“Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

So nice place, different from the others, with great, friendly, smiling, positive staff! You can just sit there in the late afternoon having a drink or a cup of coffee; You can stay for a dinner with delicious food with choices for every taste- the mixed sea plate is great, grilled squid is one of the best I've tasted, Thai cuisine and Creole taste, meat or salads. This is a place one will always remember for the authentic atmosphere, peace of mind, relax and friendly people you will meet there. I would highly recommend it! You may not realize immediately the value of such place, but once you are away, you start to realize what you had there! Some places could look more fancy, or more cheap, or with more choices, but you will finally regret that you missed the chance to stay at your favorite place.

“Great service and now have an authentic Thai cook!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Be sure to check out this little gem. It's easy to find in Trou Aux Biches (near the junction after the police station), so if you're staying in Gran Baie or Mon Choisey it's close by. The fried calamari is some of the tastiest you'll come across. The pad thai is as delicious and as good as you'll get (I've eaten a lot of calamari and Thai food in my time!). The chef joined them just a month ago and she's from Thailand so the Thai menu is authentic. Warm service with a smile and prices are also reasonable.

“Wish we'd found it earlier in our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Reading through the previous reviews really summed up our experience of Ippocampo; professional, friendly, fun and truly enjoyable. We only wished we'd visited earlier in our holiday.

Staying up the road, we'd heard the sega music playing every Friday. We had gone past and admired the modern setting and wondered if we should visit. On our final night, we finally ventured down and were so pleased we did.

We tried a mix of Mauritian curry's and Italian pasta for main, then had coffee and pineapple fritter with icecream for afters. It was presented beautifully and tasted wonderful! The live music was great (the guy singing modern songs with a guitar was really enjoyable) as was the traditional sega and singers. All the well presented staff made a genuine effort to make us welcome, including the chef, who also came out to say hello.

Anyone wanting to enjoy some traditional Mauritian music and food, or if you are missing cuisine from closer to home while on holiday, this is a great place to visit for food and entertainment with friends.

Good luck, Ippocampo - and thanks for making our last night in Mauritius so enjoyable.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

We were in veranda aux biches this past week and found this gem of a restaurant on our first day. Brian the bartender was so amazingly friendly and realy makes the best coctails in mauritius. We returned 2 more times amd each time was magical. I will promote and remeber this restaurant for a very long time.

What else is there to say? In Ippocampo you will find the friendliest staff, best ambience and greatest service in the area. Brice cooks great food and Brian and Eric know how to handle a good bar. Visit! Greetings from Germany!
