We were staying at Sugar Beach Resort which included Citronella's Café in their all inclusive package both at lunch time and in the evening by reservations made at guest relations. The food was great at lunchtime and very relaxed with pizzas etc. The evening meal on the two occasions we visited was absolutely great with lots of choice and very... More

We stayed at Sugar Beach Resort for 7 days and had the privilege of having dinner at Citronella's Cafe. Got nothing bad to say. Service and food was excellent and the "on the beach vibe" was perfect!

We loved it here. There is such a great atmosphere in the place and the food is absolutely amazing. Perfect presentation and so much choice, whether a pizza, pasta or something more in keeping with the taste of Mauritius. We started with fabulous cocktails, sitting at the bar, watching the bar tender deftly mix whatever you asked for. We are... More

We were looking forward to having lunch at Citronella's today.But to how surprise, we received the worst service ever. We ordered drinks and thought we could just relax before placing our food order, however our very unfriendly waitress by the name of Jennifer pushed us to order our food....She really should not be working in a place were hospitality is...

Had lunch and dinner here several times. Food is good and drinks not too expensive. Great atmosphere, especially outside on the terrace with the stars. One thing that let it down this time however was the offhand service - someone else said unengaged and think they hit the nail on the head there. Could be more welcoming.

they have a slow service; however; the food was excellent and the quantities as well (except for the fish)- the pizza was also of a great quality.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Citronella's. Food was very well presented and waiters were polite and attentive. A nice change from the buffet meals at La Pirogue as although they are very good, this felt like being in a 'proper' restaurant. We will hopefully go again before the end of our holiday.

Good quality food in a quite nice location and building. Costs are high as within a resort, service a bit slow and un-engaged
