Great view, great cook, service a bit shy but friendly

Original, artful salads, but a bit pricy. We had palm hearts salad with kono kono, not knowing what to expect: it was lovely. The view from the terrace is unbelievable

Very cozy restaurant with great food. And when i said "great food" i meant - very tasty. The food is very simple, but all products are fresh, honest and prepared very well. Kids menu is great, all kinds of meat and fish. I definitely recommend.

We came here for lunch on the world's quickest visit to Mauritius (on the way to La Reunion). Worth it to get the Dodo stamp on the passport. This restaurant has a great setting overlooking the bay. The food was tasty and colourful. Great start to our trip.

Good service and enjoyed the food very much. A bit pricey though a nice environment. Enjoyed a good spaghetti aux fruits de la mer.

Signs saying that due to "technical problems", they're unable to accept credit cards. This restaurant has one prominently displayed, and I find it really irritating. Why not be honest about their reasons for putting customers to this inconvenience? Also, the service was not particularly friendly.

a very nice and relaxing meal right on the Mahebourg waterfront - lovely ambience. The second best Mauritian food we tried on the island (Best was Canne a Sucre in Flic En Flac). Restaurant was just busy enough, but not noisy. Lovely outside seating with view over harbour. Food was very good - traditional creole style sausages absolutely delicious, curries... More

We were in Mahebourg for Christmas Eve, and this place was offering venison. What to say? Over-priced and really bland food pitched at euro-pallets. We had much more fun and much better value at local places like The Kimberley.

The most expensive spot in Mahebourg, we literally had a few beers only to get a bill that shocked the daylight out of us. This place insists you pay cash and charges 3 x the average price of a local beer! Felt like we were ripped off badly which leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Would hate to know... More
