Chez Tante Athalie is the place to have lunch if you are looking for a cool, out of town place to eat in a superb museum type environment where vintage car are exposed, birds singing melodiously outside and where one of the best creole cuisine is served. Maryline leaves no stone unturned to please her guest!

I was looking forward to visit this restaurant as one of the highlights of our Mauritius holiday. Natural setting and the classic cars around, what a special place! We arrived there at 3 pm and when we entered the premises I was asked by a lady in her 50s (the owner?) whether she could help. I told her that we... More

Michelin star food this is not.... but if you are looking for authentic Mauritian cuisine, a unique setting and friendly warm hospitality then this is your place. I am not one to rate a place with 5 stars but this was more than a meal; it was an experience. The food was good, I choice from a set menus and... More

A beautiful countryside setting with some vintage cars to admire if you wander round the garden. Our meal was a big disappointment. Their menu of the day comprised a small, rather tasteless salad, a very small portion of rather tasteless beef curry served with plenty of plain rice, and the smallest banana flambé that I have ever eaten. Not good... More

Authentic Mauritian cuisine with a warm welcome and lovely atmosphere. The old cars collection and Cessna airplane make it a unique concept that we'll be greatly appreciated by few. If not for the concept, the personnel will make sure that you enjoy your meal.

We turned up without a reservation at this quirky restaurant in the fields. You arrive down a grand tree-lined driveway at a closed-up house - don't worry! Chez Tante Athalie is round the back, to the left. Very informal, fascinating old cars outside including an MGB GT, much-admired among the young of the 1970s. The food is excellent, the staff...

Great location, a relax oasis with a "little museum of vintage cars". We chose 2 adult menu and one baby menu. For good price Food taste good, mild spicy and desserts + coffee also taste good! Try it!

Went for lunch here after the Botanical gardens (go left out of the car park, left at the t-junction, then look out for a sign 2km on your left). The welcome was warm and inviting and we took the recommendation of the set lunch menu. Some pickles to start were delicious, as was the accompanying salad. The main course was... More

Visited without making a reservation which is a must if you want to be seated on the veranda. The service and welcome were both excellent and the food from The Table de Hote was excellent value for money. Spent an enjoyable couple of hours dining, looking around the cars and watching the colourful birds being fed. A must if you... More
