Mauritius Insider’s Guide To Great Places to Eat

Have you been to Mauritius? Even if you have not visited this romantic part of Africa, you must have heard about it.  In the Indian Ocean Island, we are yet to find the island that can match the gourmet cuisine of Mauritius.  You are exposed to a multitude of restaurants run by Michelin stars and celebrity chefs.

Specialties such as vindaye-deep-fried fish coated in turmeric, mustard seeds and chilies, Creole fish rougaille- a spicy tomato sauce and Indian specialties like camarons, smoked blue marlin and palm hearts are some of the meals you may not resist when you come to Mauritius.  We have listed some of the best places where you can eat on the island.

Le Château de Bel Ombre

Thinking of an authentic experience in a lovely setting, Le Château de Bel Ombre is the candlelit restaurant that will offer you a romantic spot for dining and weddings. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with stone water fountain, spiral staircase and Banyan tree.

Le Fangourin

You will find a dearth of eateries in La Fangourin- a surprising beautiful food center that specializes in the local fusion cuisine blended with a modern flavor.   The unfussy environment is elegant and the flamboyant tree makes dining one of the most amazing thing you can do in Mauritius. We assure you the experience is mind-blowing.

Le Case du Pecheur

Le Case du Pecheur is a timber and thatched stone restaurant designed with shells and coral underfoot. The environment may look rustic until you taste the food. The giant shrimps, crab and lobsters are served on tables made of wood among mangrove just close to the ocean.  Don’t forget to ask of wild venison when you are here.

Chez Tante Athalie

A visit to Mauritius may not be complete if you have not eaten at Chez Tante Athalie- a restaurant that is built on a sugar plantation, offering guests à la carte grills and a prix fixe Creole menu. You can eat some of the local meals in  this restaurant.

La Chaumière Masala

An  old Banyan tree makes a canopy for La Chaumière Masala to give guests some of the best experience on the island.  There was a time giant tortoises were around for kids to ride but they are not longer here.  The modern dining experience that leaves you asking for more meal is something you have to experience for yourself.
