“awesome sea food by the waterfront”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

before talking about the food should talk about the ambiance first. The view was excellent from where we were sitting, there were ample options of sitting inside the restaurant, in the balcony or outside and all were facing the beautiful Port Louis waterfront. We ordered mixed grilled seafood items , fresh lobster and fish of the day. Though the food came a little late ( 30 minutes and we were hungry with all the walking) it was worth it !! and the view ! there are pizza joints and food courts but anybody visiting waterfront should come here specially if they are looking for a quiet place, good views and excellent sea food.

“Amazing food and not expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Had an amazing dinner, great wine and even a birthday cake for my son. Would go back tomorrow.
The food was greatly priced and the service was great.
The ambience was lovely and there was also live music there.

“Nasty, poor and a waste of money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

This place is advertised as a seafood restaurant. But none of the seafood was fresh, the food filled a hole and that is it. It was expensive and unappetizing .
