We were invited by friends for dinner at this place. At first we were dreading the long drive in the rainy weather to the restaurant in the North of the island but once we reached there, we were so happy to be there. It is...located in a nice spot by the beach with a nice ambiance. The food was heavenly - one of the best seafood restaurants I've been to. From the scallops, king prawns, lobster to fish etc, we enjoyed every bit of the food. The chef's suggestion for the wine to pair with the food was also excellent. A place not to be missed!More

The restaurant has a nice sea view and the overall atmosphere is pleasant. The food and service was excellent. The waiter was discreet, but always available when needed. The fish curry was well prepared and tasty. The canard confit was just as good. All in...all, we really enjoyed the visit.More

Huge seafood platter for 2 from Le Capitaine - Sensual Seafood Experience composed with Lobsters🦞, crayfish, 🦐giant prawns, scampi 🍤 , oysters 🦪, calamari 🦑, crabs🦀, fish 🐟 and some carrots🥕 and peas. Starters tartare of fresh tuna and pan fried scallops. Just thinking about...it makes me drool 🤤 If you really wanna have the seafood experience in Mauritius, Le Capitaine is the place. Fresh products, experienced waiters, simple yet nice location by the beach. It is pricey, but that’s what we pay for in Mauritius for fresh seafood so i totally recommend it.More

I would ask people to consider Le Capitaine instead of Ocean Basket. Better taste, well seasoned food and good variety of seafood. The staff were friendly and we were offered two desserts for free. The prices are lower since Mauritius is in lockdown. Also superb...view of the sea to make it a better experience.More

Came here with three friends, a great evening out if you’re looking for a nice seafood dinner in Mauritius. Our waiter, Kumar, was so helpful! We had the seafood platter and it was delicious, great lobster, prawns, mussels and the calamari was so tender.

We didn’t make a reservation but were given a table for two with a lovely sea view. There is a good extensive cocktail list, the house cocktail was amazing, if you like a kick (it had a dash of Tabasco) it is well worth a...try. We ordered the crab gratin which was outstanding, the dorado in banana leaf which was very delicately done and seafood pasta which was the best of the lot. A combination of local cuisine and fine dining. Like most places in Grand Baie best to get a taxi or drive as the pavements in the area are a bit haphazard.More
