The (South African) fillet steak was recommended in a guidebook, and I can happily confirm that it was absolutely fantastic! My wife went for the Entrecote which was equally good. My younger son was persuaded to have the ribs, which were almost the same size as him! Thanks to a doggybag we all had some for lunch the next day and I can confirm they were very good as well.

I tend not to eat steak unless I know it to be extremely good, either at home or when out to dinner, but I'm going to have to seek out a UK importer of SA beef if it means I could eat fillet like that again...

Although the place wasn't busy (it was July after all), the owner makes the atmosphere as he is very friendly.

Strongly recommended for families as they do small dishes too!

We found this place through the lonely planet that we carried on our holiday. The restaurant is run by a South African man and is famous for its very good steaks. All steaks are imported from South Africa and this fact is also noted on the menu etc. Besides the restaurant there is also a small clothing store, second hand bookshop and a few rooms to rent as well. The atmosphere is relaxed and service is great,

When we were there we ordered a 300 gram filet steak which is served with fries, rice or potatoes and salad. In addition we ordered a side of calamari (actually a starter on the menu), pan fried with garlic, also served with salad. All food was extremely good and tasty!! The quality of the steaks were superb and they were cooked perfectly to order, medium and medium-well in our case. Combined with a couple of beers we were more then happy!

The prices are very reasonable (600 MUR for a 300 gram steak, approximately €15) is a good deal! Besides the steaks you can get curries and other local seafood and dishes. Everybody should be able to find something of their liking on the menu.

The restaurant is pretty easy to find in Trou Aux Biches. It is not directly on the beach, but when driving towards the public beach on Trou Aux Biches Road take a left to Royal Road when you hit the beach. From there it is approximately 1 km down the road on your left next to a bend to the right. You can't miss it! Parking spaces available in the back! Its location is correctly shown on Google Maps!!
