Highly recommended !

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... read 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

This is a family owned restaurant and they mean business! They have no menus because the offer changes based on what produce they managed to get that day. The owner comes around telling you what they have and modifying the meals to suit your special wishes. Absolutely loved that concept and loved the food.

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends and did not disappoint. Firstly, there are no printed menus. The menu is created daily based on what fresh produce is available and purchased each day. The menu was explained to us by Guilia and was quite extensive including seafood, beef and a few vegetarian options. We opted for the Tuna salad with... More

There is no menu, as everything is fresh, the menu changes daily. The owner and his wife will come round and tell you what they have on offer. Simply the freshest, best tasting, authentic italian food on the whole island.
