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.
In front of the curch of Cap Malheureux, Le coin de Mire, invites you to have a wonderful seafood dish.
Local creool food is served.
Make sure to have your lunch or dinner on the second floor. It ensures you of a beautiful view on the sea.
Don Camillo, in Grand Bay, is an italian restaurant in a beautiful setting.
The terrace outside, overlooks the bay and in the evenings, the wind from the Indian Ocean refreshes your mind and body
Favorite Dish: All dishes are excellent.
Try the pizza and the seafood.
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.
In this Cafeteria you get delicious seafood and also chinese and local food at very very good prices. Stay away from the big hotel restaurants or from that tourist restaurants in Grand Baie !!
Favorite Dish: Don`t miss the salad with smoked marlin !!!!!
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.
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!
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.)
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).
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.
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.
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.
They serve excellent desserts and seafood. It is the best cosy restaurant in Mahebourg; everybody knows it.
Favorite Dish: It is very conveniently located near the airport, fitting for having dinner your last night in the island.
J have tried many of what the locals consider the best restaurant in Trou aux Biches, and have to say this is really offering superb quality fresh fish and meat dishes.
A very peaceful corner, beachfront terrace, no noisy, the right place for having dinner after a day in the beach.
People is very kind and the owner is available for pick-up and return at Yr place if You dont have a car.
reccomended to couples, very romantic.
Favorite Dish: Everything is accurately prepared on the moment.
So delicious...try according to Yr taste...J personally had fish all the times.
It's not a restaurant. Rather it's a food stand / stall. Under most circumstances, I wouldn't dare to try food from a food stand (I'm psychotically obsessed about hygiene when it comes to food). But there was this insanely long line of people, patiently queuing up to buy faritas (similar to roti prata / naan / pita / the 'pockets' kebabs usually come in). So we tried one.. and another .. and another. Yummilicious. And it's cheap. Stuffing: curry (is it dhal curry?), lettuce, bits of meat if you're lucky.
