Le Dodo is a small restaurant with a basic menu at affordable prices. We were served by the owner, who explained each item on the menu to help us decide. Nice pizza and fish (dorado). The cocktails were not bad either!

We were hungry and not many places were open at that time. We strolled in to Le Dodo not sure what to expect. This small family run restaurant is on a busy road and there were only a few more dining guests. The menu looked interesting, we ordered a couple of local fish specialties. It seemed we waited for the... More

This is a small family run business providing great food freshly cooked for you. Nice presentation sets off a well cooked meal providing great flavor, balance, variety and individuality in each dish (4 of us eat here). This is a small restaurant that may feel a little basic from its appearance a bit like a street seller with a roof,... More

We arrived on a Sunday and after a full day of looking around and getting the feel of the place, we wanted to eat close to where we were staying. Most of the restaurants were at 8pm! But we found this little gem. The place was full. The waiter was very friendly & efficient. As it was our first night,... More

Having already visited both selfish (see my review) and also Esprit Libre (also reviewed), my wife and I decided to visit Le Dodo. It was like the Dodo, "dead", and we wondered if this was a sign of things to come. However, we were so wrong. We were greeted warmly by the owner who brought us the menu and cocktail... More

Luckily this restaurant was open again when we were in Mauritius this year, Gyslaine, the proprietor, greeted us as old friends with a kiss on each cheek. Mind you we have been eating here since 1996! Her Crab Gratin is superb, followed by steaks cooked to our own personal taste, After dinner she provided us with some local rum liqueur... More

This restaurant looks very nice so my partner and I were keen to visit. We arrived and took a seat and waited to be served. And we waited. And we waited. Nobody turned up to take our order! After a while we gave up and walked to another restaurant nearby. who showed a little more interest. Who knows what the... More

I have eaten in this restaurant every two years since 1996 and was very disappointed to find that it was not open during my most recent visit in November 2011. I have always enjoyed the steaks there and the owner, Gislaine (I may have spelt this wrong) is always extremely welcoming, recognising us immediately when we return. I sincerely hope... More
