Very friendly staff and fast service but my dish was tasteless and had no veg at all. Smallish portions but then again the price was low as well. Very nice rum arrange and only Rs65! Three persons ate and drank for under Rs1000, not bad.

Standard Mauritian fare here. Prices cheaper than nearby, had a calamari chow mein and an octopus dish, both decent but nothing above average.

We live nearby and this restaurant seems to attract a lot of tourists, we have tried it twice and found the food to be below average, the service almost non existent and the restaurant is dirty. Fully understand it is a basic local restaurant, we usually enjoy this type of place but this one just was not good at all.... More

Local people, local food. I always have a great time when I eat here, priced right, off the beaten track, not fine dining by any means - just good company, excellent friendly staff, good food and drink and not overly priced like so many places on the island.

La Marmite is a wonderfully understated little gem of a cafe/restaurant in Trou aux Biches. Situated at the crossroads (loaded with potential), this superb little place serves great, unpretentious food at very reasonable prices. The waiter asked me did, "I want a girl's beer, or a man's beer?" The subsequently drunk 'man's beer' could have satisfied the hardiest of drinkers.... More

Extremely friendly service from the individuals working there. It appears to be a family run business with 2 people running the entire show. I had the Seafood Noodles which was great, do not order if you are not a fan of Dorado the local fish. Octopus curry was nice For dessert we had a fantastic Crem Brule We also had... More

Recommended to us by our security guard at the Bon Azur apartments and having read reviews before we got to Mauritius, we decided to give La Marmite a try last night. It was full of locals which is always a good sign. We were not disappointed, the food was excellent. We had samosas for starters and they were delicious. Most... More

On the cheap side, felt like the food was just reheated pre-prepared curries... Much cheaper for foods and drinks than other places nearby. Perhaps best to use as a competitively priced bar than a restaurant
