“Food was very sub-standard”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We visited this restaurant because we had such a pleasant experience in the same named restaurant in Grand Baie, we were very disappointed and would not go back. Staff were ok but food was not what we were expecting, we tried ordering our meals and 2 of the choices were not available, when we got our meals the veggies seemed like they came straight from the freezer, the calamari was over cooked, my partner doesn't eat curry, so she ordered off the menu, fish cooked in banana leaf served on a bed of rice, we'll it was not presented that way, very misleading, it was a fish curry. The only good thing was the location.

“Good food, cordial service and beach-side view”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

The title sums it up - a wonderful ambiance by the sea-side is definitely the high point of this restaurant alongwith the good food and a cordial staff to serve you. They have a good sea-food collection, so visit this place only if you are a sea food lover (though the chicken dishes were also quiet a delight)

“Excellent value for money and superb service”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We liked the look of it and the large outside patio overlooking the sea sold it to us. Firstly our waiter was absolutely charming and so attentive (forgot to get his name or he would be "mentioned in dispatches" lol) Let's say he was the young well built one. We asked for a couple of variations to the menu and he served our food exactly as requested. The food was great value, tasty and enjoyed in a lovely environment. It was a pleasure to pay the bill and walk away feeling that we had found a little gem of a place. Thank to all concerned.
