The best viewpoint restaurant of the island !

The place we go, every time we come to Mauritius ! You now have to insist th make reservation on the balcony. They used to have manioc fries ("Goujonettes de manioc") and a purée of local root ("purée d'arouille"), not on the menu but real refined taste. Good proposals for red wine !

Talk about location! Le Chamarel Restaurant looks out over Le Morne and north to Noire Baie. On a sunny day, it doesn't get much better than this for a great view. We stopped in for a drink on the deck to take in the view and ambience. Very very nice!

We visited the Rhumerie de Chamarel during our Mauritius vacation and dined in the l'alchemiste restaurant. What a wonderful experience, great food, outstanding service in a very pleasant setting. We took a tour of the rum distillery prior to lunch and learnt much about the local district, the sugarcane harvest commencing on 23rd June and the entire distillation process escorted... More

By far the best views on the Island for any restaurant. Given the lack of great dining options on the Island , this place more than makes up for it. Great appetisers , and wonderfully put together entrees. Don't miss this place

Best views on Mauritius. We spent the first 15 of lunch taking pictures. Food prices were surprisingly reasonable given the location and views. We were greeted with smiles and warmth upon entry. Our waiter helped us pick dishes. I had the rougaille which was so yummy! I was offered more rice and beans so I had sides to finish my... More

Stopped at restaurant as part of organised island tour of South, food was included in trip and was basic but nice. Food being served to others looked good. Fantastic views from the balcony area, staff very attentive.

We visited Le Chamarel to celebrate our anniversary. The service was prompt and friendly, our food was really good, but the best part of our lunch ( they are not open in the evenings ) were the amazing view! The only reason I rated it 4 star was the mistake( I hope) when we were charged for much more expensive... More

Beautifully situated and with lovely views. The food - not in our case a dinner menu - didn't disappoint. Service prompt and friendly. Very good.

We visited Le Chamarel as part of a tour. We arrived at the restaurant which is in a great setting. Food was served promptly and service was very friend and efficient. We had things that we hadn't had before and were not disappointed by the choice. All three courses were extremely tasty and I would have again and again. If... More
