Quaint, casual bistro type restaurant. I had the veggie stack and "wow"... so delicious, with every element perfectly prepared.

I was visiting Wilderness for 3 weeks and we came here 3 times. What we like about this restaurant is that they have quite a few south african dishes. I tryed the Ostrich steak. Fantastic!! Tried the curries too. Also fantastic. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. It's cosy and the staff are super friendly. Prices are good too.

I just love this place. Such a cosy and friendly environment. Had the best Sesame Seared Tuna Salad for lunch and some sweet potato fries. Super combination of flavors. Thanks to Chef Leo. Overall a pleasant experience that I would highly recommend.

My daughter and I chose Flava for a light lunch on Easter Monday due to its unique and tasty menu and the availability of light lunches. It is worth noting that it is also great for dinner. We enjoyed sitting upstairs overlooking the Wilderness restaurant precinct. What a relaxing and comfortable location. We loved it. The Trivial Pursuit cards were... More

We found this restaurant nearby. It's a very homely place. The staff were fantastic and food simply amazing. Staff were very helpful in selection of food and wine. The best part of this place was the price. Great Value for money 💰 and well worth a visit. Highly recommended. The ribs and mutten curry were amazing
