“Excellent reflection of Mauritius”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Driving by we noticed so many people inside so we tried this place and were positively surprised. On the menu the diversity of Mauritius, sea food, indian cuisine and chinese dishes mauritian style, the local curries of course and for the kids or simply cause you're craving some homey food, things like chicken with fries. All of it affordable and for what we ordered of really good quality. I had sauteed octopus as a starter and it was one of the most tender and tastiest I ever had. Enjoyed all of it so much I was too full to have the ananas flambée I had been eyeing for dessert ;-) Service also so nice, we definitely recommend.

“Best Seafood Place I have found so far”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The restaurant has charm and a warm friendly atmosphere. Chez Ram, the owner is very personable. I had a fish called Capitan and it was amazing, all fish is caught locally and prepared the same day, you cannot get fresher than that. Will definitely add this place to my favorites. They also have some very good and reasonably priced wines on offer.

“Friendly staff”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Decided to try this restaurant after driving past it looking for somewhere to eat in the evening...

The father and son that run the place are very friendly creating a great atmosphere. Food is fairly simple well cooked food; the smoked marlin salad is delicious!

Would definitely return.
