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.

The main highlight of this restaurant is the view and here you can't go wrong. You sit on a beautiful terrase overlooking the bay and the clear blue water. The setting is ideal, service was good and the wine selection is also quite impressive. I have read several other reviews and I do agree that the food quality is just... More

We got 3 appetizers to share and it was not enough. However, I bill was 60 USD! Its situated in an odd position on the side of the road so don't... More

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.

Stopped here having walked out of town. Very pleasant mild curry and beautiful view. Nice cocktails and pleasant S African wine. An idyllic spot for lunch. Friendly and attentive staff.

Food was cold, tasteless and uninspied. Staff were rude and when we suggested it was not good they just wanted to give us another meal of the same poor quality. Do not go to this restaurant if you want good food on your holiday.

We dined here while staying at the Grand Baie. The place was brilliant and the food incredible. The music and area were great. We enjoyed fusion cuisine, and we were really looking forward to trying fusion with creole cuisine. I don't understand why this place gets bad reviews, perhaps we just caught it on a good day. Still we really... More
