After his "lavender barn" restaurant was flooded, Mauro Nettle has relocated to the Elephant walk, whose already fine reputation is further enhanced by his presence. It is definitely no longer Belgian in nature. Mauro is very serious about Italian food, and it shows in the excellent, balanced menu that includes the usual (very well made) pizzas and pastas, but also veal, chicken and meat dishes. Mauro has developed his sauces into a fine art, and I think that is where his signature lies. Elephant walk is about 20 minutes outside Port Elizabeth, and it is worth setting aside a couple of hours to enjoy a lazy weekend lunch under the trees. Also take time to browse the quaint shops on the premises, where you can get bric a brac, and some very good organic foods and fresh produce.
