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 were in Mauritius last year...and we still vividly remember the meal we had here. The view was fab...but the food made us forget everything else. 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

I went to Le Capitaine for a lunch with my family and it was just wonderful, they take time to prepare the food but when it comes to your plate it is just fantastic and I really enjoyed mine.

We came here twice during our stay in Mauritius and both times we enjoyed our meals. The service was good as was the food. Not the cheapest of places to eat but probably reasonable value for money and a very nice setting.

Today, we went to celebrate 2 birthdays there and was surprised there was a change in the menu. Ok the restaurant is allowed to change its menu. But this new menu was very restricted, there is...

However, while having our food on the terrace, there was moskitoes around and my bad luck, one fell on my plate and got trapped in the sauce. I had to give back my plate as it was a natural... More
