Walking down from the summit of Castle Hill toward the Old Port, we had one thing on our agenda — food. We had been on the go since mid-morning and it was already approaching 3 p.m. without lunch. So we stopped at Le Kaloupile, the...More

We really enjoyed the degustation menu. The food was very fresh and the tastes were different than what you can try around. Most apetizers were spicy, but the mains were not, the spicy sauces were served separately. I never thought that the shark can be...More

This is a lovely little place. Inside it is like an explosion in a kitch factory! That said it is charming. The food is authentic, not big portions and not really budget fare. That said you get shark and other delights. Their sausages are spicy...More

Some good flavours here with dishes of meat and fish stews in mini casserole pots served with mango chilli salsas and rice. There's a superb young waiter who rather shows up the grumpy owner. All I asked was whether he could recommend something not too...More

I went to this restaurant for a work-related dinner with a group of 8 people. What a surprise! Every table was taken. Enjoyed everything I tasted, the decor was different and unexpected. The waiter was knowledgable, friendly - but not intrusive. The chef checked in...More
