Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful seaview with a pleasant vibe. The chairs however look old with the fabric gone musty and mouldy, making you hesitant to sit. The food was good and well presented, but hugely overpriced! The prices are what you would pay on a trendy restaurant in...London and Dubai, but definitely most people wouldn't pay that kind of price in a coastal village restaurant in Mauritius. If you're not prepared for this, you might have to skip the starters and dessert, and settle only for a main course like we did! Given that Grand Baie has several sea view restaurants with more value-for-money good food, I think this will be a one-off experience for us.More

We didn’t appreciate either the food or the service. Very expensive but did’nt taste very much. Not what you expect for that price. Poor service as well. Not very nice and quite a long wait. The location was nice, that was the only positive thing....Don’t recommend this restaurant.More

Prices on Website completely misleading. Prices as of 29 Dec 2023 at the Restaurant are 3 x what’s on their website Despite having made a Reservation, the Table was not Cleared, the Table was not setup (No Cutlery, No Napkins & No Glasses) Bread 🥖...delivered on Table with No Side Plates. When Side plates were finally brought, some were actually saucers & some were not clean. Rolls brought were burnt /Charred Out of 6 Dishes, Only 2 were OK - the rest were terrible Location is Good, and probably Great during the day. The Live band was really amateurish The Bill, without even alcoholic drinks was excessive, for the type of service. The manager tried to talk things out, and seemed to understand that this was just a terrible service - but didn’t do much about it. Will never set foot in this Restaurant Eric - Tourist (Family of 6)More

This is the most overpriced restaurant in Mauritius. It costs as much as a Gordon Ramsey resto in UK, yet the food is just plain seafood with nothing truly special. The quality is ok, the food is ok, but the price is just ridiculous. There...are a 100 places in the same vincinity that serve better food for half the price. The desserts are not fresh though. We had to return our tiramisu because we refused to pay Rs 650 for a tiramisu that's not even fresh. Go there only if you have money to waste.More

We ordered as a started salad with olives from the menu and we received it without olives, no dressing, just plain leaves with tomatoes a a few cubes of cheese. The service is not very good. After that we waited 1h more for the main...course. The menu doesn’t have many choices. The cocktails are bad. I wanted some coconut water and they don’t even serve that in full season when the island is full of coconuts… I’d not recommend the place to be honest…More

Food was just WOW... we came across this place while driving around Grand Baie. If you are in search of fresh seafood in the north, this is the place to go to. Nice and welcoming staff and we had lunch with sea view.

We came here for our wedding anniversary meal. The restaurant is right by the sea and this is lit up at night. Lovely food, mostly fish, but there are vegetarian options. Great service as well.

Pretty average food that was very expensive. Nothing to complain about but given the cost I’d expect better. Not going to rush back.

The restaurant was fortunately not too busy when we arrived. The grilled "bobone" fish fillet with its special topping was excellent. My mother loved the "gratin palmiste". We were served by Kumar who was very courteous and accommodating with respect to my mother's special needs.
