“Nice pit stop spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We have always popped in here for a coffee and a sit down after wandering round grand baie. It's a lovely spot with a great view of the boats. Prices are a little inflated cos of the location and don't include tax. Despite the segafredo coffee the cappuccino's are not quite how we like them

“OVER 100 VISITS to this Cafe/Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

I have to be honest, I have never had breakfast or dinner here, but I normally visit everyday during my stays in Mauritius, either for lunch or afternoon snacks and beers. The food I have enjoyed, has been first class, the dishes I have seen presented to other people has always looked extremely good.
The ice-creams and selection are out of this World and massive, they are so big that often 2 (3-4) people will share 1 portion, you can always order more later. I have a savoury palate and there is plenty of choice.

The location of Sunset Café/Restaurant has to be the best in Grand Baie, it has a panoramic view of the bay and all the boats. At approx. 3.30pm the Big Game Fishing Boats from Sportfisher, return from their days fishing. Just down some stone steps, you can view at close hand the fish and take photographs from the large very secure mooring jetty.
The staff at Sunset are Superb, just raise your arm/hand and they will be with you. Often if you are indulging in 2-3 beers, they will free of charge deliver some savoury tasters. A tip, do not order a litre of beer as it will get warm too quickly.
They have a happy hour, it used to be between 5-6pm but now it is 4-5pm, buy 1, get served 2, but the second comes later.
Anyone visiting Grand Baie must at least visit this establishment at least once.
Yes, it is a bit more expensive than a back street Café/Restaurant, but they do not have the views and the ambiance of Sunset.
I do not receive any special service or free/cheap drinks or food from this establishment.

“Great food in a lovely location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Warm welcome, excellent food and a lovely location overlooking the sea. Plenty of options on the menu made finding something nice easy.
We ate the prawns with palm heart salad. The prawns were perfect, the best this trip. We also enjoyed tuna and mayo baguette which also came with a nice salad, the tuna (as always in a baguette) was tinned, but the baguette was nice and warm, and crisp.
Service was very quick, and attentive from the moment we arrived. However with drinks the meal did cost over Rs1500, so was quite expensive.
Toilet was clean as we expect here, but why did they install hot air hand dryers in a small unventilated room? The toilets were extremely hot, and that really is our only criticism.
With its excellent location, and a cooling breeze right across we highly recommend it.

“Good food and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Over looking the bay which is beautiful.

Food was very good. Service was quicker than expected. Staff were friendly.

Value for money as portions were very big.

I saw a few ice cream deserts being served. Big enough for two!!

It is also cooled with cold mist spraying from the outside in.

Will be back.
