“Great view”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We had dinner at the restaurant once and it was delicious. We had chicken and "the fish of the day" - it was Dorado that day. They were honest to tell us that they didn´t have a "fish of the day", but the one we got was very tasty. The view over the bay is great. The service was ok but nothing special. The price was reasonable.

“The best meal I ever had”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

In this restaurant I eat the hands down best meal I've ever had! the grilled calamari in garlic sauce is out of this world! I have eaten in a lot of restaurants all over the world, but this meal I will never forget. I still dream about it! you could have doubled the price and I would still say that it gives a lot of value, as a matter affect, concerning this meal, price is not an issue. If anyone back home could make me that meal, I would aske them to name a price, and I would pay no matter what. the location is also absolutely perfect. right down on the harbour! the kids can play on the beach as you finish your glass of wine. you can find cheaper food on Mauritius, but I wouldn't bother. friendly staff, and quick service. top marks!

“Nice location but only average food”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Great location overlooking the bay. Service was ok but the food was very average. We had the crab starter which was ok but very heavy handed presentation. Then we had steaks which again were ok but nothing special. I don't understand why restaurants like this don't take that little bit of extra care to make themselves stand out from the crowd. This could be a real winner but right now it's just ok.

“Terrific, went back few times”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

One of two restaurants/bars situated virtually next to each other on the sea’s edge in Grande Baie (see also The Beach House). The location is just superb. The restaurant lies on the small sandy beach and gives a great view of the beautiful blue water bay. People are very welcoming and you can either eat or just use the bar for a drink. Whilst we did just have a drink on our first visit, we used this more as a more formalised restaurant, rather than a bar we would roll up in wearing beach gear. Food was excellent, a good mixture of seafood, pizzas, steaks and good choice of vegetarian food. The vegetarian pizza was particularly good and topped off with ice cold glasses of Provencal rose.
A good place for families, celebrations, Sunday lunches. Our bill averaged £60 for two with wine that flowed freely. Good food, very good service on all visits, good wine, great views – just paradise really.

Thanks so much for your review of Les Canisses. The beauty of Les Canisses (apart from the food and the view of course) is it can suit any occasion, a romantic dinner under the stars, drinks at the bar with friends, a family get together where the kids can play on the beach and more.
