“Awful service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

I was so encouraged by the reviews, made a booking and went to The Beach Shack. Our experience was awful. Took 30 minutes to get a waiter, 20 minutes to order, 40 minutes to receive the wrong food, and we could not get the bill at the end. One of the few times I've ever considered not paying. Food was good but cannot make up for the awful service.

“A New Year to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We'd stopped earlier in the holiday for drinks and loved the vibe. After the disappointing Christmas Eve, we hurried up and booked at The Beach Shack. What a super decision. A 9 course memorable meal. The attention to detail, the music, the service and obviously the food. I know why they're no 3 in the whole of Mauritius. Their regular menu is also great.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We came to the Beach Shack a few times during our stay in Mauritius. The food is fantastic, seafood, beef, burgers...all top quality. The staff is friendly and very welcoming, the location perfect, just by the beach and the sunsets.....well you'll have to experience that.

“Wonderful Large Steaks and Superb Seafood.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We spent 17 days in Flic en Flac in September 2013, visited the Beach Shack for most of our evening meals, glad we found it at the start of the holiday, the food is extremely good as is the service and polite staff, cannot fault anything about this restaurant, everything you hope will be ok is superb, they deserve to do well. The decor is simple, clean and chic and has obviously been designed by a professional, We felt very comfortable in our surroundings. The chef is excellent, from the flavour of the food to the quantity and presentation. Well done.x

“Customer loyalty.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

The Beach Shack restaurent earned a loyal customer.
I might say that limit myself to go there only once, was like refusing to taste hapiness when u have the chance to taste it numerous times.
Welcoming staff, put me and my family at ease and accompany us through quality services the second i put my feet in and till the second i left the restaurent, i even left with friends from there.
