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.

We visited this joint (I would not call it a restaurant) with a colleague after meeting a client up in the north. A friend of mine from France had actually told me about this place. I asked for a recommendation for something filling as it...were a bit hungry and we went with her recommendation. All good for so far. After the meal, the French tenant asked if we wanted dessert. We told her that we wanted some light because the dish was heavy. It actually was butternut gratin with chorizo. The lady looked at me in the eye and spurted the following words in French, "Un dessert leger, c'est comme un plat mauricien sans piment! ça n'existe pas! Prenez l'addition!"* * A light dessert is like a Mauritian dish without chillies, it does not exist. Take the bill! We paid and left. Now I do not know her issue with Mauritius, Mauritius cuisine or us, but she did not seem happy to do her job or where she was. And I am steering clear of this place .More

The food is amazing! I’m not a big salad person but this place really showed me that salads can be incredibly delicious and filling. I also really loved the olive oil we got with our bread, it was so good. The staff is also super...friendly and helpful. You can tell that they put a lot of love into their food and service.More

Clean, calm, friendly and the food is beautiful. So pleased we visited - I loved the butternut squash & chorizo risotto & my husband’s spaghetti bolognaise was great too. Wish we had space for desserts, they look fabulous. It’s more of a meal than a...snack but we’ll worth a visitMore

A little away from Grand Baie but worth making the effort to visit. Service is friendly and food delicious. Relaxed with a dessert and coffee afterwards.

Wow, we have been back to this restaurant 3 times in the past week because the food is exceptional. We have ordered something different every time and have not been disappointed. The blend of fine ingredients make the overall dishes well balanced and filling. We...have tried spaghetti, risotto and vegetable crumble. Couldn't resist the dessert menu which is varied and has something for all tastes. The brownie was very nutty and tasty and the pannacota with blueberries equally as good. I need to give the owner and assistant a mention too, as they take time to describe the dishes and the service is very swift and efficient. Highly recommended and hope to be back again soon.More

Very nice place to have lunch in a shaded outside terrace. Food was very good and served within a very reasonable time. Staff was friendly. Shame this restaurant is not open in the evenings as it has the potential to be a very pleasant place...to enjoy dinner.More

A very nice covered outdoorsy restaurant & cafe space, we visited around 2pm for some lunch & opted for a Gorgonzola gnocchi & a pesto, mozzarella & tomato panini. The atmosphere was calming, although close to the road it has plenty of parking space &...was quiet when sat down. The waitress that served us was kind & attentive. Service was swift, the overall bill came to around £30 for 2 lunch items, a (large!) side salad & 2 soft drinks. Overall we really enjoyed this visit & would recommend.More

First class all round. Perhaps because it is not in the centre of tourism we managed to just arrive and get a table. Very friendly and helpful staff, with an active owner/manager who supported them with service. Food was from a fresh daily menu and...a range of meat, fish, vegetarian dishes with lots of happy faces all enjoying different dishes. Definitely a place which deserves a second visit from us, thanks to all involved with this restaurant.More

This place is hard to find as it doesn’t look like a restaurant from the outside. The food is so fresh and tasty and well cooked. Expect dishes like pasta with chorizo, peppers and tomato sauce. Or Vietnamese beef noodle salad. Or a variety of...seafood dishes. Home made deserts. Very good value. It does not open for dinner.More
