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

Sympathetic but not more

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 his 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 proves that the [...]

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 [...]

Off the square – Clifden – Eire Visit Review: 14

Show off the square!

Last stop of our stay in Clifden and probably the best value for money with the pleasure of tasting a lobster straight out of the fishpond and some Irish oysters! More fleshy than the delicate French tables. Even appearing a little heretic, I will admit that I like. I have a soft spot for Utah Beach or Horse's Feet (very big french oysters). It is not necessarily  "gastronomy" but it [...]

Hiney’s – Crossmolina – Eire Visit Review: 8,2

A culinary abyss

Is there an abyss of Irish cuisine? If so, it is probably located in Crossmolina where the Hiney's includes what is worse in the accomplished amateurism.    And yet what's more charming than a small Irish pub with some alcoholic old men idle in the middle of the day, an aquarium hanging at 2 meters, an invalid anesthetizing his pain with [...]

Mitchell’s Restaurant – Clifden – Eire Visit Review: 12

Basic mistakes

Clifden is a chic seaside town that alternates elegant restaurants and pubs. Mitchell's is in the first category. But the selection of dishes that we could eat obliges the gastronomical chronicler to a great objectivity because one oscillates between good products and big mistakes.    The setting is quite elegant with especially a well decorated first floor room.
