“Superb food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

We visited this restaurant in April 2012 on the recommendation of a Mauritian friend. He recommended it for seafood.
We chose Mussels with cheese as our shared starter, followed by fish in creole sauce, and chicken curry with prawns. Quite simply all these dishes were absolutely delicious. With plenty of drinks the bill came to around 1750 MRU. We paid a similar amount for a very average meal at Cafe de la Plage in Grand Baie a few days earlier so considered this to be much better value.
This is a long-established family run restaurant so the service was friendly and personable. Even the toilets are up to Western European standard.
If you are in the Grand Baie/Pointe aux Cannoniers area, I would recommend this restaurant very highly.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2010

Excellent restaurant, friendly staff. The food is excellent, seafood (fish, crabs, squid...). Guests can see the kitchen (kitchen seperated wiht glass) and very clean. Unfortunately, the restaurant is difficult to see from the road. We needed a few days, that we found her. In short, super restaurant and the owners.
