We went to this restaurant 2 times and it was perfect. You can get a main course for 350 rupees. If i ever come back to Mauritius i will go back!

After a really miserable experience with the owner some time ago I decided to give it a chance again - I was just curious how the food would be and after a long time on the island i was really craving good Italian food. Well, sorry to say but it was a real disappointment. The food was ok but surely... More

This place was recommended to us by the reception of our hotel Mon Choisy Beach Resort. It is a great little family owned Italian restaurant. Food was excellent and the service great. We loved the fresh tuna with the black pasta. Definitely recommended

We had eaten at 1974 for both lunch and dinner and each experience has been fantastic. One Saturday we booked for lunch the staff were very attentive and warm welcoming. The menu is described to you as it does change due to using fresh local produce, something which I enjoy. They can also mix and match the menu to suit... More

The food at 1974 is consistently delicious, and the specials are excellent - always worth considering. The owners are friendly, the service is good, and after several visits, we haven't been disappointed yet!

Owner & staff very nice... but that s all. Seafood place with no fish for main course, octopus burnt as starter and pasta with sea urchins & bottarga where there was no taste... all covered by cream. Again the Lady that runs it is very nice like the staff but if you prefer good food avoid it...

We went 2 nights in a row and would have dined there again had we continue to stay on that part of the island! There are many Italian restaurants and few are good, 1974 is exceptional. Superb and proper Italian food in a charming rustic and casual setting.

Never experienced such an arrogant, agressive and violent restaurant owner as in this crap place. A friend recommended this place, so we tried it. The staff was very friendly, I brought a bottle of own wine and asked friendly whether it is possible to bring your own wine and pay a cork fee. The staff kindly accepted and checked for... More

The appetizers were not amazing (they were a little cold when they arrived at the table) but the main courses were amazing. We had lamb shank (a special) and lasagna, and we loved both of them. I have read other reviews and I am shocked people have said it is overpriced. It is definitely reasonably priced, and even cheap considering... More
