We were just passing through Grande-Bourg on other business, but saw this restaurant which looked tempting from the outside and looked spectacular on the inside with a whole jungle growing in there. It was actually a few minutes before they officially opened, but they very nicely rushed around a bit on our behalf and seated us anyway. All the of... More

Maria Galanda is an absolutely lovely dining experience. The restaurant is owned and run by a French husband and wife team, each of whom work hard to treat their patrons to top service and a good meal. The dining room is set in a garden, surrounded by stone walls. The menu was varied - and though our first courses were... More

My girlfriend and I had a great meal here. The place looks very basic from the outside, but it beautiful inside. It's built into an extremely old stone building. The waitstaff was very accommodating, and helped us understand (we speak very little French). The whole meal was great. The drinks as well. The only thing I could improve would be... More

The food is great, the service is good, the ambience is on par with the small island. I used to eat here often with my visitors who enjoyed the food. I am nostalgic now to visit again for their great sea food.

We stumble on the restaurant at the lunch time in the middle of low season when all others were closed. I am glad we decided to ride our bikes down the road the restaurant was. The owner was very pleasant and for a small price of the lunch we did not expect much. What a surprise! We had the best... More

The restaurant, located right downtown Grand-Bourg, has a beautifully decorated entrance. We were there a weekday evening and the restaurant was about half full. The setting is quite nice in a partially covered courtyard with tables around a small pond with live turtles. The service by a friendly waitress was timely and excellent . We had the seafood bouillabaisse and... More

Enjoyed dinner served in a delightful courtyard with tree frogs chirping in the background. “Le Menu” fixed price meal at $19 euros was a good value with a big bowl of tasty fish broth as an appetizer, a large portion of grilled tuna with potato casserole and banana crumble for dessert. The gentlemen in the group enjoyed the langouste -... More
