Service was disappointing and somewhat rude - we were not even greeted when the waiter arrived at our table. Food lacked taste and was just ok. Music was too loud that we had to shout to be able to talk to each other. I don't recommend.

I used to love this place 5-8 years ago but in the last 2-3 years i probably have 1 half decent visit on each trip to Mauritius. Food is ok but the standard of service is appalling & very rude. Last visit i walked out after 25 minutes and 4 requests for a drink/menu. Got Marmite bar.

I had grilled squid and my wife lobster. Both were good but in an extraordinary place like mauritius we were expecting extraordinary dishes. It's ok for one go to vary among the restaurants of the area.

All I can say is that we were expected to know our drink and food menu with 5 minutes of seating. Had my main course etc all cleared away while my wife still ate hers! Felt we needed to eat and go! So didn't have desert or coffee etc. No chat or pleasantries from the male host and no advice... More

We have just arrived home from our trip to Mauritius, the last leg spent in Troix aux Biche. We visited Souvenir several times during our stay for both lunch and diner and we both agree the food was wonderful. The staff were friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was great. We loved their Min Frite, Curry Crevette, Boule Renverse and... More

The location close to the beach is great. The food is good and service works well. There is nothing to complain about, nothing to praise etiher. It seems to me that the restaurant was quite popular, propably because of the good position. Prices are nice and there are many options to choose from so everyone will find something to eat.

The min frit and bol renversé kept us coming back time and again for lunch as we were staying around the corner. The flavours were very authentic Mauritian and the service was very good. Also it was reasonably priced.
