Stumbled on this place and delighted we did. Superb menu selection with many French/Mauritian/Seafood dishes and the Crab Gratin was out of this world. To be remembered for a long time. Service very pleasant - karaoke entertainment slightly unnecessary!

First night there was perfect including the old Mauritian and French songs from yesteryear. Mauritian Starters A1. Good meal with deer and boar. Second night we overdid the Mauritius starters and we had no appetite left but food was excellent including sea food gratin. Bit of a bohemian or laissez faire ambiance. .pleasant Definitely worth one visit. ..

Good choice of dishes - I was accompanied by a Mauritienne who approved of the variety of local and global choices. Chips were the best I've eaten in years. Desserts delicious. Prices seemed fair to me - I wasn't paying. The live singing was pleasant - we were seated outside; don't know if it would have been intrusive inside.

We had an excellent meal at a nice location. When the bill came we had an unplesant surprise. The bill was twice what we expected. When we checked it we noticed that our dessert was charged three times and that the total amount was 600 rupees higher than anything we found on the check. When we spoke to the staff... More

Good menu with lots of choices to suit a wide range of tastes. Liked the chilli cakes. Less keen on the continuos karaoke style entertainment, although the guy wasn't a bad singer.

This restaurant is in a gorgeous location - on the seafront in Mahebourg and close to the market. The service was slow but given the view this wasn't too big a deal for us, we were happy to sit and enjoy where we were. The food was great, we had calamari and fried aubergine, followed by grilled chicken and a... More

This restaurant has a lovely position overlooking the sea in Mahebourg but we found the service slow and while the food was good it was very overpriced compared with other places in the area
