Good for sampling the local cuisine

Had lunch and dinner here a couple of times over the last week. It was usually very busy but somehow the ever so helpful staff would always come up with a table within reasonable time. The menu has mostly local dishes, curries etc, kind of no-frills but really good and to moderate prices. The only... read more

Went there for lunch. Drinks arrived right after the order while for food we had to wait more than hour and a half and, despite having asked twice, nobody cared. We then asked for the bill that arrived including also food. We were very upset and left. Looking other comments, seems this is not unusual. Unacceptable: we will never be... More

Had dinner here several times and the service is excellent. One of the few restaurants that actually tries to get you a table even though they're fully booked. Very decent prices and good local food. Drinks are not too bad either! Try the Ti Punch :)

Went there for lunch Drinks were brought right away. We spent the next 45 minutes fighting the swarm of flies while waiting for our food. Other guests who arrived long after we had were served. I spoke to our waiter who told us our food was coming. It never did. After waiting another 20 minutes I told our waiter that... More

I visited Souvenir for a quick take away the evening my family arrived in Mauritius. The restaurant was busy, full of diners and drinkers. The food took about 15-20 minutes to be ready and I was on my way. The food wasn't gourmet by any means but satisfied our need for a quick bite after a long flight. We enjoyed... More

Superb food at a reasonable price. The expansive menu ensures there is some thing that will suite the tastes of everyone. The informal relaxed atmosphere and attentive service added to a great night out with the family. Whilst located on a fairly busy intersection, it adds to a lively and real Mauritian experience. It's rare that my kids insist that... More

Superb food. Good price, 400rs for 4 huge prawns curry with veggies.. Most main meals around this price which is superb value for money. Quality food. Waiters lack concentration ! Forgot take my order and brought drink saying name of another. Overall, great place to eat.

This restaurant just keeps getting better. Unfortunately it is situated at the very busy crossroads to Trou aux Biches, Triolet, on the main coastal road. The traffic and esoecially buses roar past only 5 metres from your table. But then, this is Mauritius. The restaurant is small, very popular and a favourite bar and meeting olace. If you want dinner,... More
