Billy Suter, whose website SoSuterBill is an excellent site covering entertainment, was invited to lunch at a wonderland of a spot, awash with inventiveness, colourful quirkiness and surprise.

It’s a new, 160-seater wedding venue that will also soon double as a supper theatre. However, it is already doing a brisk breakfast and lunch trade in its central, circular-shaped cafĂ© under a domed roof – an area which leads off the wedding venue and also connects to a quirky, 'vintage' decor store, a ‘secret garden’ and a day spa.

It’s the must-visit The Grand Exotic, a new find in Sheffield Beach, near Salt Rock on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast.
