We visited the cafe to view as a venue for a family celebration. After being shown around we were sufficiently impressed to make a booking for a future date. We decided to stay and have lunch. Even though it was only 11.20, they happily allowed...us to choose from the lunch menu which is served from 11.30. Enjoyed our meal, great ambiance and friendly, helpful staff.More

The food was tasty , good portion size and well priced and presentation of the food was wonderful. I will highly recommend this Cafe and we already planning our return tripMore

During our stay in the Durban area, we went to Talloula three times — twice for lunch and once for mid afternoon drinks. Each time, we felt at ease; truly blessed by the welcome by the staff and the choices that we had on the...menu. We tried both the vegetarian option curry, the lamb curry, and the lovely warm peach salad. Great food, great presentation, and attention to detail such as sauté the red onion & toasting the almonds & serving the basmati rice in a earthen ware pot. Also appreciated the kindness of the staff when we visited with a toddler in hand; thank you for appreciating their needs.More

I recently got married at Talloula. The team was incredible. They are extremely organised, and honest about what works and what doesn't on your wedding day. The food was delicious. The flowers and decor surpassed all my expectations. Both were great value for money. The...venue is stunning, with a beautiful garden, and balcony for guests to sip a drink on while the sun sets. The day ran smoothly despite bad weather - and every effort was made to made the day stress free and beautiful. I can't recommend this venue highly enough.More

Beautiful setting under the white umbrellas in the front garden or inside if you so choose. The breakfast is always outstanding. Nothing more special than to be greeted by the same staff, (have not been there this year!) owner always check if everything is in...order. This is really a very special place in my heart and then you see the ladies left to go for a quick treatment at the spa. Pure bliss and highly recommendedMore

Lovely setting. Divine milkshakes & delicious coffee. Creme brule` was not pleasant as it had not set properly. Manager/Owner was gracious enough to offer me something else in place however.

I recently got married at Talloula and what a wow! I literally lost no sleep from the moment my wife and I viewed the venue, up until the wedding day. From the get go Louis and Glynnis were super friendly and easy to work with....The venue has an amazing working relationship with suppliers like DJ’s, cake etc. Literally half of your stress is eliminated. Pamela kept us informed throughout the entire Journey. Load shedding kicked in and they had a generator to ensure that my day was not spoilt. I cannot thank you guys enough for such an amazing wedding.More

Had lunch at Treat Cafe on Sunday. What a relaxing, great venue. We sat inside with a view over the back gardens as it was a bit warm outdoors. I had the Mozambique Chicken Skewers which were succulent and tasty. My partner had the Smoked...Salmon pasta which she said was great. They also offer a selection of different Gin's which is a great way to enjoy the day. The staff are friendly and willing to assist where they can. We ended up sitting outside as it got cooler and enjoyed the tranquility of the surroundings. The owners were both working and friendly in accommodating us. Will definitely be back!More

If you are looking for a venue for a celebration then you need look no further than Treat Cafe. From the moment we booked my morher’s 80th celebration to the moment we walked out the doors everything was perfect. Glynnis and her team were attentive...but not smothering, the food fabulous and the gins cold! The decor was exactly what we had imagined and more and the balloon installation spectacular! We have had so many people comment on the wonderful time they had and guests from far and wide amazed that something this wonderful is hidden in Botha’s Hill. Thank you to the Treat team for making my mother’s celebration one that we will remember for a long time to come! Now what can we plan next........More

Worth drive from Durban - wonderful for long Sunday lunches (especially when its misty rain!) or meeting friends for Saturday morning breakfast. Food is divine - staff are super friendly and efficient and decor is - well - my kind of place. The wedding venue...(Talloula) is very special too.

It never disappoints. I never have ‘food envy’ when eating there. (Wishing I had ordered a dish someone else had ordered rather than my own meal). The meals are well thought out, freshly cooked (including the pies, which are a 25 minute delay but well...worth the wait). Attention to detail is amazing. You will never be disappointed if you eat there. Remember to book as it is a small Restuarant and very popular. There are also outside tables if the weather is goodMore
