very nice place indeed. very friendly staff members and welcoming. beautiful view on the outside terrace. The food is amazingly nice.

on our first evening in Mauritius we opted for the capitaine encouraged by the good position on the bay, and stimulated by the fact that our lonely planet guide mentioned it. Well, it was not so romantic and chic as it wants to appear from the exterior. Our table cloth was dirty and full of spots and the plates were... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here whilst we were staying in Balaclava. My parents, husband and children really enjoyed their meals. My only suggestion would be to offer more vegetarian options on the menu. The staff were very attentive and helpful.

Over priced and superciliously staffed. Nice view but eat elsewhere. Many better options. Drive a bit further to find many gems.

Great views from this restaurant, nice waiter but the food is just ok. The calamari was very chewy. My husband and son ordered 2 different dishes but when it came to the table they were identical?? The prawns in tomato sauce was nice and fresh. Menu needs updating.

We went to this restaurant for lunch after many years thinking we would get an improved service but we were disappointed with our choice. Service seems to have staled to the same average standard over the years, compared to the new restaurants where you have dynamic and enthusiastic waiters. Although we were attended by a waiter promptly, we think this... More

Friendly service and tasty food, clean plates all-round, even from the kids. Upmarket feel but reasonable prices and extensive menu.

Le Capitaine is very well appointed on Rue Royale in Grand Baie. It is pricey so best reserved for that 'special night' out during your Mauritian holiday. Food was fabulous, although the portions were smallish and may not be enough for voracious appetites.
