On 31 Oct, 2022 my kind driver guide suggested a coffee break stop at Wapalapam Island Eatery in Le Morne, Mauritius. When I arrived, there were few guests, but a number of tables left, which had not been cleaned or set up for the next...guests. I admit, I should have left immediately, the atmosphere was peculiar, and by no means did I feel welcome. On the contrary. Two male staff in the bar were very busy with their phones. One passed me and when I asked if I could sit at one of the tables, he pointed me to a bar type place outside, which was on the side, where he walked up and down to serve two tables. He made NO effort to clean a table for me, and after 9 minutes I had to ask for a menu card despite two men still using their phones regardless of momentary eye contact. I asked the waiter about a dessert or cake, and he rather annoyed showed me a photo in a book, I ordered cake and a cappuchino. The cake arrived after another 7 minutes, but this time no one else needed any service, I waited….. On occasion the waiters looked at me from the bar, and eventually they made the cappuccino, this was after I asked for my bill. When the cappuccino arrived, I paid and left – both drink and cake behind. It is the rudest – most arrogant – unkind service, or lack of, I should say. The ignorance and unkind looks is crazy. If you do not want guests, if you are between lunch and dinner and need time, you say so? Why this place has a 2022 TripAdvisor Choice…. Must be because they are in a place with few or no choices bar the cafés at the 5* hotels in the area. I have spent 4 weeks on Mauritius so far, this year, I was also here last year. It is the first – and hopefully last encounter with rude Mauritians, whom I have come to know as very generous, kind, interested and hardworking happy people. SHAME on YOU guys!More

Great friendly restaurant. Stopped off for drinks when cycling by then cane back for a late lunch. All good ordered was tasty, well flavoured and plentiful. Would definitely eat here again if it wasn’t our last day

Papaya salad was way too sweet. Sauce in the tofu dish was way too peppery. And the beer was flat, clearly from an already-opened bottle. Service was barely mediocre. My wife's fish was said to be fresh but seemed frozen because it was so dry.

Very bad experience. My partner ordered a pasta with cream but it came out like pasta with water. And also the bartender was so rude to us maybe because we were local. Service 2/10. Food: 1.5/10. Cocktail; I asked for alcohol one but guess they...didn’t even put a sip.More

pasta with cream eats only kids or culinary truckdrivers, sorry to say but properly you are not right for or unique successful restaurant chain. Go and cook yourself your pasta with cream

The food is amazing. The taste of the fish and prawns were spectacular. We ordered two different currys and I recommend to try them. 10 out of 10!!

For that price you might as well go to a resort restaurant and enjoy a nice view or go to a more local restaurant have better food and save some money. Seriously overpriced. Rum cocktails are delicious though, so a good option for drinks.

During 2nd trip to Mauritius, decided to stop one night in the Capital and ate at wapalapam following reviews on tripadvisor. Did it live upto expectations…. Yes defo. I travel a lot and tend to avoid seafood and certain other meats due to the obvious...reasons but here it felt safe and we had the octopus starter and seafood noodle soup. Both were fantastic. The staff were knowledgeable and helped with queries on the menu. It’s also a bar you could have a drink at, and suitably placed 10 mins from the waterfront and 5 mins from central market. Would I go back again…… defo 👍😃More

Wapalapam came recommended by our host in Le Morne and it's definitely some of the best food we've had on the island. The restaurant has a great laid back vibe, with both an indoor and outdoor space and it serves fresh food (mostly fish I...believe) with an interesting twist. Pretty large portions..!More
