Lucky enough to visit this restaurant on the one night of the week they are open we were treated to a richly indulgent feast in the heart of St Louis. Far surpassing our expectations, the service was attentive, relaxing, perfect and the food was cooked to perfection. Our table was treated to an amuse bouche each and home-cooked bread in... More

What an absolute treat. Not open many evenings, so ring first, but we got lucky. Service impeccable, food beautifully prepared, cooked and presented, atmosphere just what you want for an unassuming but spot-on French restaurant. Coped so well - with good humour - with our dietary challenges. Lovely little extra touches (amuse-bouche, confectionery) just elevated everything. And the staff cannot... More

Lunch with friends and colleagues in Mauritius does not get a lot better than this little restaurant tucked away just round the corner from Le Maurcien newspaper offices. Used by the local businessmen and women rather than the ubiquitous tourist trade on this wonderful island. Service was discreet, the food outstanding and a decent wine list. My pasta was perfect...

The tuna is cooked on point and a great choice if you are hungry (good portion). The white SA Le Bouquet goes well with any fish.

In a little alley in the middle of town is The Courtyard serving fine French cuisine. Like everywhere on the island the staff are amazing and happy to help even when it comes to making a plan for the kids. My scallops and duck magret were perfect. We sat outside in the courtyard by the fountain.

This restaurant is amazing and the staff are exceptional. Be sure to taste the home made rum! We are foodies and this food is on par with the best we have experienced.
