Last visited three years ago, came back twice this holiday. Service very efficient and helpful. Views out over the bay (probably best in daylight!). Not much else to say other than I'd be happy to go back again next time we are in Mauritius.

We spoilt ourselves coming here because let's face it it's for a casual evening out. We went big and had the platter for 2. It was sensational. Loved the setting and the service. Pricey but worthit!
