The restaurant is relatively nice and waiters were friendly but the food is not very tasty.

I had a "petit poussin" (little chicken) which was supposed to be hot but was in fact sweet and pretty dry.

Had many fantastic evenings here, great having a owner/chef looking after you all evening - way better than your "chain" restaurants where it becomes a process. Great food great atmosphere.

This is a restauranteur that deserves to succeed. The food was fresh, simply prepared (as requested) and the staff go out of their way to be polite without crowding you...I was delighted to see they are still doing well.

cannot recommend Flava highly enough. First experience made us return the following evening -both for the food and the wonderful ambience and thoughtfulness of the owner John, who made special arrangements for my family who were in town for the memorial of my dad. He contributed to a week of very special memories. Thank you John, Jess and the team.

Always willing to try new restaurants Flava was our destination on a Tuesday evening. Having left PE some 11 years ago we we certainly impressed with the emerging precinct of Richmond Hill, and that continued into the restaurant. We were greeted at the door, shown to our table and soon our charming waitress explained the menu and noted the most popular dishes, pointing out their famous rump steaks. The wine list although modest provided sufficient variety and prices were keen. Our party of 4 ordered the rump (medium rare), the fillet (medium), the pork fillet and my personal favourite the brandy-flambé fillet, medium rare with Madagascar green peppercorn sauce. Mash was very unusual - a must to try. Such a welcome change from hand cut chips. Your cut of meat is personalised by owner-chef John at the counter. Service flowed smoothly without too much bother, and arrived beautifully presented. Both the waitress and owner enquired at various intervals as to how we were enjoying our meals - the difference was that they were actually enquiring, not just asking because that's what you are supposed to do. All up a great evening and would have no hesitation in recommending Flava to our friends. The only change I would make is to have a better quality wine glass - it really does make a difference.
