Although one of the most expensive restaurants in Flic en Flac, you do get what you pay for here. The food is absolutely delicious and the presentation is spectacular. The staff are great as well and we had a lovely evening, the only down side which they can do nothing about, is that the restaurant faces away from the sea... More

There's something fishy going on here in more ways than one. I looked at the reviews and tried out this restaurant and despite the positive reviews this place was truly appalling. When I asked the waiter (who was very pleasant) what food was good he told us the seafood was excellent as we were so close to the sea. We... More

Dining at Hippocampe was a highlight of our trip to Mauritius. The Hilton hotel recommended this restaurant to us and it lived up to all the glory Hilton bestowed upon it. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The servers and owners went out of their way to ensure we were taken care of. The local art displayed added to... More

2 years ago we stayed at Flic en Flac and visited this restaurant on numerous occasions, because we loved the food and atmosphere. Staying at Grand Baie this year and wanted to revisit our favourite restaurant, we were not disappointed. The staff are very welcoming and the food is delicious. Do not expect speedy service, as the food is cooked... More

Very friendly staff and excellent food. Waiter (Guido) was quite an entertainer and also gave us a lot of information about the island and where to visit. Best restaurant we visited in Flic en Flac during our one week stay.

Located just behind Spar Pasadena Flic en Flac. Cozy for couple. Staffs are nice and foods were yummy. Deserts are just too good. ~They serve one of the best flavoured rhum around Flic en flac. Not crowded Awful music though

We spent 10 days in Flic en Flac at the beginning of May and got a bit bored with the hotel food. We tried this restaurant out for lunch first and were very impressed. It was so good we went back three evenings. The staff/owner are all very welcoming and the service is very good. The food is excellent particularly... More
