The food was all very tasty and the service was exceptional. A great way to experience French/Mauritian food with a good view of the ocean. The food was however much more expensive that in the surrounding restaurants.

I have been exceptionally lucky to have dined in some of the best restaurants around the world and, again, exceptionally lucky to have one of them in my home town of Umhlanga! Ile Maurice is without doubt a class act and Christian, the owner, can be very proud! On Saturday, 15 April 2017, my wife and I had our special... More

The authentic Mauritian French cuisine experience is what makes Ile Maurice Restaurant so special. Sourcing best quality ingredients is critical to patron Christian Lenferna de la Motte and this is confirmed in the dishes we sampled.

After an absence of a few years we joined friends for an evening at Ile maurice. The starters, especially the oysters and the crab were outstanding. The Vindaye Poisson also of a very high standard with the barracuda nice and firm. In my opinion a bit over priced but it is fine dining in a great spot.

There isn't a place I have been to in Umhlanga that could rival the completeness of Ile Maurice! Professional service, awesome menu, great ambience, super fine dining! Probably my best dining experience to spoil one-self. There may be better in Umhlanga Durban, this is my pick though!
