We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and really glad that we came out of the Trou Aux Biches resort. The food was food, really good value and the service was good. Cheap and cheerful but worth the trek in the dark road with dodgy street lights.

We were searching for a cheap, decent lunch venue and found this (after a local recommendation) on a crossroads just by the public entrance to Trou Aux Biches beach. A good choice of freshly cooked dishes (especially fish) and a third of the price you pay in the local hotels. Worth the walk.

This is a decent, no-frills restaurant frequented my Mauritian locals. The food is delicious and generous in portion. It's not a particularly fancy place, but still well worth a visit as it's clean, tidy & has quite a good buzzy atmosphere. Strong, deliciouys cocktails too!

Great restaurant in the area and it is definitely a lot cheaper than the surrounding "Fancy" restaurants We had the Lamb curry, it was nice. Needed a bit more chilli to complete the dish. Also had the Shrimp and chicken curry. I find the Chicken in Mauritius to be a lot different tasting to the chicken in SA. Different is... More

Very tasty dish of prawns in a creole sauce. Service was good, certainly by Mauritian standards, and the meals and drinks well priced.

Read the reviews, thought I've got to try this place. Yes it's on a busy junction, so in the evening it's quieter. The service was good and the food outstanding. Choice on the menu was also amazing, local caught fish and seafood and fillet steak which were all amazing. Would I go back, already reserved a table!

While waiting to check into a nearby hotel, we decided to drop in at Souvenir for lunch. And we were not disappointed: a good Bol renverse and a plate of noodles were exactly what we needed. This is a great place for lunch and a much better alternative than those fast food outlets on the public beach. Drop in for... More
