The management could do with some more marketing and an uplift in the ambience. The chef is clearly buddy with some star... read more

A "funny" place to eat dinner. Imagine a bar with live music and dance transformed into a place where you can eat. They have done ok and the food is ok too. We had burgers for finner and the size is fine...do are the prises.

Do not wait if you are in Tamarin bay, they offer very good food till late night and with a club and disco and a dance floor for music lovers. Very nice place amongs friends and family. You should really try their steak and grill menu, very tasty ! Best one in Black River.

Me & my husband went here on a Thurs evening during our stay in Mauritius. It was very quiet and only a few people there. We tried the Willy's cocktail, which was very nice and light - not sickly like some cocktails. The menu was very limited if you don't like beef/steak and only two chicken dishes. We both enjoyed...

Good for a night out on the town. Loved the buzz. The venue is open and allows one to enjoy the balmy evenings. The music was really good and the service, fast and friendly. A good place to relax with the locals and ex-pats.

Excellent live band though a little bit loud to have a conversation. Service is good and the place has a nice atmosphere to meet up with friends and have a drink. It also has a restaurant, dancing floor and karaoke on Wednesdays.
