This is a very nice restaurant with a friendly staff. We had a delicious seafood meal which was served in a lovely setting. For all the food we ate, the bill was not heavy at all I must say!!

Since our last vist to this restaurant 1 year ago many things have changed. The menu has been reduced by more than half which is not a bad thing as it was a huge thing to choose from before. Secondly the prices have increased by a large amount from last year. Starters are approx euro 15 and main can be... More

Le Capitaine is situated in one of the best spots in Grand Baie, looking out over the picturesque Pointe Aux Cannoniers. The place is tasteful; contemporary comfort meets traditional wooden verandah. The beach-side tables offer the best views, scenic during the day and very romantic at night. Its a deservedly busy place (booking recommended), with high quality, varied cuisine -... More

We were early in the restaurant and it was quiet. It took a long time before someone came by to ask what we wanted to drink. We asked for bread and butter, but we did not get it. The menu is very limited, there is not much choice and expensive. The menu which is on the website is not correct.... More

This is one of those LEGENDARY restaurants!!! Unbelievable seafood, beautifully presented, coupled with really great service! Also, so well located. Right in the middle of Grand Baie and on the bay itself. I will be frequenting Le Capitaine with business colleagues and family.

Great service! We had dinner there on a Monday night and we were pleased with the live acoustic entertainment. We shared the tiger prawns and the octopus papaya curry.The mains were good but we were expecting a little bit more in terms of flavours. Only one choice of white wine by the glass which is strange considering that they have... More

We had the lobster ravioli...which is my most memorable dish till date anywhere. My wife absolutely loved the seafood platter...and we both finished every bit of sauce from our dishes...it was that awesome...we have... More

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
