Sands Resort and Spa – Flic en Flac – Mauritius Visit Review:

The Sands Resort is one of the few hotels in Mauritius that still belongs to a local family and not a large international group. That's why we always feel in this establishment a slightly less formatted atmosphere than in many other establishments. The rooms are beautiful and all overlooking a beautiful garden facing the Indian Ocean.  They have a shimmering decoration and [...]

Spices Sands Resort – Flic en Flac – Mauritius Visit Review:

Contrary to my habits, I do not rate this restaurant because sometimes it is necessary to adapt to particular situations. Indeed, Guillaume Brégeat, the new chef arrived only five months ago at the management of the restaurants of Sands Resort and he has not yet had the time to remodel the menu. You will tell me that five months is enough. But the situation of hotel in the tropical [...]

Le Pescatore – Trou aux Biches – Mauritius Visit Review: 12,6

What the cost!

How to leave a restaurant having eaten well but with a bitter taste in the mouth? Just go to Le Pescatore at Trou aux Biches in Mauritius.    Very nice elegant and cosy ambiance, well decorated.    Similarly, the menu is physically qualitative. There was a significant expense in a good printer.    The bread is very good. The [...]

La vieille rouge – Grand Baie – Mauritius Visit Review: 13,2

Beau plateau

I will take the risk of getting angry with 99% of the restaurants in Mauritius but we will discuss the subject of lobster, fresh and local. You must know that you will very rarely get fresh and that it can often not be Mauritian. This concerns all restaurants in Mauritius, not specifically "La vieille rouge". Only the restaurants of luxury hotels, for reasons of price and supply chain, [...]

Le Bénitier – Pereybere – Mauritius Visit Review: 12

I think I have almost ate in all the main restaurants of Pereybere! Le Bénitier is facing the beach and is part of the classic range of small local restaurants.     Nothing very original or exceptional on the menu. But honest and correct food.    The best part is probably the chicken accras, very well cooked, with a donut dough [...]

Mamma Mia – Grand Baie – Mauritius Visit Review: 11,6

Light Please!

If I listened to my friend Paul-Emmanuel, I would put a 20/20 and write a dithyrambic article on Mamma Mia, one of its Mauritian canteens. But as my best half sometimes says, I'm not always someone cool ... Do not expect a shootdown  flame because we eat pretty well in this Italian restaurant in Grand BaIE. It has the first benefit of having existed for years. This [...]

Emirates Visit Review:

Treat yourself!

Flying in Business Class on Emirates is a bit nostalgic of what the airlines companies were in their glory days, when they spent money, when nothing was too much to satisfy the customer. This company makes you forget this hesitation that you had when you validated the upgrade, this moment when you said to yourself: "It is true that we must have fun in life but is it really [...]

Abbeyglen Castle Hotel – Clifden – Eire Visit Review:

Red neck +

Strange hotel whose distant appearance kindly deceives when you are near. But up close, the concrete walls to over-lineage to believe that it is stone, the tacky decoration, the customers "red neck +" immediately get your head straight. Do not be fooled by the website that flings "luxury" at every corner and displays photos of excellent [...]

Byrnes – Ennistymon – Eire Visit Review: 12,6

Motley !

Establishment with strange decoration since the facade is extremely colorful, the entrance is quite chic, with some stools and a nice bar, then the intermediate room, absolutely not lit, and the third room which gives on a beautiful terrace with a view on the famous waterfalls of Ennistymon. But this room has filthy chairs and plastic tablecloths that compete with [...]
