We have been there with four adults and one baby. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff is very friendly and the food excellent. I really can recommend this restaurant.

I don't know what was worse: the service or the food? Both! Drinks have not been served as ordered; bread and parfait was served 30 seconds before the main dish; Cannelloni was terrible; beerglass had mold inside; So don't expect complain management! They haven't even deducted the not drunken beer from the bill. Never had such a terrible experience!

Big Willy's is a typical sports bar. The restaurant is outdoors and there's one central large TV projection with other TV screens scattered around the place to air live international matches. When I was there, they were not screening any matches, nor did I get to see a schedule, so I won't comment on the quality of the screening or... More

Went there a few times during my holidays to Mauritius. It's a really nice place and the food is delicious. The outdoor area is very nice and cosy. There is also a good variety of music to satified everyone. The service is really good and finally the event manager Jerome Oysel is just a really nice guy. ☆☆☆☆☆

I had the Mauritius prawn and chicken curry dish and it was decent (not extraordinary), my colleague had the vegetarian lasagne (he is a vegetarian and that was... More

Went there with my family and friends. Have great variety on the menu, food was excellent and the big screens showed rugby. Fantastic. Prices are reasonable, parking is a bit restricted but vibe is great. Incredible service from the waiter who memorized food order for 12 people with children screaming in between. Will definitely go there again when I am... More
