Tried the buffet part of the restaurant. Food is well prepared, although a bit pricy. Unfortunately, no variety, the same food was on offer for the 3 days that we went there

The ground floor offers fixed menu, which is average. However, the first floor a la carte food is very good, the location is ideal, very central, behind the Government House. It offers veg options too, also has some indian cuisine, if you are craving for it, though , on the bland side to cater to the locals

La Bonne Marmite is a sure bet if you want good Mauritian/Indian cuisine in a nice setting with professional waiting staff looking after you in the heart of Port Louis. It also offers good catering services for business office meetings if booked in advance. Always among my top picks and never disappointed.
