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

Having read the reviews on here we Seidel to give Souvenir a try and were so glad we did. The food was amazing, the service top notch and the atmosphere great. The menu was extensive and so much to choose from, we had the reverse bowl which was delicious and the noodles and the calamari curry which was unbelievable. Will... More

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

We moved to Mauritius in January and this has become a favourite "easy" weekly dining experience. Every time we drive past Souvenir Restaurant which is situated on the corner opposite the Trou Aux Biches Police Station it is busy with both tourists and locals choosing to dine there for both lunch and dinner. The food is good and reasonably priced.... More

A number of French guests at our hotel, the Casuarina, recommended the Souvenir as an excellent change from the food in the hotel. So we tried it and were pleased we had reserved a table for our evening meal, as it was full. We had a starter and a main, which was possibly a mistake as the portions were gargantuan.... More
