You must have lunch here if you come to Mauritius ( Closed at night I think). The view is unbelievable. The food is great and very affordable and the service is good. Even the drive to get there is superb. I strongly recommend (from an expat who lives here).

When exploring the south of the island/Riviere Noire area, make sure to stop here for lunch. The panoramic view of the coastline and mountains will make your jaw drop. The food is good, but not great. The view and attentive service makes up for any deficiencies in food flavor/presentation.

We were not planning on stopping on the route, but saw the restaurant and stopped to have a look and a coffee. It was lunchtime and they did not mind that we just wanted a coffee and looked after us very well. The views are really very good, so is the service. The menu looked good and quality looked good...

This restaurant is worth a visit just for the spectacular views. The food is nothing special and it's a bit overpriced, but you will certainly enjoy the scenic views.

We absolutezamingly loved this place. Fantastic location (probably the best in Mauritius) and the tummy-satiating food...what more can one expect. We loved the food and had a wine selected by our server as well (will update this once I recollect what the hell did we have there :D) Make sure you get yourself a seat outside where the view is...

This restaurant is open between 12 noon - 3pm. I booked, probably didn't need to, but this got us the best table in the house. Luckily the weather was sensational, which made the view amazing. The meals were beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. The wines were cold. Staff friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for anything more. I would recommend... More

Le Chamarel has a prime position and a spectacular view. Food is excellent and well presented. Service was initially lacklustre, but improved to create overall a positive experience. A place to linger and enjoy a fine sunny day.

This a great place. The manager created a table for us with a view. The veggie food we ordered was incredibly good value and tasted unbelievably good. The whole experience was a delight.
