Really lovely family run restaurant. The dad catches the fish every day, the mother cooks and the son runs the front of house. Lovely food, very fairly priced and a great spot to eat it you are staying in the north of the island. The son in particular is very friendly - make sure you ask to try the prune... More

As others have mentions this is sorta a trap laid by the staff and taxi drivers. AVOID. the food is terribly priced and bland. Service was fine and even friendly but this is certainly a trap. Watch OUT!

We believe drivers are approached to take their tourists to this restaurant. Be vigilant to redirect your driver if they take you here. It is extremely expensive with prices you'd expect to pay at a classy restaurant and the food served to us was bland (old chips, watery curry etc). It would have been less offensive if the prices weren't... More

From the outside looks like a hole in the wall and the Outside seating is nothing special. This place is frequented by locals, especially taxi drivers... I have been there already several times and the friendly waiter - guess the son of the owner - always recognizes me & greets me with a great smile. I always order the same,... More

The food was very tasty with fresh fish and seafood (the owner is a fisherman). The service was excellent with a very friendly and entertaining host who made our dining experience of the mauritian cuisine even nicer. The price is reasonable. Was just a bit disappointed with the Ti-punch which was lacking rum!

Overly expensive and overrated, we regret having followed a taxi driver's recommendation. Same prices as in expensive European countries, in fact, you eat better for less somewhere else.

Sad, we paid about double from what we have been used to when traveling Mauritius for several weeks. Prices like in Switzerland. Food was ok, but we needed to ask two, three times for ordered but forgotten items, such simple as beer, bread, or the salad that was ordered. Salad nicoise was just a pile of tuna on leaf lettuce...

This restaurant was recommended by friends who are locals and really lived up to its reputation. It serves food in the more traditional style which I guess is Creole. Apparently the owner is a fisherman and we benefited from his day at work. Fresh fish grilled over a charcoal fire is really delicious and this restaurant was no exception to... More
