We went there after reading reviews in lonely planet. We tried the buffet and unfortunately it was nothing spectacular. The buffet was offering limited choice, salad, 3 mains (fish curry, chicken Chinese style, chicken with mushrooms) 3 vegetables but only 2 were available, and desert. Not impressive for 1060 MRU for two of us. We had a look at the... More

I am a vegetarian so my review will be restricted to veg food and desserts. This place has two options A la carte and buffet. I have mostly gone for buffet as I get variety (when you compare it with other restaurants) in veg food. You get Nan (Indian flat bread), Salads, Chilly (Mauritius signature chutney), Pickles, Coconut Chutney, Dal/Kidney... More

Koming here since five years we never were dissapointed, and always got very fresh fish, vegetables, served by utmost gentle personel. The price was pritty ok for Mauritius. If you are in Port-Louis, it is easy to find and worthwhile!

I have come here for a number of business lunches and the food has always been served quickly, well presented and very tasty. Will be back here for sure in the future and a place certainly to visit if you need a business lunch..

If you have limited time in Mauritius and don't want to spend a fortune at the big hotels, eating at La Bonne Marmite offers a reasonably priced alternative to the best of Mauritian cuisine. Over the years (I visit Mauritius about once every 18 months on average), this restaurant has featured tasty venison, curries of meat and fish, delicious rougaille.... More

My friends went to lunch on a week days. The welcome was very warm. Friendly staff. The settings was perfect. The buffet menu was exquis and even get dessert for Rs 511 per pax including a soft drink. Very nice and the atmosphere is very cozy for a city lunch.
