Well where to start the food was simply amazing as was the service. The sound of the waves gently crashing against the beach was very pleasing. However be ready to open your wallets if you are going there. It is by no means a cheap place. Not even close.

Service was excellent Vishel was very attentive. The food was slightly disappointing with the catch of the day being over cooked, some unusual dishes though including a sea urchin salad which was average, and the location was not quite what we expected overlooking the car park in front of the beach.

I read the reviews and our hotel manager supported our choice as the best sea food restaurant locally . We booked for the evening and were pleased to be given one of several tables directly overlooking the bay. Most of these were taken by the end of the evening but it was by no means full. We enjoyed the chefs... More

Dinner, drinks, appetizers, and desserts for three ran a little shy of $200 USD. Top notch food and service that went so far as to ask if we wanted more of individual parts of the dishes.

What a treat! The food is amazing! From start to finish, there is absolutely nothing that can be criticised on their menu. Service is on par with the quality of the food - top notch, speedy and very courteous. But there's nothing as a free meal - all of this comes with a price, a very steep one indeed...

With my first taste of the food I’d ordered I knew that this was going to be special. We were on an island tour; I had selected this restaurant for many reasons not least because we’d tried to eat at its (no longer truly existing) sister restaurant in Port Louis last year but it was closed. We were seated overlooking... More

The restaurant view is amazing. The food was "just ok" nothing to rave about. I felt it was overpriced for the quality. Could be the off season. Didnt really enjoy it much.
