Sands Grill et Bar – Ile aux Cerfs – Mauritius Visit Review: 15.8

Farniente

The situation of the restaurants on the Ile aux Cerfs seems a little complicated. To put it simply, the Touesrock dealership stopped, so the Paul and Virgine restaurant became Sands Grill. The new manager also owns The Masala Chaumière. I went to both.The Sands Grill is ideally located in front of the beach and the channel of Deer Island. One can not find better than to be under [...]

Baystone Restaurant – Pointe aux Canonniers – Mauritius Visit Review: 11.2

Except the view, no salvation.

Apart from the restaurants of the most luxury hotels in Mauritius, the others usually offer lunch only a very watered down card quite inconsistent with what they post on their site or social networks. Of course, you have lunch there sympathetically but do not expect to find the gastronomy displayed for dinner. The advantage is that they leave the external clientele much easier to enter [...]

Le Off (Dum Dum!) – Pointe aux Canonniers – Mauritius Visit Review: 11

Cheater.

It's really the war we want to declare to this kind of establishment that is cheating on you with their website. Have a look and admire the sublime photos. And choose somewhere else.The owner has used a professional (very competent) photographer to get these images that make you dream. And when you go through the gate, you think that you are at a wrong address. Here you have a [...]

Escale créole – Moka – Mauritius Visit Review: 16.2

Why?

Why? Why is this restaurant listed on Tripadvisor N°1 in Mauritius in front of all the restaurants of luxury hotels? One of the biggest problems of Tripadvisor is the categorization of establishments. Indeed, this one is a very nice canteen under pergola proposing a very tasty Creole cuisine.There are only two menus but at those prices, take the full. You have an assortment [...]

L’archipel des saveurs – Grand Baie – Mauritius Visit Review: 8.8

No more talk, we shoot.

Still in the series "hotel restaurants that have a very light lunch card", I introduce our champion.The setting impress a maximum even if one feels that the straw huts begin to be a little old.The water of the pool where the tables stay is charming but too stagnant. Mosquitoes are crazy, customers are less. The pool is an ice cube. The bartender is a long (long, long, long time [...]

Flowers of Paradise – Pereybere – Mauritius Visit Review: 10.4

Withered flower.

I went to this restaurant twice in 2016 and once in 2017. If we feel that the chef knows his work we can regret a significant decline in the quality. The cooking has a smell of France embellished with local elements. For 2016, scallops with perfect cooking. Perfect Gambas of Madagascar too. Mikados of Nutella were priceless! Good plates decoration. A tiny mistake: the [...]

Le Rock – Hyères – France Visit Review: 14.6

Rockollection.

To arrive near a station is always to dream of another world. Between a highway to hell and a staircase to heaven, there is a choice. Edith Cavel joined her personal Jesus (who had just left Chicago) like so many other heroes, which allowed her to have a street in Hyeres, while waiting for Philadelphia. Inspired by these good vibes, it's here that some friends with a smells like teen [...]

La petite Fringale – Porquerolles – France Visit Review: 13

Munchies filled.

Still happy that some restaurateur have the honesty not to abuse their situation. The owners of this establishment could easily benefit from the fact that they are right next to the wharf to flog craps to the geatest number who disembark daily, without worrying about quality. After all, it pours in Porquerolles, they are not there to retain.If the cuisine is not very elaborate, [...]

Le Porquerollais – Porquerolles – France Visit Review: 12.8

The check distinguishes it self

Second visit for this restaurant which has some claims to stand out in the central square of Porquerolles. But the only thing really remarkable is the presence of our former president who is recovering in the company of Gerard Jugnot of his forced retirement. All this for an addition that has absorbed local sea spray. The fish soup is good. The octopus carpaccio is a bit commonplace [...]

Villa Sainte-Anne – Porquerolles – France Visit Review: 13.2

Sainte-Anne, patron saint of the climbers.

On the top of the main square of Porquerolles, Villa Sainte-Anne is itself dominated by the church of the village.This atavism of the heights is found with constancy in the composition of the plates. The terrace deserves a little sprucing up but offers the advantage of having dinner in peace, this part of the place being much less noisy than the bottom. The house has the same [...]
