“Why so Negative? Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I don't know why so many people give this place a bad press, we were served promptly by friendly staff, looked after through the whole meal and served some really good food.

We went for the Creole food and it was really tasty, great garlic bread, cold beer and an idyllic location.

“Super view, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

This restaurant is really close to the beach and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was good and seemed to reflect local cuisine, although there were more cosmopolitan things on the menu. I loved it.

“Hot view cold food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Want to sit by the ocean this is the place for you. The setting is lovely. That's where it ends.
We did get a warm welcome and good service from the staff.
We ordered seafood. The food was cold, the fish tasted like scrabbled eggs and the crab on platter was non existent it was more for show. We shared food and the bill was still horrendous R4000 for six people. This place is a real rip off even by Mauritian standards. Have a drink, enjoy the view and definitely go and eat somewhere else

“Don't get near, so terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Let's start with the good thing (there's only one), the view is beautiful. You seat outside and can watch the sea, the boats. But that's it!
Food - HORRIBLE! And overpriced! Every dish our coworkers (and myself) took were bad, from food to ice cream cups and other desserts and drinks (such as fruit cocktail).
Service was sooo slow. Felt as if the waiters were having their afternoon nap and we interfered them.
No way I'm coming back there. Avoid this place at all cost!

“NO!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

This could have been a great restaurant in Grand Baie as the location is superb right next to a beach..but the owners choose to offer poor overpriced food with lack lustre service..its a tourist trap, so spend your money somewhere else
