Enjoyable Evening

Great Service and fantastic setting. Food was good but too much garlic was used, making it overpowering. Steak was nice and tender. The service of the guy helping to park your car in a secure spot was good.

Ok, Ok, it was low season but still very few tables occupied the evening we visited this restaurant. The parking right next to the restaurant helps to find a save spot for your car and the guy helping you to find your way back to the car when its dark is a good service. Lots of dishes on the menu,... More

We visited on 11 May & had excellent seafood. The grilled lobster was fantastic. The service & atmosphere was really good. A 3 course seafood meal with a bottle of wine & including a lobster main course was just over £100 for 2 which was excellent value considering the quality of the food.

I have a feeling Le Capitaine has struck some sort of a deal with the local taxi drivers because almost all of the cabbies we asked, told us it is the best restaurant in Grand Baie. I don't think so though, after me & my friends went there for lunch. The location is very nice, by the water, and the... More

We found this restaurant after we had starters at selfish and found the food and atmosphere disappointing. Couldn't have found a better place, right on the beach, jazz music and fantastic staff. Good variety of dishes on menu - at table of six we all chose different dishes (fillet steak, duck breast, confit duck, tiger prawns, octopus curry and dorado... More

Fully recommend this well situated restaurant by the water edge. Next to the road yet totally protected from dust and traffic noise. The service friendly, efficient, food good and winelist well chosen. Not recommended: the profiterolles filled with icecream making them chewy and soggy. Prices not overly expensive for a holiday resort.

We had a bit of a problem finding this restaurant. Turn left in Grand Baie when you reach the sea and its on the right overlooking the bay. We had a good scallop and prawn starter followed by 2 fish mains and a dessert. We enjoyed watching the boats moving around in the bay. The service was good and we... More
