This is a five star dining experience. The staff are friendly and even though I am a wine novice the wine sommelier helped us choose the best wine without belittling us. The food was divine and my steak was cooked as I had asked. Lovely atmosphere with great silver service.Book early or you will be disappointed as there is limited... More

The most up market of the restaurants at the resort. Place to go if you like your wine and a nice ambiance. If staying at hotel book this early as it gets sold out.

My husband and I visited the Blue Penny Cafe a number of times during our stay in Mauritius during Easter 2016. In terms of food and service, it really is an exceptional restaurant. We were not actually staying at the Constance Belle Mare resort but we were treated with great courtesy by all the hotel and restaurant staff. In particular... More

Wow. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful 25th Wedding Anniversary meal here. The food is excellent and the fish was really outstanding. This is Michelin star quality food. The wine pairings were interesting and presented by a sommelier with excellent knowledge. Service is great and the staff respond well to the level of formality you expect.

We’d a dinner at this perfect place. Nothing to complaint about. Service was just as it must be. We’d a delicious lamb which was just “melting” in the mouth. Wine list is very good. Worth to visit for sure.

We ate here once during our stay at the Constance Belle Mare Plage. I preferred both the Deer Hunter and La Spiaggia to this restaurant but it is still a very pleasant dining experience. The food was very nice, my beef filler was a particular highlight; perfectly cooked with great flavour and tasty accompaniments. The service was quite formal but... More

The hotel has a beautiful beach, setup, rooms and has a wide range of activities. The Blue Penny Café is a must-try during your stay. Amuse-bouches assortment was tasty and nicely presented. Interesting bread selection and would be nice to have a plain brown bread as well. Very good discreet service from polite staff including a knowledgeable Sommelier which is... More

The Blue Penny Café inside the Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel was closed in 2012 when we were in Mauritus last time. This time it was open and we went there with our Hotel “half-board” voucher. The food was superb and the recommended wine matched perfectly.
