Lovely food but a bit of dead atmosphere

We ate here once during our stay at the Constance Belle Mare Plage. I preferred both the Deer Hunter and La Spiaggia to this restaurant but it is still a very pleasant dining experience. The food was very nice, my beef filler was a particular highlight; perfectly cooked with great flavour and... read more

The hotel has a beautiful beach, setup, rooms and has a wide range of activities. The Blue Penny Café is a must-try during your stay. Amuse-bouches assortment was tasty and nicely presented. Interesting bread selection and would be nice to have a plain brown bread as well. Very good discreet service from polite staff including a knowledgeable Sommelier which is... More

The Blue Penny Café inside the Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel was closed in 2012 when we were in Mauritus last time. This time it was open and we went there with our Hotel “half-board” voucher. The food was superb and the recommended wine matched perfectly.

Cafe is not a correct term, as this is a gourmet restaurant within the Belle Mare Plage Hotel. It is so good that advance booking is absolutely essential. We visited twice and each time it was fabulous.

Our first visit was for the Saturday night wine menu. The choice of wines the Sommelier chose went extremely well with the delicious food. It was our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed in any way. Our Second visit was ten days later when we tried the taster menu. Yet again, the sommeliers help in choosing the best wine...
