It was 14 years since our last visit and the food and service was as good as we remembered. This is one of the top places to eat in Umhlanga and the steaks were excellent. The service was also very friendly and helpful.

I felt that I was back in Paris as we started the evening with a Kir Royale (champagne with cassis) followed by a mixed starter consisting of a generous portion of wild oysters, mushroom au four, and crab gratin in the shell. The restaurant was full and the atmosphere alive with many French and English customers. The rest of the... More

In horrible, blustery weather we had a wonderful afternoon on the verandah of this restaurant still being able to enjoy the 'outdoors'. The owner and waitrons were attentive and charming, checking on us in a quiet way. As a lover of eating rabbit I usually hold my breath in case of disappointment - the flavours of the herbs with the... More

I had lunch here with my elderly parents while I was visiting them in South Africa. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and it was a very pleasant restaurant with a casual feel.

We chose Ile Maurice for an end of year small gathering of the girls and had a fabulous evening. The personal attention is always a treat and we try to have something different every time though the dessert is standard creme brulee for me every time! The fish daube was delicious and we all had an excellent meal. I can... More

We had a delightful evening at the restaurant. The view over the sea is stunning, the atmosphere quiet and inviting. The food was excellent and the staff go about their duties in a quiet orderly manner. Nothing is to much to ask. The owner demands a high standard of work ethics from his staff and his attention to detail is... More

A visit to Ile Maurice has to be our best treat ever. It has such a refined atmosphere with well trained waitrons who really know what they are doing. Our choice of food never disappoints us - always beautifully plated and yummy. Will go back again and again - well done to Christian and staff.

We have dined here several times over the years and think it is living on its reputation rather than present qualities. Three of us paid over £60 each for two courses and two bottles of lower priced wines. Our main courses were Kingclip fish which is sourced locally. Ripped off! We won't return and will spread the news.

RestaurantIleMaurice, Owner at Ile Maurice, responded to this review

Thank you for your negative comment but I think you forgot what you ate and drank and are exaggerating on the price paid. All had starters, the main course was a kingklip and langoustine combo ( langoustines ARE the most expensive shellfish available ) and all had Irish coffees and wine. Please may I bring to mind that we have... More

Fantastic service and fantastic food. There was nothing that could be better. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by front of house staff, to our excellent waiter, great wine list and superb food. Expensive but you pay for what you get-a great experience.
