Considering that this restaurant is highly praised, even by Prince Edward, I was disappointed with the level of service. Finding bird poop on my fork did not auger well for a great experience. Our sparkling water was served hot and when we asked for ice we were told it had run out, only to see diners at another table being given cold drinks. We were part of a group and had ordered prior to arrival. Our meals were served promptly and were reasonable, however, nothing to rave about. Our guide requested more bread for the table which was brought but it's unfortunate that he had to ask. This restaurant is expensive and in our opinion, did not live up to its reputation. BUT The views certainly did!

I was wondering why so many tourist buses stop there.From the car park you have to go down quite a few stepsThe place look great,nice and cosy.All wooden structures.The view also is great.The food was so and so.And the price not so and so.Coming for the view and have a drink and then go down hill to chamarel.

On our way to the Seven Colored Earths in Mauritius we stopped for half an hour for a short rest and had a great time on Creole coffee and coconut ice cream and marveled at the views from the mountain to the sea. Recommended!

On the more expensive side for food (thanks Brexit) but well worth it. Very tasty Mauritian currys. What a view!

Went as part of a day trip and stopped here for lunch. Food was great but go for the views alone and you won't be disappointed. Staff were very attentive too. While we were there we watched a man propose to his partner on the helipad next to restaurant. Very, very romantic!! After lunch we walked down through the lush gardens. Such a lovely spot. Would be happy to go back there again.
