We have eaten at plenty of restaurants and this one scales up above more than most of them! The service was excellent, food exceptional and whole evening beyond expectation! This is a bucket list restaurant, one you never want to cross off!!!

Most delicious fish curry! Melt in your mouth. Unbelievable flavours, very different from Indian and Thai curries. Listen to Gael's recommendations, he knows the menu inside out. Great service! Very special evening

If u want to experience a great taste of Mauritius in S.A this has definitely got to be the place. The atmosphere was spectacular and the food was beyond expectations. Highly recommended for a family visit. Keep up the exceptional quality!

If you want the most delicious French Creole Cuisine, with the most amazing wine selection and a wonderful intimate and comfortable atmosphere - this is the place !! Look no further!!

The attentive yet unintrusive waiting staff made this a pleasure. Superb choice of french and Mauritian food with a seafood focus. Crab gratin starter is as good as it was reviewed by others. Mauritian curry is delicious - maybe not too taxing on the tastebuds...More

We popped in for dinner on a Saturday evening during the school holiday season. We were lucky to grab the last table available. The wine list is pretty extensive. The cuisine is creole/Mauritian which makes for really interesting dishes.
