The restaurant was fortunately not too busy when we arrived. The grilled "bobone" fish fillet with its special topping was excellent. My mother loved the "gratin palmiste". We were served by Kumar who was very courteous and accommodating with respect to my mother's special needs.

Me and my mum had a lovely meal here overlooking the sea. Great service and even a bit of parking which is a scarcity in Mauritius!

The view is good, Food was delicious. A few things on the menu are unavailable (which we would have probably chosen). The promise of a 10% discount while not life-changing - when offered you expect it to be honored. There were 3 of us we...spent MUR6800. This is our second visit and will most certainly be our last. There are far better placesMore

Food, atmosphere and service are amazing! By far the best meal we have had in Mairitius. Had the crab curry and the lobster among other dishes - food was great. A lovely experience even before we arrived. Kumar, the restaurant manager is welcoming, friendly and...very service oriented and all waiters were lovely. Highly recommend.More

Asked our taxi driver where can we have some fresh crab, he immediately pointed out that the best for seafood is Captain restaurant. I checked over some reviews and was doubtful whether to go or not. We say let's check, the place looks nice, I...went to check the menu and asked for crab, the guy told us that they have deep sea crab cooked to our taste. As a crab lover and having missed it as restaurants here mostly sell lobster and fish. He proposed us to try the baked crab as starter and the crab curry as main course. My partner had the lamb which tender. It's not cheap but as a crab lover I had a lovely crab experience. Service was a little slow but it's I will surely come back on my next business trip just for the crab.More

Visited this semi hidden gem in Grande Baie on 13 Jan 2023 after stumbling upon it online. We could not even speak as we munched on and gobbled down every bit of this delicious lunch. Service was perfect, food was sublime and our drinks hit...the spot. Nothing like that in SA. Loved every moment. Definitely going back just for this beautiful meal again. Do try them when you are in Grande BaieMore

Great, fast and very polite service. We had dorado and it was very well prepared. The cocktails are good and not expensive. We sat beautifully and had the sea view. The live music was pleasant and not so loud.

Thanks Captain team for the treat. Except to the long wait to get a table, we really enjoyed our evening at le Capitaine. The slow service didn't affect us as the food was so nice specially the baboon fish and the restaurant was full. Anyway...we are on holidays, everywhere in Mauritius all going slow.More

The outside impression of the restaurant is not justified by the menu and the service . The prices are like in Europe but you are not getting the same quality of the food and the same quality of the service. The dessert was good, the...rest was disappointing.More
