The restaurants we visited all had a great local vibe going, a fairly wide range of freshly prepared dishes available and eating out is clearly something the locals love to do.

The restaurant provides local cuisine of outstanding quality, freshness and pricing. The athmosphere is very nice, the way its furbished is a nice mix of french brasserie and kreole island style. We have been there a couple of times, the swordfish is highly recommended!

We enjoyed the buffet with a range of local stews served buffet style in cast iron pots over an open fire. The food was tasty and plenty to eat. There was a salad and then main course in the standard buffet.

just a quick stroll to the sea in l'Ermitage so it is the perfect spot to discover creole traditional food yet the sucess of the place and the concept (18€ buffet for 5 carrys) are not worth the move: average taste, average service and cheap decor... our local palate may be expectful but I know local chef can be exceptional...

Not easy to tell what you are eating as all I french. Food is quickly turned around as the buffet is busy. Starters not worth the money so just do buffet.

Nice atmosphere in this buffet restaurant, great for sampling the main types of cari and rougails the island has to offer. For Reunion the price is cheap enough. Food is definitely good.
