Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: Lunch, Reservations
Description: Opened only from Monday to Friday for lunches only. Give us a phone call for availibility. A Creole traditional restaurant in Mauritius, a unique know-how .... Between the famous Rougaille Creole sausage, cang mocked cabbage and salted fish, traditional curry chicken creole, or broth 'zourite and coconut chutney' Escale Creole remains the TABLE where you and your guests can make the unique experience of a "real Manze Lacaze" , hearty and generous !!! In a large veranda, we can serve between 2 and 50 seats on large tables with traditional gingham tablecloths. Our "table d'hote" allows each client to help himself laid flat on the table well Mauritian way, so that everyone is free to be reserved if desired

We visited the restaurant as our lunch break on our tour of the North island and it was simply amazing, such a warm welcome from the owner and the food was absolutely fabulous. Our first real taste of authentic creole cuisine and it was perfect. We loved the quirky atmosphere and could have happily stayed much longer than our time allowed.
I could see that it would be a difficult place to find if you go without a guide but it is so worth the effort and promises a meal and experience you will always remember.

Greetings from Escale Créole!
It has been a great pleasure to welcome you and I would like to thank you for your wonderful comment about our family restaurant.
Thanks to Tripadvisor and our website, our visitors get to know about the existence and location of Escale Créole, where we serve as we say "grand-mother's recipes" creole food, in a cosy atmosphere since 20 years now....

I had lunch at the Escale Creole. The guide took us there after visiting the Northern part of the island.
As soon as you enter the property, you can feel an amazing energy. Lovely flowers everywhere and, just as lovely is the owner, which will welcome you with fresh juice and a warm smile.
The atmoshere, the food, the service and the music - all amazing!

Thank you!

Fantastic atmosphere - great food! We were really welcomed to the setting by the most amazing owner,, she had a beautiful smile and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome - we went for the experience of authentic food and that was exactly what we got. The food came in beautiful pots - the aroma surrounding us,,the contents explained! Fab day out and wonderful magical place.

the place in really nice, setting and the people just so welcoming and warm :) they were so relaxed and understanding because we got lost, the sign is a bit small.
the food was not to our liking, but i have to say that it was on our last day and i personally was felling a bit sick, so probably the overall impression was a bit ruined with all that. i would recommend to go there on the beginning of your visit to mauritius :)

My first visit there is one to remember . Majo & Christine cuisine is second to none. If you want to taste the real creole food, look no further. They are the best. Highly recommended. Can't wait for my next visit.
