Good food, good service and prices not too bad either. The décor is beautiful, solid wooden tables and chairs. The waitron was charming and friendly and the meal was delicious.

We made a group booking for 8 people. Service was good and waiters attentive. Food was very good with a mixture of European and local dishes to choose from. Both were of good standard and presented well. A must visit for anyone, highly reccommended!

We had lunch here after a walk through Mahebourgh. Food was good, staff friendly and the location nice. Prices are comparable to other similar restaurants in the area.

Came here for dinner on a weekday evening. No one else in the restaurant but decided to eat here as the menu had a good few options. We ordered chicken skewers but they were not cooked fully so we had to send them back. No apology for this or even a gesture on the final bill. My other family members... More

We journed down the east coast of the island to see what it was like and by mid afternoon arrived in this quaint town,(it still has an open air laundry).

I ate twice here and I brought some friends along. They all had really great meals. I would recommend it anytime. Bring cash though, they don't accept credit cards.
