“Average restaurant near a beautiful place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

We lunch in this restaurant after see the chamarel falls and the seven colors. It was a choice from our driver. The quality of the food was OK and the service was very good. The place is kind of basic but clean and fresh.

“Expensive proposition”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

This place is preferred by most drivers, the reason is obvious

Pros
- Near to Tourist places

Cons
- Extremely expensive option, this will set you back by 100$ for 2 (lunch)
- Average quality food ( Saffron rice was nothing but turmeric masquerading as saffron)

there are far better places nearby. try avoiding the suggestions of the drivers.

“Nice food at a cost”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is a popular stop if you travel with taxi or tour group en route to Chamarel. I strongly suspect that the drivers get some form of incentives for bringing tourists here.

The restaurant serves good local cuisine and we enjoyed our food very much. We had fish vindaloo (made with Dorado or Mahi Mahi fish) and some form of chicken tikka. The only downside is the price.

The rice and dish main course meals cost on average MUR600 (US$19.70) per person. For the same price (or lower at MUR350 to MUR550), you can get a rice and king prawn meal in some higher end restaurants on the island. Similar type of fish and chicken meal would probably cost under MUR200 elsewhere.

“Excellent take on italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Try the slow cooked seafood pasta on foil. It is nice fresh and crunchy seafood the way it should be. Actually the restuarant outdid its sister restaurants
