A nice pause in a middle of nowhere

we were dicovering this part of the island and decide to stop in that little café. We did try the fish cooked on stone and it was very good. The waitress (which I guess is the owner) was very nice and plaisant, she explain you how to proceed with the stone. We'll go again without any hesitations... read more

Good atmosphere, quick service and good food. You have a choice of fresh filleted fish and/or meat and/or prawns served in a bamboo tray with a plate of rice and salad. A hot granite plate is then placed at your table with garlic and saffron butter for a "cook it yourself" leisurely meal. Creole sauce and fresh chillies are also... More

You cook your fresh fish on the stone on your table. And when your order the dessert you have a crepes with ice cream and fresh local fruit or jam that is wonderful. Be carefull to book to be sure you will be accepted for dinner.

I went to this place after my friend recommended it to me. The area is beautiful (make sure to go to Anse soleil 5 minutes away by car) and enjoy a mixed platter ( seafood and meat were very fresh). Good food good price and original concept (last time I saw people cooking on the stone was in Mallorca 12... More

We stayed at Kempinski and Maria's Rock Cafe was one of the few restaurants/cafes in the vicinity of the hotel. For me, personally, it was unique experience to prepare yourself raw fish on baking hot stone. We visited Maria's rock cafe in the evening, so I must admit lack of illumination and bats flying all around makes it a bit... More

The restaurant has nice pirates ambient and is perfect for couples and families to get away from the campus resorts. The value price ratio is very good. You will cook by yourself on a hot stone and if you are there for the first time the waitress will help you kindly.
