This local restaurant is just great - this is true Mauritius - so much better than a fancy hotel restaurant. Its low key in decor, low key on price, excellent on service and food. Had such a great evening, would def return when next in the area.

Me and my family where stopping only 5 minutes by car from the Chez Tino restaurant, it seems like all the good restaurants look nothing like you where expecting from the outside, reminded me of a small taxi rank.

This restaurant is really good value and to make the experience even better, the staff are great. We ate lobster, washed down with local beer, on the balcony overlooking the bay and I can't fault it. Well worth booking and asking to sit outside (if it is fine) otherwise you may be kept in the dark!

I don't give excellent as I always feel there is room for improvement but in my opinion and my experience Chez Tino deserves it. We drove 4 hours on scooters to get to eat at Chez Tino and from the moment we walked in our host was welcoming, helpful and treated us like royalty. They arranged special plates of different...

Great day trip to Ile aux Cerfs with Tino Tours. The captain and crew are amazingly friendly and crew. Food - music - the secret recipe cocktail :-) we loved it all!

The ambience and service right from the first welcome until you bid good bye...it feels like feeding your soul. I have celebrated all my special occasions here with the apt meals to compliment and grace the memories, created in Mauritius! They have facilities for a complete holiday& not just a meal.

The name Chez Tino's kept popping up on every food critic's list when I was researching about Mauritius that I knew I had to try this place with my husband. And it did not disappoint! The seafood dishes served at Chez Tino's were amazingly fresh and flavorful. We loved it so much that we came back a second time for... More

Chez Tino is a great little family run seafood and grill restaurant in Trou D'eau Douce. Located on the East Coast by the Shangri-La, not where located on trip Advisor map... Excellent view of the harbour, once you pass through the odd garage entrance. We had grilled fish and chicken, accompanied by decent and reasonable house wines. This is a... More
