“Best”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We tried diffrent places to eat every day. Some of our meals were horrible and very expensive. This one was the best.

The owner was a lovely lady serving us with so much pride and joy! Food was very tasty!

“A diamond in the rough”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We left it far too late to visit this restaurant for the first time as it was the day before our return home. However, we did just have time to have the best lunch that we've had in Mauritius. Don't get me wrong we've had some good meals in Mauritius but this restaurant is pristine clean and air conditioned and everything is served with care and pride. Delicious food with nice little touches. I've called it 'diamond in the rough' as it's at the end of a fairly uninspiring road but don't let that put you off. Would highly recommend.

“Couldn't ask for more”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We went there tonight to check it out for our wedding dinner. It lived up to all expectations and more. Superb service, amazing food (I let the chef choose my main course) and although they were waiting on a wine delivery they still had a great selection. The crab wontons (aumunieres - probably spelled that wrong) were fantastic. You run out of superlatives for the food in here which is what its all about. By working on the decor the owners could raise this restaurant from brilliant to world class.

“Hats off!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Considering this restaurant is ranked #1, we just had to try it out. Since its shut for lunch and only open for dinner (till July 15 - end of the low season), we visited it on a windy and rainy evening. Its best to reserve on the phone beforehand as its quite a small restaurant, with not more than 20 covers. The ambience is quite nice - warm and cosy, and the service is quite good. We tried the crab meat in wonton-type purses, a shrimp curry with saffron rice and grilled fish filet with sweet potato in chutney paste and fried potatoes. The food was excellent and good value for money. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate fondant and a gratin a l'orange. The gratin was basically a frozen orange dessert with a burnt top - it was excellent! All in all, a very good recommendation!
