“Homely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Loved the food albeit I was not brave enough to try the cane rat curry - which is actually a type of porcupine! Loved the garlic bread, very, very different. Very good value and lovely friendly hosts.

“Definitely not extinct!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A quaint little old run down house converted to an intimate cosy little restaurant. The menu is surprisingly different, maybe more than a little French Mauritian in flavour but certainly with fresh local ingredients.

“Unpretentious, ntimate restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

From the outside, what looks like a shack is, in fact a quaint restaurant with interesting decor. Wide cuisine influenced by Mauritian Chef. Husband and wife team. Reasonable value wines

“Good food, friendly service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Small restaurant keen to please with good food. Happy to cater for children. We had lunch on a Sunday when it was supposed to be closed, but they opened to serve us.
