Stopped here for a look around and beer after visiting central market. Expensive compared to UK prices but lots of foreigners enjoying food and drinks. Just not for us. We like... read more

I you have time to waste it is a nice shopping destination. Expensive, crowded with tourist and looks like a shopping center anywhere in the world. I bought a tie, that was produced in Mauritius.

Stopped here for a look around and beer after visiting central market. Expensive compared to UK prices but lots of foreigners enjoying food and drinks. Just not for us. We like traditional! Go if you want to spend cash and shop!

Well it gets talked about with a sense of pride by locals. It is essentially a modern shopping mall. I guess that's unusual for Mauritius but, well it's just a Mall with shops?

If you're happen to be around it's ok to pass by but go "to see" it- no point. Shopping center like million others, only this one is in port. Regular shops around like pharmacies, clothing shops (reg companies that sell everywhere else in the world - wont give name) and coffee places, bank and book store. Few food places so... More

Perhaps we should come here at least once! Beautiful place, beautiful houses nearby - shops and restaurants. The capital of Mauritius - a very modern city.

The waterfront is a mix of cultures. There are lots of restaurants, souvenir shops , as well as high market shops. It was an eye-opening excellent experience to mix with the locals at all levels.

The waterfront makes for a good place to hang out and eat. The food court has delicious food but everything is overpriced. The shops and touristy places are ridiculously expensive while the same things are being sold at other places for half the price. I definitely recommend a visit but save your money when it comes to shopping.

We enjoyed the orange juice stand and the bookshop, but the food seemed mediocre. Still, the decorations were charming, the stores upscale and it's pleasant enough. If you're lacking fancy shopping elsewhere, this may be for you. Meanwhile, the bookstore has wonderful kids books on Mauritius!

A nice little waterfront but as seems to be the norm in Port Louis, found it rather expensive when compared to shops and restaurants in Grand Baie.

Separated from the rest of Port Louis by a major road, Caudan waterfront has been totally revamped and offers many restaurants and shops. It's about the only area a foreigner is advised to walk around after sundown in Port-Louis. The restaurants and the shops are nothing out of the ordinary but the crafts center does have a few things.
