“OFFERS VERY GOOD SAMPLING OF LOCAL FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

If you have limited time in Mauritius and don't want to spend a fortune at the big hotels, eating at La Bonne Marmite offers a reasonably priced alternative to the best of Mauritian cuisine. Over the years (I visit Mauritius about once every 18 months on average), this restaurant has featured tasty venison, curries of meat and fish, delicious rougaille. The atmoshere is relaxed and the clientele varies from the top politicians, captains of industry to the middle-level civil servant and shopkeeper. Locals and tourists meet.

“A friendly lunch in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

My friends went to lunch on a week days. The welcome was very warm. Friendly staff. The settings was perfect. The buffet menu was exquis and even get dessert for Rs 511 per pax including a soft drink. Very nice and the atmosphere is very cozy for a city lunch.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is a very pleasant restaurant, clean with attentive service. The food was good, without being outstanding. I would classify it as reliable, no disappointments but average.
Once agins my acid test: would I go there again? Certainly for a business or post-shopping lunch, no if I wanted anything special.
