Found this restaurant by accident when we stopped in Mahebourg on our way to the airport. The food we had was absolutely delicious my husband had the boar and deer curry and I had the boar roast with mash both were excellent and we both had dessert which was just as nice. The restaurant is really well maintained the furniture... More

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). Anyway on the sea front we found this wonderful restaurant and had certainly the best meal we have enjoyed while here in Mauritius, try the heavenly seafood crepes for starters... More

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.

The food and service were good, but we were the only patrons present at the time. Nice location on the beach front.

Stopped here for lunch and we were both happy with our octopus curry. Very tasty and unexpectedly came with a lentil soup. View over the promenade and across the bay is very nice too.

Close by to the Mahebourg Waterfront, this little restaurant is amazing with a great view overlooking the bay, great food and good service. If you are in Mahebourg, do not miss this place though it might be slightly pricey but it is excellent. Definitely recommend it to anyone going for a trip in the south east of the island.

Really echo the comments others have made. Good but relatively pricey. We were there in the evening (dark and quiet in Mahebourg by 1900hrs in the early winter!) so couldn't appreciate the view but the food was tasty, the service good and friendly and there isn't much open here at this time of year; and a good vegetarian option (mushroom...

I ate dinner there, nice to find somewhere open in sleepy Mahebourg. No cerf available so I had the wild boar. Waitress was friendly and service was quick. Food was hot and plentiful, but a bit on the fatty side. Menu in French and English. Watch the prices as they don't include VAT. Probably better for lunch when you can... More
