Excellent evening, charascuria was fantastic, marred a little on service obviously due to Euro football! Well France did do quite well after all.

Slightly quirky but very very good vegetarian Indian food. Not that spicy but we are used to much hotter stuff but this caters for French tastes and all was fine when they brought the spicy pickles.
The flavours are nicely complimentary and the service is very good and friendly. A lot of the ingredients are home grown and all are bio. Even the wines and beers. No coffee but an infusion from Kerala was nice if a bit different. Well worth a visit. Price was modest.

Living in France, one of the few things one misses from the UK is a good Indian restaurant, so when on holiday in the Ile D'Oleron we thought that a vegetarian Indian restaurant would make a nice change from all the (very lovely) seafood restaurants.

Maha Prana is a pleasant villa style restaurant where it is nice to eat 'al fresco' on a summer's evening. But the food was disappointing - we chose a set thali type menu with a choice of starters, main courses and puds. I guess the cooking was tailored to French tastes where Indian restaurants are few and far between and anyone who has enjoyed Indian vegetarian 'street food' type cafes back in the UK may be sadly disappointed.

On the whole the food was bland but there was one gem - amongst the starters there was a clear tomato and coriander soup which was deliciously subtle. The desserts were Middle Eastern rather than Indian and not particularly pleasant. Later in the evening we were entertained by an elderly but seemingly genuine Indian dancer. A nice touch but not worth a detour. Limited wine selection is well priced.

This is a vegetarian restaurant which uses homegrown/made products. We sat outside on the veranda and had a wonderful meal watching the sunset. This is a place that you have to visit because of the thoughtful way the food is prepared and the gentle welcome that you will be given.
