First of all, the food is great ... i ve been staying in Reunion island for vacation and the food taste the same as it does there ! But what made me enjoy my meal even more is the staff there, they are really friendly and they know what they re talking about. They are passionate people who want to share their passion for creole food, and making their customer happy is their priority ! The restaurant is situated in an hotel and they allowed us to use the swimming pool and provides us towels for free, coming with smile aside :) The atmosphere is also great, with palm threes and a sauvage raccon family that live around and visit the restaurant mostly at night. We almost forgot that we where nearby the walking street area. One more thing, the value is good for what you get we planned to get a desert but we couldnt finish the main course ! my best experience in a restaurant for years ! thank you guys !

Hello,
I am sorry that your experience(experiment) to the restaurant was a disaster, simply you will remain one of an only one anybody who finds that dishes is lacking flavor. It is exactly the mixture of spices that makes the quality of our dishes. Can be spoke you some hot pepper? If it is what you wanted, he(it) is served to part because very hardly and if you wanted our waiters(servers) remained at your disposal in spite of the influx of this day.
So, we have actually a staff smoker and we their let us grant breaks cigarettes according to the movement and they are supposed verified whom nobody is in wait(expectation) before smoking. We shall watch it.
We thank you for your comment, we shall take note there for future.
Cordially.

The location is very pleasant in an outdoor courtyard off 5th.
We ate here a couple of nights ago and were disappointed, we expected better from a place with such a high rating, especially as we know Playa pretty well and can compare with others.
The food was ok but nothing special, we had a shared Reunion platter and then two mains, my wife was very disappointed by her shrimp.
There isn't a wine list but we were offered a choice of a few bottles of red, however it was served at street temperature (i.e. 30degrees), not really what I would expect from a restaurant with a French pedigree.

Hello,
I am sorry that your experience to the restaurant was not at the level of your wait. It is indeed about a restaurant of Creole cooking of the Reunion Island and not a French restaurant gourmet. You cannot compare this restaurant with the others to Playa Del Carmen knowing that it is the unique(only) restaurant from Réunion of Mexico. I can then understand that our fusion cuisine did not find success to you, we do not claim to be able to please everybody.
Thank you of your comment and invites you to discover our island so rich in flavor to can be changed opinion.
Cordially.
