One of my favourite restaurant in grand baie

Le Capitaine is in a great location by the sea, been there several times with the family, and we were never disappointed, although, not the cheapest in the area. Only complaint, The special Christmas menu was very limited.

We we're recommended this restaurant from a local. It had really great service, good food and reasonable prices. Although it's a restaurant focused on fish, it could provide a perfect beef.

Visited this restaurant with colleagues whilst working in Mauritius. Having visited a number of restaurants in Grand Baie this was the standout meal. I had the Dorade fillet in masala cooked in banana leaf - utterly delicious. Service was very attentive too.

For starter we had tuna carpaccio and confited duck liver. Both were excellent but the duck was amazing! For mains we had king prawns and fish in banana leaf. Also great. For dessert we had créme brulé and "le mourn". The créme brulé was ok (mauritians don't seem to be able to make this dessert at all since we've tried... More

We had a dinner there with my husband. The food was great and the wine, one of the best is Mauritius. The service was a little slow and a little bit expensive.
