As others have commented the menu here now has more limited choice. However the fish we had was top quality and the meringue desert with salted caramel topping lovely and very different from anything we've had elsewhere. Expect to pay a premium price though. For sharing 800g of fish, one shared desert and a drink each we paid about 3000... More

I went to Le Capitaine for a lunch with my family and it was just wonderful, they take time to prepare the food but when it comes to your plate it is just fantastic and I really enjoyed mine.

We came here twice during our stay in Mauritius and both times we enjoyed our meals. The service was good as was the food. Not the cheapest of places to eat but probably reasonable value for money and a very nice setting.

Le Capitaine restaurant in Grand Bay used to be one of my favourite restaurants. The food was always very tasty and the service courteous. Today, we went to celebrate 2 birthdays there and was surprised there was a change in the menu. Ok the restaurant is allowed to change its menu. But this new menu was very restricted, there is...

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.
