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.

I had booked a table for New Years Eve via WhatsApp but on arrival was informed that they didn’t have my booking. Having showen staff the WhatsApp correspondence I was told that they would need to telephone the manager. We were then allocated a table...however I was summonsed to see the manager when he arrrived to show him my booking details which he read and then walked off. I asked the waiter what was happening and he directed me to our table. The food itself was good but the place lacked any NYE atmosphere and I was very put out by how I was treated on my first night in Mauritius!More

I wish I were 20 years younger and been at that place at 22h instead of 19h - a very groovy and nice place. The food was good - went there after the crabcakes and coconut praws which were both quite good, shared a steak...for main course. Again made a promise to learn how to make crab cakes myself.More

We found this place by chance and had we found it sooner during our holiday, we would have visited a second time. The location is not far from the centre of Grand Baie and the Grill is situated at the back of the bar area...which is accessed from the main road. We enjoyed coconut shrimp and crab cakes as starters and camarons (large prawns - we hadn't heard of them before however they were excellent) and steak as main courses. The food was excellent and the service was super friendly and efficient. The bar area was busy with people enjoying cocktails and the restaurant soon filled up so maybe we were lucky to have secured a table without a prior reservation. Please don't be put off by the side entrance which is on the forecourt of a petrol station as the food was really good, the staff were excellent and the inside of the restaurant is super clean and comfortable with a great atmosphere. Recommended.More

Delicious food, beautifully presented, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We really relished our meal at the banana grill. The live music was great but not invasive - sitting at the end of the restaurant we could have a good conversation. The waiters and waitresses were attentive,...friendly and professional. I can't wait to go back. Particularly to enjoy the Blue Note bar that is planned at the back of the restaurant.More

“Excellent authentic cuisine” “snappy service” Waiter (Ayush and other waiters) excelled in their duties making sure our glasses were kept full and orders were in at all times. Coconut prawns is a must as a starter, the combination of crispiness and spices displayed in a...coconut was a delicious unique dish. “The plantation as a main is great. The heart of palm and shrimp introduces you to authentic Mauritian cuisine. The evening was topped off with a complementary rum to end a magical experience in Mauritius!!More

I was recommended this place for its delicious steaks and I'm super grateful for that recommendation! Mini fillet that I ordered was melting in my mouth! I would also recommend creamy spinach on the side because it's truly delicious! Apart from the cuisine, the place...has such a great vibe and live music (we went on a Friday night)! It was great - not too loud, not too low, so nothing was interrupting the conversation yet we had a super nice music in the back. The service is fabulous too - very nice and approachable people! A special thank you to Jean-Francois for his warm welcome!More

Beautiful Restaurant/Bar with amazing food. Prices are a little higher then other Restaurants on the island but definitely worth it. Service is great, there have been 10 persons standing around just waiting to help you or refill your glas. The live music was also great,...not to loud and made a great atmosphere. It's has definitely been the best restaurant on our 3 weeks trip :-)More
