This is allegedly one of the best restaurants in Reunion.

The menu looks good and the food isn't bad but not worth the money.

I ate there with some friends and the plates were dirty and there was a guy smoking on the next table. the food took a while to come but wasn't as great as I expected. The presentation was good but I've had better.

The restaurant doesn't look anything special but they try to make up for it with French style table service i.e. lots of cutlery and a waiter who is constantly leaning over you to add/remove/adjust something.

I think we met the owner who was a small elderly lady who mainly sat at the back tutting about a family with a young kid who kept running round the tables.

The best thing abut the restaurant is the view over the harbour. The worst is probably the price or the small portions. In fact, after 2 courses I was still hungry so had to go get something from a cafe.
