When we booked the ladies lunch there was a slight mix up with the booking which was quickly sorted and they gave us a sparkling wine for our troubles. Been to L'Escale... More

When we saw this place we'd expected a very expensive dinner because of the fancy interior and exterior. However, we were surprised with the price and the very good quality of the food and the good service. If you want to have a romantic and quite dinner this is the place to be!

I have eaten at this hotel many times over the years but hadn't visited in a while. I heard that the interior had recently been renovated and as I had to come up to Port Louis anyway, I decided to take a friend there for tea.

L'Escale at the Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel is a perfect place in Port Louis if you want to have excellent food with a Mauritiian touch. We very go there for business lunches, with foreign visitors, as the Labourdonnais Hotel is really an iconic venue. It is very conveniently situated on the Waterfront, parking is safe and easy, you don't have to... More
