Fantastic food and service

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... read 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

What can I say, the place is always full... for good reason! The menu is typical of a restaurant intent on serving only the freshest food to its customers. No ten page book here, just a blackboard with the right variety of dishes to choose from. It is always reassuring when a restaurant is busy and bustling with activity, as... More

We just stumbled over this place while driving around looking for a restaurant. It looked charming with its open terrace on the seaside, so we went in. Wow, what a good decision. The food was heavenly. All fresh ingredients and the best Italian flavours. We had bresaola stuffed with cheese, octopus with truffle, and large tuna steaks with mustard sauce... More

This is not your ordinary Italian restaurants where pasta and pizzas are served. There is no board/printed menu and the owners recite the list of dishes offered for the day (changes all the time ... chicken, beef, seafood, vegetarian...). If none pleases you, you can ask the owners to propose other dishes. They will always find something to cater to... More

We discovered this restaurant by chance whilst we were riding around on the bike exploring the island. Since we did not have a reservation, initially they placed us in the garden section which is though outdoor, right next to the kitchen so pretty warm. So we decided that we would come another day after making a reservation since the food... More

Hard to get into without a booking. Persaverance paid off. Giulia is a true professional. The food on offer varies dependent on the fresh produce. We went full Vegetarian and it was awesome. Great wine on offer as well. Overall one of the best experiences of our week in Mauritius. You must viist this palce - book first :)

The Italian here has to be the best on the island. The ingredients were fresh and the menu is adaptable and varied. The owners are very nice. It is expensive though, and the lack of a menu with prices can leave you with a hefty tab at the end of your meal. If you are looking to go out for... More
