Cold beer, generous portions of good food, space for the kids to play, and a great selection of curios in the shop.

We were travelling to Sodwana Bay and were looking for different meal.
Meals are served according to time only. Breakfast menu items are between 8 and 10 and lunch meals only after 10.
The breakfast was absolutely superb. There was no excess oils / fats on one plate once complete.
While waiting for our breakfast we were able to visit the local craft market items for sale. Unfortunately the craft beer stall was closed. We arrived just after 8. Did not have time to go to the nursery.

Wonderful woven baskets, a bit more geared for the tourists. Lovely garden setting and looks like nice cafe.

we were so happy we found this shop! from the name, we thought it would only be baskets, but it had everything! and the cafe even had a lounging cat on the deck for us to pet. Highly recommend!

We were looking for a good halfway stop between Tembe Elephant Park and Zinkwazi, and I am so pleased that someone recommended Ilala Weavers. It is a charming place to visit, with its huge, graceful fever trees, and interesting crafts. 3 in our party ordered the Greek salad for lunch. It seemed fresh, but perhaps contained too much cucumber to suit the taste of our guests. I ordered a butternut quiche, and 2 others in our party ordered the bacon quiche. It was really, really delicious!

We love visiting Ilala weavers for a relax atmosphere, good food and a play area for children while food is being prepared.
We enjoyed our light meal, which was served beautifully.
Afterwards, when we were ready to leave, I found my daughter in the curio shop making a purchase.
I was somewhat concerned with the way a delicate item was packed and resting on its ears so attempted to safely repackage it. No problem at this point. The one assistant asked the other what the matter was and she replied using a derogatory reference to me being the problem *thinking* I didn’t understand Zulu. How wrong she was! I challenged her and she apologised which actually makes it worse because she apologised for being caught. Had I, like many people who shop there, not understood her - there would have not been an apology!
