After a glorious day of sunbathing and splashing at the beach, it is only fitting that your Mauritian holiday gets better with a hearty meal at a restaurant that promises it all – taste, decor and great service. If you are on lookout for best fine dining restaurants in Mauritius, you must stop and know about these top five places.
Sitting inside the premier Heritage Le telfair, Annabella’s Restaurant oozes luxury from the moment you set foot in its premises. The ambiance is vintage yet modern, luring fine-dining crowds with white-dominated furniture and furnishings. The menu is an amalgam of native Mauritian as well as popular international cuisines and features a number of sumptuous fish-based dishes that are also best-sellers. Be mindful that the restaurant insists on semi-casuals for patrons dining from 7pm onward.
Château Mon Désir
Magnificent colonial architecture and a splendid view of the ‘Historical Ruins of Balaclava’ and the ‘Citron’ river might be the major draws of the brilliant Château Mon Désir, but ask anyone who has experienced the warm hospitality and you’ll know there’s more to love. The delicateness of the French cuisine on offer is hard to miss as is the authenticity of the Indian fare that is loved by many. The restaurant is also a name to be reckoned with when it comes to organising elegant lunches, dinners, high tea events and other gourmet festivals and celebrations.
Republik Beach Club & Grill
Dining beside the turquoise blue waters and surrounded by the crystalline beaches, with the spectacular bay view in sight does something for everyone and Republik Beach Club & Grill knows just the fact. It is the kind of place that encourages you to let loose – be it to dig your hands in the tastiest barbecue dishes or to groove to the popular beats played by leading DJs in its trendy bar. You could visit for lunch if you’d like to enjoy the clear views of Trou d’Eau Douce Bay. However, dinnertime is when the place really comes alive. The restaurant is located in Le Touessrok Resort and Spa, Mauritius.
Mauritius is teeming with a number of fine dining Indian restaurants but none has come close to the fame and love that Safran has received. From the fine incense that wafts off in the air on entry to food being served in traditional ‘thalis’, several little details have gone into giving the restaurant the familiar Indian ambiance. There are whole lot of sumptuous appetisers and salads on offer, other than the traditional ‘tandoori’ main course dishes, ‘biryanis’ and desserts. The restaurant also specialises in premium vegetarian fare. There’s a gentleman’s dress code for entry to dinner.
Mon Plaisir Restaurant
There’s something quite warm and exciting about buffets that lay out a lavish spread from various world cuisines to consume to our heart’s content. Mon Plaisir Restaurant hosted by Sugar Beach, A Sun Resort, is one place in Mauritius that understands the fact and does a great job at making guests feel pampered and well-taken care of. The poolside restaurant serves continental breakfasts, English buffets and themed dinners amidst its elegant surroundings.
