We are very proud of our food here at Butterfly Space as we have trained Nkhata Bay’s finest chefs to cater for your every need. Our restaurant is open daily from 7am – 9pm serving a variety of meals which are exceptionally good value for your money including; breakfast, lunch and snacks. We have two menus consisting of a variety of western and local dishes and every night at 7:30pm we share in a communal evening meal, including a meat or vegetarian option around a big table near the kitchen. This changes daily and is always tasty, ranging from pizza, cooked in our clay oven, to fish caught that day in the lake.
We grow most of our fresh produce from our gardens on site at Butterfly, otherwise we always buy from local farmers and vendors to help support the community. The rest of our stock is bought from Nkhata Bay or from the colourful fresh fruit market in the nearby city of Mzuzu. Our meals range from 500 Kwacha to our most expensive which is the evening meal at 2000 Kwacha for the meat option.
Our fully stocked beach bar is set in the perfect location, situated down at the beach away from any rooms or camping spots. Serving the famous Carlsberg ‘green’ beer and a variety of spirits and soft drinks, it makes it the best spot for a sunset drink to kick back and watch the world go by. Here you can also relax and play the local game Bao or chill out to the popular African tunes being played from our bar stereo. Our drinks range from 350 Kwacha for a soft drink, 400 Kwacha for a water to 800 Kwacha for a beer (Green), and up to 600 Kwacha for spirits. We also have free drinking tap water for all of our guests to fill up your bottles as much as you like from the many taps dotted around the ground. We hold a popular pub quiz every week which goes down a treat where great prizes can be won! This is however not a party bar so you won’t be kept up all night although we will throw a party from time to time for a special occasion.
