“Fresh seafood, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

We had a tasty meal here on a Friday night. Right away things started well when the proprietor made me a custom rum punch-I mentioned that most I had sampled elsewhere were too sweet, so he produced a lovely lime+rum+soda concoction which was gorgeous (Ti Punch, I think)-good enough for a second! I had grilled Dorado wrapped in banana leaf and my husband had the curried catch-of-the-day. Both were yummy. There is a decent wine list (if you don’t fancy rum with dinner) and the bananas flambé made for a grand finale to the evening. We only spent the evening in Grand Baie, but this was easily the nicest place we saw. Worth a try!

“Great meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

One of the best restaurants in the Grand Baie area! Sits on the waterside, great views. Service wasn't the best, but the quality of the meals made up for it!

“disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

The baby octopus salad was great but there it ended. The remaining 5 courses were disappointing to say the least. We complained about one of the dishes (aged prawns in a tomato sauce mostly from a tin judging by the taste) and were given a free dessert. However, the bill was still a nasty shock - just under 90 pounds sterling. Much too expensive for the quality of the food and service.
