Le Capitaine

A popular restaurant among both locals and tourists, Le Capitaine serves a traditional menu of Maritian/sea food cuisine.

This pleasant space is known for its remarkable array of sea food dishes so it is a must for those who enjoy the fresh taste of exotic sea food. They boast unique and original recipes  that include the house special Lobster Ravioli with fresh cucumber accompanied by sea views and a welcoming refreshing and gentle sea breeze.

If sea food isn’t your favourite kind of dish they also have pasta dishes and chicken dishes available so everyone should be happy to dine here.

Le Fangourin

Located between Port Louis and Grand Bay this picturesque beauty is something of a very wonderful treat.

At Le Fangourin there is a very wide range of how you choose to dine, from lunches and dinners to choosing a set menu and buffets. Their cuisine is inspired by unique flavours yet they maintain a Maritian culinary heritage. There is also a very beautiful veranda on which you could enjoy a meal that overlooks the central Plateus mountains. What may be even better is that they have a pool for you to enjoy which is surrounded by luxuriant tropical flora.

This one would definitely be on my list of places to eat!

Domaine Anna Chinese Restaurant

This amazing place is definitely somewhere you might prefer to dine if you love grandeur surroundings.

On entry Domaine Anna impresses with its driveway entrance lit up by torch lamps as you come in from the surrounding landscape of sugar fields. Though it may give the impression it’s for evening dining only lunch is served here too. Their vegetables are home grown and are reportedly very fresh and tasty; you may even dine in one of their gazebos which sit on manmade lakes set in tropical gardens where you could also enjoy live music.

Dinner is the busiest time thus reservations are a must!

Le Chateau De Bel Ombre

Le Chateau might be somewhere you will want to go to have a relaxing and romantic evening when on a break with that special someone.

This particular restaurant has beautiful silver service that would impress most visitors; it’s a popular spot for weddings and is a restored colonial mansion from the eighteenth century – so even if you love a bit of history you’ll feel at home here. With an authentic stone fountain and the option for you to dine on a balcony; no matter where you dine in this place the cuisine is delicious and traditional with a delicate candle lit romantic atmosphere which is sure to get you cozy.

Reservations are a must as it is popular with locals and tourists.

Le Barachois

A sea food based menu here at Le Barachois is sure to delight all fish-lovers on holiday in Mauritius.

A thatched stone building with unique decorations consisting of different shells on the walls with a rustic design would make anyone a little bit curious of what this place has to offer. There is locally farmed Giant Shrimp, Lobster and Crab to enjoy by the beautiful sea. There is also a Shell Museum owned by Le Barachois which is free to enter and has a fascinating collection from all over the world.

Reservations are recommended but not a must for lunch or dinner
