The restaurant is located in a calm place. At night the street is not very well lit up but that doesn’t entail any problem at all since the place is in general quite safe. The atmosphere inside is very good thanks to the adequate decoration and illumination. The lights are very nice and decorative. Besides, the music is not too... More

We dropped in at 14h00 one day, and were told we could have drinks but the kitchen was closed. In fact, they were serving the last lunches as we got our cocktails. We booked a table for that evening and returned after dark. The place was completely transformed by many, many lights of different sources... quite enchanting. Our starters were... More

As we only expected a beach restaurant ,we got a delicious surprise in the restaurant La Manta. Good food in a very nice location, it was our own good experience But if we would have been looking for a gastronomic table, we certainly would have been disappointed. The best beach restaurant we ever visited so far

A very nice restaurant in l'hermitage. The place was really nice: not directly on the beach but just in front of it. The atmosphere was cool, with tables in a nice garden full of lamps. The food was very good, both fish and creole local curry. The personal was very charming and English speaking (not usual at all in reunion!).... More

The prawn salad and the grilled bream were very good. Lovely garden setting with friendly service. We do not speak French, so it was very nice that the owner spoke good English and did not laugh at our attempts at French! Very pleasant experience.

The restaurant is across the road from the lagoon so you don't see the water. What you do see is a very nice garden with lots of little fun lamps making for a very pleasant atmosphere. Weather permitting, if you want to take full advantage of this you have to ask to be seated outside - otherwise they seat "non-smokers"... More

I arrived before 8 for dinner and the service was very fast ... after it got full some waiting was necessary. The service was excellent, smiling and friendly. Very good options. I recommend the duo carry from the creole dishes: big portion and very tasty; I've enjoyed it a lot. As a plus a very nice atmosphere, a bit on... More
