Stunning views

We visited this restaurant on the South Island tour after going to the Chamarel coloured earths. The hilltop location offers magnificent views. We had a starter which was made from Palm hearts served in a creamy sauce, yummy! The food was all excellent.

We dropped in for a coffee and wished we'd stayed for lunch. The restaurant is a beautifully-built, Mauritian style building with a magnificent thatched roof and a huge outdoor deck with lots of large trees and greenery - and then there's the view. The view of Le Morne is magnificent from here and provides lots of good photo opportunities. We... More

Simply amazing view. The food I will give a 4 out of 5. Service is ok too. Staff are well groomed. The location of the restaurant is simply amazing, so peaceful and sometime you just want to close your eyes and listen to the birds...

Great food - reasonable prices and a fantastic amazing awesome view! Make sure to beat the lunch rush and get a seat right at the edge of the deck - HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting away from the expensive hotel prices :)

First of all, we can all agree that the view is absolutely amazing and that the service is friendly as well. We were also rather happy with the starters (crab dish and red tuna carpaccio) as well as with the desserts (ice cream and Tiramisu). However, the main courses were a disaster. Whereas the chicken & prawn curry was seriously... More

Chamarel is a tourist restaurant and while it has some of the best scenic views on the l'il Maurice, unfortunately the quality of the food lets it down - particularly at the price! I suppose if paying in dollars, pounds or euros it is probably not expensive. In the off-season though it has to rely on local trade mostly and... More
