Brilliant!

Such a good atmosphere, Jacques really knows how to make his guests feel welcomed. Food is really good, typical Mauritian one. Drinks all day long.

Jacques greeted us on arrival and showed us up to the booth overlooking the racecourse. We had an enjoyable day and the atmosphere at the racecourse along with the noise... More

If you are in Mauritius over a weekend you MUST go to the races and use the Crown Lodge! Jacques (the host) was fantastic, unlimited drink and very tasty snacks throughout the day. We met some lovely people who were in the Crown Lodge with us and even won some money! Highly recommended.

Spent a wonderful Saturday with Jaques in the Crown Lodge. The perfect host offered copious amounts of food and drink throughout the day, whilst we were almost in touching distance of the winning line, the winners enclosure and the paddock. Although not a great gambler felt we had to go to this top attraction in Mauritius, once you have experienced... More

Even my 5 and 7 year old girls loved it. Dress smartly, bet on odd horses (I recommend the favourites) enjoy the atmosphere and the lovely snacks and the gin tonic and spend a fabulous day at the races. This actually was one of the highlights of our week in Mauritius.
