Restaurant and Bar

Your stay at Chembe Eagles Nest is guaranteed to be filled with great memories of spectacular food! We believe, every meal should be a taste experience. Our menu changes on a regular basis, and is sure to be exciting and "different".

Should you wish to have a more "laid back" dinner, speak to us about a barbeque or a traditional South African "potjie". Our outside "braai" area, built into the rock face, is always popular with guests.

Lunches can also be organised on Domwe Island during your snorkelling trips. All our meals are prepared from the beginning with fresh ingredients and exotic flavour which is purely African, ensuring that every meal is a culinary delight for the senses.
