Simple very hot cold dishes followed by rice and different currys of sausages, pork, fish and chicken. All very hot hanging over open fire but really quite tasteless, Quite a bit disappointed

An extremely wide range of "carry", excellent value for money. Not a fancy restaurant but good if you're feeling hungry.

The restaurants we visited all had a great local vibe going, a fairly wide range of freshly prepared dishes available and eating out is clearly something the locals love to do.

The restaurant provides local cuisine of outstanding quality, freshness and pricing. The athmosphere is very nice, the way its furbished is a nice mix of french brasserie and kreole island style. We have been there a couple of times, the swordfish is highly recommended!
