Very good!

Very good and cosy place. Nice live music, good food and reasonable prices. Only negative thing is that we had to wait almost 1 hour for our pre-dinner snacks, but apart from that a place to be recommended.

Lovely and lively venue. The place is happening mostly on Friday and Saturday nights. Both staffs and owners (Nora & Clive) are very welcoming. This place comes highly recommend to those looking for a alfresco restaurant. Perfect for couples wanting some intimacy or a good group of friends who wants a good night out. Delicious choice of seafood and local... More

We have used this restaurant several times over the last few years. This year we arrived and found that our favourite starter, crab gratin, had been removed from the menu the day before, but that was not a problem and was immediately served to us, very tasty it was too. However, my father ordered the duck main course and was... More

I have been there last week, they take far too long to bring your food since they want you to spend on drinks before you get your food. We were there for 3 hours and the waiter realised the chef forgot to make our food. Therefore, since we took a whole grilled fish (1kg), it was done on big flame... More

Dear Guests, I am sincerely sorry that you had a bad experience at Our restaurant, But I had spoken with your partner and explained the way we cook our fish, he complimented on the taste and the ambiance. I apologized for the long service as u could see we where very busy that night. We hope that you visit us... More

Decided to try this one, following the comments on Tripadvisor. Doesn't have the beach back drop, but it makes up in the atmosphere. The service was one of the best, the people are friendly and have a smile for you. The food was very good. Only down side was some adults didn't mind all their children run madly around the... More

My partner and myself ate here this past weekend. This restaurant came out ahead of our other favourite restaurant in Grand Baie (La Terrasse) with some simply stunning food (one of the best meals I've ever had), however it was twice as expensive. I have to make a mention of our waitress, a young lady who had a great sense... More

My partner found this restaurant on trip advisor and the excellent reviews attracted us. We were not disappointed. The staff are lovely and attentive. You have the option to sit outside or inside. We chose to sit outside as it was such a romantic atmosphere. There are just a few lights dotted around and candles on the tables. We were... More

We found this restaurant by chance and wished we would have found it sooner. It's a bit hidden from the road by a wall. Great food, great staff, reasonably priced.

We went for a casual dinner out and we found out one of the best places in Mauritius, really! As soon as you get in, it looks like you're in a world apart, far from the main road and the rest of the village. Grab a chair outside, under the umbrellas, and the kind waitress for help you through the... More

Both my son and I stumbled upon this place when looking for another Café / Bar. The Hidden Reef is a gem of a place. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the beer is cold and refreshing but, most of all, the staff are the most welcoming people I have come across in a lifetime of travelling all over...
