Recently visited for the first time and had a lovely meal reminding me of home cooking in Mauritius! Also enjoyed taking home some delicious gateaux piment and my favourite cakes - napolitaines! Lovely place to eat and nice friendly service.

Disclaimer: I am Mauritian and I hadn't eaten gateaux piments etc in a while, so I am biased. But everything was excellent: baja, gateaux piments, dholl pouris, samoosa, briyani, alouda, chutney pomme d'amour, chutney coco etc. Small restaurant, friendly staff.

Le Chamarel is a cafe not a restaurant. We went for lunch on Sunday being the 49th Independence Day of Mauritius and there were no celebrations at all. The place is very small and we were seated to a small where we could hardly fit...More
