“Fantastic view and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was in every way a high point of our trip. Try and book a table on the verandah, otherwise the view becomes irrelevant! Whilst you take all that in, don't forget that you also came for the food, which is excellent. Together with attentive but not obsequious service and the ever-present Mauritian smiles this should be a great experience.

“Beautiful setting and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Boasting a fantastic view, the restaurant could easily have been an over-priced affair that charged for the ambiance and didn't offer good food or service. Thankfully, Le Chamarel turned out to be a beautiful experience. I'm glad we booked ahead and ensured an outdoors table, because that really is an important part of the charm.

As for food and service - the European style service is a little slow, but hey, you're there to relax and soak up the experience, so stop looking impatiently around! The sommelier recommended a perfect wine, which was very reasonably priced (even if we converted to Indian Rupees) for a restaurant. The food was attractively displayed, and tasty. Desserts were good too.

Tips: It's only open for lunch; book ahead for an outside table; go on a clear day to enjoy sweeping views of the sea, and set aside at least 2 hours for the meal.

“It is a pretty good place to dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I was there pretty much for the view and was prepared to eat so so food and that place exceeded my expectation. Food was good...at least my ordered food were good. Service was good and attentive too. Prices weren't cheap but considering the atmosphere and quality of food and service, I would definitely come back again.

“Very Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Bit of a treck to get there, but once there, the view is so worth the effort! As soon as you walk in, you cannot miss the view that is absolutely breath-taking! You'll want to take endless pictures.
The food is also very good which a satisfactory selection of local cuisine/delights. The staff is ever so friendly and attentive making you feel well looked after.
