Excellent service! Great location - can walk from beach to the restaurant! Excellent local dishes packed with flavor. We tried the beef creole, octopus creole and veg Chop suey and loved it! Best of all - they make an excellent coco rum. Highly recommend this place.

Surprisingly good. I gave it five stars because it felt so authentic. Food was worth the rating, service was a little lacking (they forgot the serviettes), but they did give us a bowl of fresh made hot chilli sauce. Get any of the Creole sauces from the menu they are a great complete meal not just a sauce, food picture.

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel, Ocean Beauty, and it was a wise tip. The owner/waiter, Rakesh Lebenitier, made the evening memorable, with a personal touch. His warm friendly smile and good service made this little restaurant a hit. The food was very good and not expensive by Mauritian standards. Highly recommended

Great food and welcoming staff food freshly prepared and adults get a free shot of house rum. The waiting staff were patient and took time to explain the menu and recommend the best menu.

The staff was very friendly and supportive. The cook was a catastrophe. The starter - a fish pot pourri - was cold, and no taste. The main dish should have been a grilled fish. It was over grilled, and served with the wrong sauce. The one thing was was really good, was the self-made thyme rum. In one sentence, good... More
