We were lucky enough to get a table after not being accommodated an inside table at the original restaurant we booked at. The food was excellent quality. The bread starters were fresh and crispy. The price was a bit steep when compared to other restaurants in the area example the creme brûlée was about R97. I would also suggest the... More

What an incredible evening! The food was world class! From the friendly, helpful hostess to a personal visit by the owner and executive chef - what service! We will definitely be back! Well done Ile Maurice!

Had family visiting and decided to go to Ile Maurice and as usual was so impressed. We had the crab au gratin to start and is without doubt still the best crab you will eat anywhere. Thanks to the staff for the awesome attention to detail and service and can't wait to go back to devour the creme brulee

A remarkable way to see in 2017. The service and the food was superb. The oysters to die for! And the starter and the main - superior. And then I would be amiss if I do not laud the mango and chili with ice-cream. What should be congratulated is the consistently good food and service I experience every time I'm... More

I ordered the crayfish tails with bechamel sauce thinking it was a kind of thermidor. I got the four tiniest crayfish tails with literally a horrible bechamel sauce chucked on top. There wasn't enough meat to make a thermidor with. I complained so I got a "free" crayfish tail with no sauce - it was tasteless and rubbery. This cost... More

Bingo and thank you for not disappointing us too. I would normally have this unreasonable complaint contested but I want to reply to this. Yes, the tails were small and yes crayfish is expensive. A béchamel sauce is not a thermidor so it would be difficult to please and satisfy anyone with these expectations. Regarding the price, and after witnessing... More

Hey Mike, are you sure you have the right establishment with regards to the lighting and glassware ? We have specially selected crystal wine glasses as we proud ourselves on a wine list that is made of unusual and not easily available wines. And that does have a price for sure and the right glassware to match. A little unfair... More

If you want ketchup on the table, go to the Oyster Box or MacDonalds, if you want oysters go to Beverly Hills Southern Sun, if you want fine wining and dining, you can't do better than Ile Maurice restaurant.
