I enjoy finding hidden gems This place was great, we ordered the seafood platter for 2 which was 3000 MUR and it included lobster, mussels, prawns, Dorado and rice. It was very nice. The lobster was cooked for a tad too long but it was great none the less. Definitely give the planters punch a go if you enjoy alcoholic... More

Ate here after a recommendation from our Mauritian bartender at our hotel. Shrimp and Chicken curry was awesome, cheap and the waiter was fun and friendly. Good place to eat dinner while watching everyone pass by on the street

Our second trip to Mauritius, but first time eating there. Saw this place being crowded, so called in for reservation the next day. Service was very slow in the beginning, but when order was finally taken the dishes came out. Extremely good local dishes, good servings and so tasty. Finally we had arrived in Mauritius. Would go there again definitely.... More
