We dropped by unexpectedly while touring the South and managed to get good seats, though it did get filled up quite fast by 1pm.

Not the easiest place to get to, but quite easy to spot as there's nothing else around. The views were spectacular especially on a sunny day. The food itself was good but overpriced. They offer Mauritian cuisine. I had the wild boar which was great and the seafood vindaye which was decent. You're clearly paying for the setting rather than the food. The house cocktails were just average and I would just stick with beer or liquor. The clientele were mostly tourists.

It's a nice place to stop by for lunch if you're touring the south of the island, but I would not expressly go there just for the food.

Go here for the views. It's a beautiful restaurant, set in a garden a little outside of Chamarel. The restaurant is set on a hill with views extending to parts of the coast and Le Morne Brabant in the distance.

The food is quite nice (most closely resembling local homestyle cooking), though not something we wanted to come back for, and quite pricey for this type of food - mains ranging in the 750-1200 rupees range (~$20-35 at the time of writing), appetizers around 500 rupees (~$13). Drinks were far more reasonable.

On a Sunday afternoon in July, we did not need a reservation - the restaurant was probably about half-full at 1pm.

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed a stunning view whilst eating. The food was decent (stewed wild boar) deserts were also suprisingly good. We were expecting worse because it is quite a comercial restaurant with a lot of tourists and tour companies but we were pleasently surprised. The staff were not entirely friendly though and seemed to be worked off their feet!

Lovely but fairly expensive restaurant, advisable to book ahead to get a seat with a view. Watch out out for the giant fruit bats that glide about across the valley. In the gardens there are pigmy hedgehogs just before you enter the restaurant. We visited twice during our holiday & enjoyed both occasions. For bird watchers look out for the endemic Eco Parakeet which feeds on the fruit trees in the garden (much greener than the common ones!!)
