“A touch of class”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

As we always do when visiting Mauritius, we have a meal at Le Capitaine. We love their chicken and prawn curry with delicious Indian rice, the creme brulee and their freshly baked bread rolls. But its also the good service and relaxed ambience with a lovely view over the bay that draws us back each time. We also enjoy the father and son band over weekends and always leave feeling pampered and well fed. See you next time for sure!

“Delicious food, but pricey and can't help but wondering whether we were ripped off!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Ate here for lunch and it was quite quiet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the service was great and the food very tasty. Standard menu items were reasonably priced but it was the items that were sold by weight that really pushed the price up. We had a glass of wine each, a bottle of water, catch of the day fish, 3 king prawns and a lobster ravioli starter and the bill came to in excess of £90. We thought it was steep at the time but on the return to the hotel we looked at the bill more closely and the two items sold by weight were incredibly expensive. My fresh fish was apparently more than 1.5kg which I find hard to believe and cost over £40. The 3 prawns were large but surely couldn't have been the 1.2kg we were charged for and over £30 price tag. My regret is that I did not ask them to confirm the weight before I committed myself to the order as I now suspect something underhand here but I can't confirm this. My advice would certainly be to check the weight and cost first so there is no arguments. I wanted to rate this restaurant higher but I can't shake off that feeling we taken for a ride!

“Great food, service and setting”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We've dined here twice; once for lunch and once for dinner and both times the food, drinks and service were fantastic. The crab is a bit messy but that's half the fun!

“Excellent service, great food and what a beautiful setting!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We had our wedding dinner at Le Capitaine with our 65 wedding guests. All of us were impressed with not only the tasty seafood dishes but also the excellent service. Having provided the restaurant with everyone's menu choices a week before the event, the waiting staff were able to set the right dish in front of right person. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great... I enjoyed the sautéed prawns and banana flambé for dessert. Many enjoyed the fish fillet in banana leaf or the calamari for main course and chocolate fondant for dessert. We look forward to our next trip to Mauritius and another visit to this great restaurant.
