“Innovative and Daring”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Today I ordered one of the specials of the day - Cob on a bed of broccoli/spinach/mash potato. What was surprising was, that when it arrived, it also contained small squares of bacon. Full marks to the chef for being brave enough to fly in the face of tradition and in the process turn a grilled fish dish into an adventure of gourmet propositions. Never a dull and disappointing eating experience at Flava!

“Unpretentious, fab food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Love the lively and cosy atmosphere of Flava and the earth-bound menu options. Really good cooking has earned them a strong local following and we haven't been disappointed yet.

“Good cooking and excellent service”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We were all impressed with this place. The cooking was really good and the manager attentive.
It was a Saturday night and we booked, but only a couple of hours before eating, however, I guess when the area is busy in the summer you would be well advised to book in advance.
I had a simply fab fish dish, it was the "line fish", which was Cob, a fish I have never tasted before, but which was really tasty, firm fleshed, had crispy skin, and was served with peas, other vegs and a creamy sauce.
Everyone enjoyed the food, there are wide variety of dishes on the menu to suit all tastes.

Good food, reasonable prices and a homey atmosphere - I particularly loved the chips, made from real potatoes! And they were very kind and sweet to my aged grandfather.

Had a lovely dinner (March 2013) on the upstairs terrace and what made the evening was a surprise appearance by the opera singing chef!
