Eureka is an old creole house that requires more maintenance. The antiques are really nice. I think much much more needs to be done to restore the 'maison' and it's history.

Wonderful diversion to visit old man le Clezios house in Moka. Great feeling of the true past in this refined yet shabby colonial home. Long back lawn and path down to the falls. Dont miss them. Great experience.

A good quality mean with Mauritian authenticity in a calm, relaxed setting overlooking beautiful grounds. Go back in time with a visit around the house which retains its old colonial charm. Good service, good food in beautiful setting.

We visited when the restaurant and house were booked for a private function; therefore, we were unable to have lunch there. Had a look around the house and gardens only. It's a lovely house. Reasonably well-preserved. Very peaceful. You need to go on a small...More
