A little Italian gem in Mauritius

We went to 1974 for dinner with our two small children. The restaurant was very hot inside - although we were offered a table outside it was too close to the entrance and the kitchen noise. Despite it being very hot the owners refused to turn on either of their airconditioners - instead we had a... read more

Pamplemousses, Mauritius………. on this Paradise Island with its relaxed blending of cultures and history, it first made me think back of Pamplemousse, France, near St. Tropez, 1970-something. How wrong I was………as that was Pampelonne, yep, Cap Camarat…….1978. This is about the Pamplemousses District in Mauritius, more specifically the north western-coastal village of Trou aux Biches, opposite a kids play-ground, Antonio's... More

We stayed at a little new hotel not far called Voile Bleue. The staff recommended us to try this place out. What a fantastic italian restaurant. Food was simply amazing. No menus. What you eat is what was caught by the fisherman the same day. Totally recommended!

The menu is proposed by the owner and changes daily. We both had clams in tomato/garlic sauce as starter followed by Seafood spaghetti for my wife and the catch of the day in musterd sauce for me. The starter was just amazing, main course just 1 notch down but still very good and very fresh products. All in we paid... More

Lovely setting, warm, friendly owner, spectacular food. One of the best meals I have ever had. So worth the expensive taxi ride to get there from the hotel.

No need for a menu. The lovely owner will spend a little time with you learning what you like, or explaining what she recommends, based on the catch and supplies of the day. No matter what, it is all wonderful. Lovely sitting outdoors. Indoors is not so nice, partly the office and workspace of the staff. [Note: TripAdvisor has the... More

Due to many good reviews here on Tripadvisor we tried this italian restaurant. We hadnt made a reservation but were very lucky to get the last table. Good job from the owner to tell you all about the dishes offered, he seems to do this job as soon as it comes to english speaking guests, his wife prefers the french... More

We came by this restaurant by chance really, we'd been walking along the beach and fancied a beer and as usual checked out the menu. Actually the menu was the owner telling us what she could be prepared. Grilled fish in a mustard sauce - great food. Couple of nice cool beers and we left very satisfied. Service was also... More
