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

My friends and I had a very nice meal last night. The food was great but the service was even better. Our waiter, Arvind, was attentive, friendly and efficient. On both counts we will be back to enjoy dinner!

Our company was looking for good food. And this is the right place to go. We couldn't find better place around. The service at very good level! The food is very good. Different kinds of steaks. Not very expensive. 5 people, with starters, second courses, wine, coffee - we paid about 9000 rps.( about 300$). It worth it.

This is the more simple restaurant from the Labourdonnais but maybe simple is the wrong word! You are not going to get a coffee shop style of menu but a true a la carte one. Vast choice, refined dishes, good service, great wine list, what more could one ask for?! Breakfast there is also very good with a vast selection... More
