We stayed there one night before heading to Mahambo. The bungalows were very functional and somehow clean but in an average state. They do require some maintenance in order to renovate the bungalows. The food was good!

By far the best price value ratio in the capital village of sainte marie: spacious wooden bangalow, new mattress, clean and fresh sheets, big bathroom with hot water, several electricity outlets, decent resto and in walking distance to everything in the village. Highly recommended.

Great food, generous portions, very decent prices. It's a lovely environment with lots of fruit trees on the premises. The fruit juices are outstanding and were easily the best value for money that i found. All that i ate there was delicious and the owner Benoit, was always welcoming and very gracious. Looking forward to going back again!!!

We popped into this place during a recent stay Ile Ste Marie. It was a hot day, we were thirsty and it was early afternoon so most places had shut down for their 2hr lunch break. This was one of the few places that was still open, so we paid a visit. Bad mistake. There was a very peculiar atmosphere.... More

I at the restaurant with my husband and mother, we ordered drinks and two plate of frites (chips). The waitress had a real attitude and came with just one plate and literally plunked on the table the plate and cutlery with a bad attitude. I would not recommend this place if you want a genuine and friendly service. The toilets... More

Our guide suggested we have lunch at La Bigorne on our way home from an excursion on Ile Ste-Marie. We ate outside on the terrasse and were happily surprised with the quality of food we found in this small restaurant off main street.
