The drive was good from durban to hillcrest. Beautiful scenery all around the restaurant. The food was scrumptious. I had a large portion of hake with chips and rice. A beautiful place to take the children as well. Will definitely visit this place again.

It’s a lovely setting with plenty of play areas for kids…I think they rely on this to get families in the restaurant… But the service is SHOCKING/Disgraceful! (and it wasn’t even busy). We had to get up several times to get our own drinks! The food portions were so small and definitely over priced. We ordered nachos for the table to share and the portion size was half of that of SPUR for double the price! The nachos were stale!!! How does Spur do better nachos?!? Why is this on your menu if you can’t do a better job of it? They didn’t have half the meals on the menu based on having no lettuce. (This is on a Saturday at lunch time?!?!?) They didn’t have half the kiddies menu which was really disappointing for my girls. They didn’t have calamari strips. My one daughter ordered spaghetti bolognese - which when it finally arrived was just a bowl of very over cooked spaghetti and a few spoons of dried mince on top.. for R85!!! Again, a complete rip off for the meal that eventually arrived. My daughter’s review was “this is gross! You cook this way better?!?! How am I eating this at a restaurant?!?” I ordered the smoked salmon on sourdough bread. Again a complete disappointment. They cut the thinnest most stale piece of bread and then showered it in the leftover lettuce they magically could find - and threw a bunch of red onions on top. It was dismal. I have made better sandwiches at home. The burgers and pizzas are clearly the only safe options on their menu. But for the money we spent - it was day light robbery! The service was nonexistent! I wouldn’t go back there again it’s clearly a tourist trap for the area.

Nice design and garden area for this coffee shop in Hillcrest. Very friendly staff ready to assist. I had a big salted caramel and banana waffle. Nice and chilled vibe.

Hosted my sisters babyshower here on the 19th of August. Bonna Terra provides an in- house event coordinator who arranges the decor and catering with no additional venue hire fee. Elme and her team were AMAZING and she made planning the event effortless. She put up with all my crazy demands and last minute changes. The venue was so elegantly set up food was scrumptious. Even the wait staff on the day met all our needs. My guests still compliment how well the event went. Highly recommend

Called The restaurant to book a table for Sunday lunch for 10 people including our parents that are in their 80’s but it is sad that the restaurant won’t take booking s on a Sunday it’s really difficult with my young grandchildren and aged parents . Just went to Millflour Cafe and spent over R3000 and had a wonderful time with 3 generations for a birthday

I spent lunch time with my family at the Cafe and it was an amazing experience. If you are looking for a place away from the busy Dbn city centre, this is the best place for you and the family.

Really beautiful setting. Children loved the playground. However the food was very disappointing. Would be really worth their while to relook at their menu. I ordered a salmon salad and it was just a bowel of ice berg lettuce onion and I tiny amount of salad. Children’s food was dry and bland. This place really ticks a box for a great destination with great service and children’s activities but maybe just for a cup of coffee next time.

Excellent service, beautiful ambiance, children enjoy outdoor games, cater for vegetarians, the best pizzas, thin base, good filling and topped with enough cheese served with tangy sauce, delicious and definitely recommend

We waited a while before being seated and even then we were not attended to until we got up and asked for a waitress to take our orders. Their food was cold and served with no seasoning. The worst part is that a 15% tip is included in the total of your bill yet the overall experience is not worth paying that tip. the only upside was there being a nice play area for the kids.

Bona Terra Cafe has the perfect combination of good food and service with a great play area for kids. My little one loves exploring. There is occasionally a child minder but considering the vastness of play area, that is a challenging job. Lots of safe parking and the nursery section should satisfy most green thumbed visitors. We visit often and always recommend.
