Having read the reviews we were prepared for an experience but our expectations were surpassed to a degree I wouldn't have imagined was possible. The setting...it is an old sugar mill covered from top to bottom with the owner's mothers artwork. The mill is huge and airy; we were... More

First off the food/wine and everything else you would expect from a restaurant is amazing. What will make this place live long in your memory is the level of service and the atmosphere of the place. You feel like your eating in someone's private home/gallery. My wife and I had an incredible night and couldn't think of one good reason... More

If you are on Mauritius do not miss Le Cafe des Arts. We have eaten in more than a few Michelin starred restaurants and this place tops them all. Incredible atmosphere is topped by fabulous food. The owner takes a little getting used to, but he is a really interesting, very well traveled, and very rich man. By the end... More
