The good ones:
1. Creole cabin. (La Preneuse) Although it doesn’t look like much from the outside, this is the best restaurant we visited during our two week vacation. They only have about four dishes that vary from day to day depending on what the fisherman brings. So expect perfectly cooked very fresh fish! The excellent service and the beautiful garden make this a restaurant not to be missed. Also at a moderate price.
2. Domaine Anna. (Flic en Flac) This surprisingly large place is located on the road leading to Flic-en-flac after a pass through the sugar fields. Excellent seafood at reasonable prices in beautiful surroundings. We weren’t very happy with the service, but we were a little late. After dinner there is live music (at least the night we went).
3. Le Sirocain (La Gaulette) Located off the main road near La Gaulette, this restaurant is a gem. Seafood and excellent Creole food at reasonable prices.
4. The Italian restaurant at Rousseau Creole. I don’t remember the name, but I do remember the tomato sauce. Surprisingly good Italian food in a place you wouldn’t otherwise go: the Creole Rousseau shopping center. Like all the stores we visit in Mauritius, they sell substandard copies at ridiculous prices. However, the Italian restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
The Sirandaises. Expensive and overly ambitious menu that does not meet. We visited it twice and the Tournedos with Roquefort sauce are really good. You get an extra point for a beautiful beach location. Go there for a pint of phoenix or a cocktail and enjoy the sunset and then eat elsewhere.
The ones we didn’t test:
Gio. It might be worth a visit …
