We have had the most amazing dinners at this restaurant. The service is great and the food is amazing, every time. Their seafood is just about unrivaled. If you are looking for a romantic evening out, I would suggest them for sure.

We usually just come for the coffee which is one of the best we've had in Grand Bay. The food is not bad, quite expensive for the amount you get. We received very good service every time and I'm sure we will continue to do so in future visits

Restaurant was recommended as one of the best in Grand Baie (even one of the best in Mauritius). Not fine dining at all.... but perfectly good food. Because of the cyclone, many dishes were not available but the atmosphere was great. Ordered rare steak... got medium rare/almost well done steak. But the wine was great!

The waiters were fine but the restaurant manager was not of the expected caliber. The quality of food has deteriorated significantly over the past few months. Hygiene remains questionable as their bin was very smelly and an obnoxious smell blew into the restaurant every time there would be a northerly breeze. The price is no longer appropriate for the quality... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel. The ambiance and service was average. I ordered lobster without looking at the price and was shocked by the fact that they served langoustine instead of lobster and for £120 GBP. Even if they served lobster it would have been far too expensive. The dessert, was missing half its ingredients and wasn't cooked.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend as being "the" fish restaurant to visit in Mauritius. It was OK but, just OK and, very expensive for what it was. In truth, we ate far better shellfish at the airport in Dubai, for far less money! Over-rated.

We booked here on the off chance and what a surprise we got a lovely restaurant with lovely views and ambience. Most of the nicer restaurants in Mauritius seem overpriced to me , this was the same, but much better overall for food. The night we went there was a guy playing piano and singing which added to the evening.

The food was generally good, nice view and atmosphere. Waiters friendly except the restaurant manager of the day who obviously lacks manners - shouting in the restaurant to clients in the car park.
