We tried the octopus and calamari rice dishes. The meals were very tasty and well-priced. Our server was polite, friendly and expedient for our needs.

We have eaten in this restaurant several times. It is a small family run place. Food is good and cheap. It is a plain place but clean and tidy. Ideal for lunch.

We had a very good diner at Le Papayou (or la Banane Créole,as it seems to be the new name of this restaurant). The only, small, critic that could be made about this place is that the service is maybe a little bit slow (it took a little bit more than 45mins to get our dishes) but it didn't really... More

I'd read good reviews about this small restaurant, but we left disappointed. Service was very slow eventhough there was only us and another guest there. The food was without any taste.

This is a small restaurant with average ambience. But the food was quite tasty and service was also nice. Creole pizza and le papayou dessert were delicious. Their coconut shake is damn good.

Le papayou is a small unpretentious resto which should definitely make some more noise! They serve very tasty food from a varied menu! I have tried many dishes over the years and I can safely say it is all very yummy. My favourite is to have a magic bowl to take away, rush home and dig in whilst it's still... More

One world to describe the food..EXCELLENT!!!!! My husband and I ordered a mine renversé and an octopus vindaye. The waiter was alone and he also had to do the cooking. He mastered the dishes! BRAVO!! I would recommend this snack to anyone who wants cheap good food.
