Mauritian meal with a fantastic view

Our tour of the south-west took us to Le Chamarel Restaurant on what was a really wet day. However the rain stopped and we were treated to a fantastic view to match the excellent meal we were served.

I booked a lunch through an agency as part of a road trip to surprise my daughter before she went back to university. As expected she was delighted when we reached there as it brought back some fond memories of other road trips done in the past. We were more than enchanted with the idyllic setting and asked for a...

Called in for a coffee and spectacular views - very friendly and accommodating -especially as the place was fully booked with tour buses for lunch. Decided to book in another day for ourselves - would be THE most spectacular place for sundowners, but told the don't take bookings after 3pm. I'm sure this is a fab place to eat lunch... More

I loved the chicken, the BBQ sauce and the view. WAUW. If you book "the south and it's secret" you come here to eat.

Very good cuisine and awesome view!!! As a group, a special buffet was prepared for our team. The dessert 'chocolate mousse' was 5-stars!

We went to this restaurant in an excursion to Chamarel. The food is excelent and the place beautiful. Besides the lunch we visited the sugar cane factory and tasted the Rums and liquors. Definitely it deserves a visit. :)

This one we just had to walk down a short gentle slope to reach the restaurant, and we were greeted by the Manager Mr.Feizal Gunga who is really hands on. He made sure we were happy with everything!. Food was great and the wait staff was up to par. I will certainly go back.

The restaurant seems to be a success for 22 years. Its altitude grants it a spectacular view on the lagoon from the terrasse. Generally needs a booking but arriving for early lunch, we manage to have a table easily for two. However, don't be too excited by the cuisine, it is a simple cuisine. Relax, enjoy the view and the... More
