I have a severe allergy to dairy. I went today for breakfast and informed the lady of my allergies and asked her 3 x to confirm if there was any dairy in the breakfast menu. She looked blankly at me and each time said that...there was no milk in the food. I ordered the classic fry-up. I ate breakfast and left. But very soon afterwards I was very sick. All the classic symptoms of my dairy allergy. Either it was the bread or the chicken sausage which contained milk, but I was VERY ILL. Extremlely poor Enba Filao. Luckily I survived the episode but for those who have allergies AVOID this place, as you will get SICK.More

It's an excellent place to chill out and enjoy some delicious seafood! Staffs are helpful but the best part is the setting. You are literally having lunch by the beach while enjoying some grills,

This restaurant is right on the beach, next to the Lux LeMorne. We stayed at the JW Marriott (on the other side of the Lux LeMorne. This place has great lunch food at half the price of the luxury resorts. If you're staying a the...Lux or the JW Marriott, walk over to enjoy the food.More

My husband and I went for lunch at Emba filao for the first time and it was a wonderful experience. Tasty food and good customer service. Beautiful view of the ocean. Value for money!

I went solo for lunch twice this week and was really impressed by this place. Casual vibe on the public beach and closest restaurant to the kite surfing beach (without rolling into one of the gate resorts..). Grilled dorado fillet was excellent, smoked marlin salad...was very good and chicken panini was average (limited filling but price point is low so you get what you pay for on this one.) They will only start taking lunch orders at 11:45 am. Recently started doing dinner on Friday evening - I expect it will be a popular choice! Will go back for sure.More

Good options to choose from, I would skip the shrimp though to messy for a meal on the beach and portions are small.

We had lunch with good salad and fish plates. Don't let the long queue to order discourage you: it moves fast and after you get your drinks you receive a table number and waiters will bring food to you. Nice tables on the beach, and...in the shadow. Rs 1000 for 1 salad, 1 squid sauteed with rise and salad, 1 prawns with fries and salad and 2 cokes. Happy about everything :)More

It is a nice place for lunch.They serve dishes like grilled camarons with fries, fish curry with rice , paninis , grilled fish. Very friendly and clean place. I would recommend this place to anyone going around this area for good and quick service. You...have seating areas that are covered in case the weather is not in your favour or tables on the sand with a seaview. Give it a try :)More

Went here on Election Day when most other eateries were closed. Good value to be honest, queue to order but waiter/waitress service to table by the beach. Food was quite basic but good value. Burger and panini with fries with drinks was about £10 -...excellent value!More

By the beach breakfast. Extremely pleasant, not very elaborate menu but provides good quantity and standards. Using plastic cups for sift drinks and water is a bit off setting.

The place is nice, Just in front of the beach. Unfortunately the service is pretty bad, most of the food was not available and they closed before the indicated closing hour even if there were people ready to order. Disappointing.

En Bas Filao has a lovely selection of food and is a great little place on the public beach of Le Morne. Don't bother to pack lunch or dinner and go here instead with options ranging from Smoked Marlin salad, Fried rice and even Lobster!
