Had a very pleasant lunch here as part of a group package on an excursion. The 3 courses were all traditional Creole food and were very tasty, nicely cooked and presented. The staff were very pleasant and helpful with explaining what some dishes were. A nice atmosphere in the dining area and a relaxing small garden to sit in afterwards.

We stayed here two nights of our honeymoon and the staff let us have a free session in the Jacuzzi. The rooms are cosy, clean but on the small side. Ours had a balcony which was lovely to look up at the top of the cirque. There is an onsite swimming pool and a restaurant which is handy and breakfast... More

We enjoyed our meal here, the service was prompt and attentive and the food tasty and well presented. I enjoyed the rougail sausages, my partner was slightly less enamoured with the goat curry. Decent bottle of red wine to accompany- recommended place to eat in cilaos and not vastly expensive, €81 for 2 including wine. They aren't open every night... More

Probably the closest to a fine-dining experience in Cilaos. Typical Creole dishes on the menu plus a good range of other international and French options. The service was good as was the food quality, cooking, and presentation - decent portion sizes. Not the cheapest place in town (EUR 140 for 4 people with 1 bottle of wine) but a good... More

Lovely food and absolutely fab red wine, but staff were either flustered or unimpressed with our feeble attempts at french. A long time to get served, both to take our order and recieve food, but it was busy saturday night. . .

It was quite difficult to book a table at Le View Cep because everyone who stays in the hotel seems to come here for dinner. After making a bit of an effort to arrange a table, we were unfortunately quite disappointed with the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. The place was completely booked out and the staff were... More
