We had to go back a second time, as the tuna carpaccio was so delicious. The only thing we were a little disappointed with was that the mussels were not fresh, but we should have checked this before we ordered. The local dishes are very tasty & the portions are generous. Although this restaurant is a little out of the... More

We have been visting the restaurant a couple of time during the past half year and it has been a great experience for us every time. The menu card is mainly for fish lovers ( also a few meat dishes) and we have special falled in love with the fishermans soup, as well as the Mussels in white wine sauce.... More

I used to come here regularly about 10years ago when they just started the biz. What caught my attention right away was the superb quality and taste of the food beside the service. Now that I came back to Mauritius 10 years later I decided to go back and I have been experiencing the same excellent quality. If you love... More

Located on Royal road opposite the turn off for the hotels - Baystone and 20 degrees sud. Lovely comfortable seats and made to feel very welcome. Menu is not very extensive and I think it was only fish and seafood for starters - don't recall seeing any meat to start (although on main menu) My husband wanted tiger prawn for... More

Coming from south he restaurant is right on Royal road before hitting the main strip of Grand Baie. Once again, it's not difficult to find but you have to keep your eyes open: they have a big sign and are located directly on the road. The dining is only outside, on a spacious patio. Atmosphere it's simple but very well... More

We visited this restaurant in April 2012 on the recommendation of a Mauritian friend. He recommended it for seafood. We chose Mussels with cheese as our shared starter, followed by fish in creole sauce, and chicken curry with prawns. Quite simply all these dishes were absolutely delicious. With plenty of drinks the bill came to around 1750 MRU. We paid... More
