    by bijo69 Updated Apr 13, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Colombe has some great Chinese and Creole dishes. There are lots of seafood dishes on the menue, but Vegetarians like myself do find somethings aswell.
    Service was prompt and prices are very reasonable.
    They have live music on Saturdays.

    The Hidden Reef: A Hidden Gem

    by Vickster Written Sep 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It might look like it's on a main road, but this restaurant feels like it's off the beaten track. Sit inside or out and have a refreshing drink at the al-fresco bar before enjoying a superbly cooked meal in an extremely relaxed atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Crab au gratin to start followed by fresh lobster.

    Port Louis market: Tasty and cheap

    by AndreSTGT Updated Jun 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many upmarket restaurants on the island, but eating there will blow your budget and is not really worth it since the food you get on the market is great and dirt cheap. Try the various Indian snacks like samosas and spicy roti and wash it down with a glass of delicious alouda.

    I tried the 15 € fish curry in an upmarket restaurant, but it was not even half as tasty as the snacks on the market.

    Twin's garden, Flic en Flac.: Excellent Friday night.

    by pfsmalo Written Feb 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went to this restaurant a couple of Fridays, as this night there is a laid out buffet plus at 21h00 there is a dance/musical show included in the price. The restaurant is owned and run by two French twin brothers, one overlooking the cuisine and the other the main bar and table service. The food is quite remarkable and plenty of it, and as it is a buffet those that are more than peckish can go back for more. Entrée and hors d'oeuvres plus the dessert on one side of the food area and the main dishes on another side. It is better to reserve a table. Drinks must be ordered from a waiter that comes around or you can order anything on the menu if you don't fancy the buffet as you can do the rest of the week.

    Price for the buffet is 600 roupies (15€) per person plus VAT and the drinks are not included. Beer starts at around 100 roupies (2.5€) inc VAT.

    The web-site given below is , unfortunately, only in French.

    Favorite Dish: The entrées are very much "nouvelle cuisine" with plenty of different spices, plus the grilled Marlin is really delicious (save some room for a couple of pieces).

    View of restaurant and bar areas. Bandstand and some of the dancers.

    Cafe De La Plage: Sega Dancers & Dinner on the Water

    by Donna_in_India Updated Jun 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located on the waterfront in Grand Baie. Get a table overlooking the beach, have a dodo cocktail and some fish and watch a performance of Sega dancing.

    Sega dancing is very soulful and sexy with a lot of hip movement. Only the brightest and most colourful costumes are good enough to dance the Sega. The skirts are long, ruffled and cut very wide to allow for the spinning movements. Dating back to the 18th century when conditions of work for the African slaves were miserable, slaves would numb their unhappiness drinking arrack (from sugarcane), sing and dance the night away to the rhythmic beats of the séga. Instruments accompanying the dance are the guitar, triangle, and ravanne.

    Cafe De La Plage is a nice, relaxing setting. You can also stop in for a drink and snack while enjoying life on the water going by.

    Seeing a performance of Sega dancing is a must see in Mauritius!

    Baguettes, Baguettes, Baguettes!

    by Donna_in_India Updated Jun 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stop at a superstore (i.e. Jumbo) and head to the bakery. If you arrive just before dinnertime you will see a dozen locals lined up waiting for the fresh, hot baguettes. They are wonderful!! Buy two because you'll eat one before you make it to the check out counter. Pick up some cheese, jams, cold meats and have a delicious dinner. These were our best meals in Mauritius. (Pick up some chocolate croissants for breakfast, too.)

    Spur: An old Friend

    by cleocat Written Jul 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can't believe the amazement on the kids faces when they saw their beloved Spur in Grand Baie.
    I don't know how well Spur is presented in the rest of the world but in SA nearly every town has a Spur. It is a very child friendly restaurant with good food. Nothing exotic. The basic hamburgers, fish, steaks, salads etc.

    Favorite Dish: Spare ribs are always good. Comes with chips and my favourite the onion rings.
    They also have a variety of big flame grilled hamburgers with chips and onion rings.

    My all time favourite is the onion rings, their spinach(part of the salad spread) and the devil's fork(fork with mushrooms in a great marinate - grilled) .

    Must say the prices in Grand Baie was double what we normally pay in SA. Definitely aimed at the tourists.

    Jack's Pub: Best Food of the Island

    by iammon Written Apr 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our most favorite Restaurant on the island was Jack's Pub in Trou d'eau Douce. It is along the main road to the Le Touesrok Sun Hotel. It does not look like much from the outside. Except that they show off a big menu. But when you actually want to order something of it, they do not have anything. That's how it works: You just get whatever the family eats for dinner and that is just the best! If they know that you will come back the next evening you can choose the main ingredient (fish, chicken). The owner (Mr Dave) is such a nice person.

    Favorite Dish: The real local food.

    All food outlets: Even McDonalds caters for vegetarians!

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Sep 26, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have to confess that it's not often I'd resort to photographing a McDonald's sign, but in this case, it proves a point: a country where McDonalds expressly advertises the fact that it offers non-meat options has to be vegetarian-friendly! [For the record, 'McAloo tikki' is a spicy potato concoction, and the debate about whether standard McDonald's burgers contain anything that could be classified as 'real meat' can be pursed in another forum!]

    Mauritius was uninhabited when the first sellers arrives in the 1600s, and today's population is dominantly of Indian heritage as the descendents of slaves who were imported to man the sugar plantations. Because of that cultural background, many Mauritians are vegetarian, and thus local restaurants are familiar with catering for those who don't eat meat.

    As Indians form one of the dominant - and rapidly increasing - tourist groups to Mauritius, the hotels are also geared up to cater for vegetarians. Buffet-style catering in most resorts make it easy to pick and choose items that are compatible with your dietary preference. Unsurprisingly, given Mauritius' island setting, pescatorians will find plenty of fish-based options, and also there should be plenty of options for strict vegetarians and vegans (many of which are likely to be Indian-inspired).

    Black River Gorges National Park: Some truly excellent picnicking sites

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Sep 26, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perhaps the most underrated part of Mauritius is the Black River Gorges National Park, which is an ideal day's outing from virtually anywhere on the island.

    One of the attractions of this region is that on a densely settled island, there isn't much in the way of towns or villages in this area: thus, if you're planning to visit, you'd be well advised to come armed with a picnic. If you're on an all inclusive deal at a hotel resort, then they will pack you a picnic free of charge - alternatively just pick up something en route (bearing in mind that only the larger towns will have supermarkets).

    We were particularly impressed by the work that had been undertaken to provide good picnic sites in this park. The one in the main picture is adjacent to the new Visitor's Centre at Pétrin, whilst the other - set amid an atmospheric grove of trees - is just by the gorgeous Alexandra Falls.

    LE TANDOOR, FINEST INDIAN CUISINE AND GRILL: MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN MAURITIUS

    by labaronesa Written Jan 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really enjoyed going to this restaurant. Thanks to our driver (Oodaye) he tooks us there. I don't particular like too much Indian food because it is extremely very spicy for me, when they say is a bit spicy it means a lot to me, but this time here in this restaurant I had the option and really the food was delicious. I really liked it. We almost ate at this restaurant every night. We ate early dinner around 6 pm. Later on it gets very busy and you have to do a line to get in. The tandoor chicken was good and tasty they cooked the chicken in a special cook they had by the tables and the smell is more tempty and you get actually more hungry when you smell the chicken.

    This is the outside of the restaurant The grill where the tandoor chicken is cooked
