WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Good food with excellent service”
Two decent glasses of rose accompanied a good cesar salad with seared tuna, and innovative feta salad with grilled fruit. Unobtrusive yet attentive service, right on the beachside.

“Best Sundowner Spot in Mauritius - plus great food!”
Probably the best sundowner spot in Mauritius. We returned on a few occasions during our vacation for the view plus the great cocktails and fine food. Every dish was fresh, well prepared and delicious.

Corinna Durocher- Mauritius
By far the nicest restaurant experience during our stay in Mauritius. A beautiful location by the beach, hidden from the traffic and noise. Absolutely wonderful service. People working there are so service minded, nice, smiley and they simply care about the guests at all times. The food was delicious and their mojito! Amazing!
We actually came back and it was even better.
Super friendly atmosphere, beautiful design and location, delicious food and drinks! What else do one needs? 😄 Highly recommended!

We had dinner here and it was brilliant. Food is good and place really really nice. The staff is super nice. There is a pool and it's straight on the beach. Ideal for dinner or for a drink. I'll go back
