Le Whatever is a place to visit if you feel like enjoying food that is super tasty, fresh, beautifully presented a feast to the eyes. It is a pricey dining spot but worth treating yourself and others. The service was superb we had a table of 10 people and food was served promptly and everyone enjoyed their dishes. The wine...

Amazing fine dining spot. Extensive wine list that the owner himself has imported from France and the food is really great. Pricey spot but perfect for a special occasion.

Although this is on the edge of an open air shopping precinct, it still has a nice atmosphere both inside and out. The food is lovely with a good range of starters and main courses. The dessert menu even includes things other than the stand chocolate mousse, creme brullee. There is an exhaustive wine list at all prices, so if... More

Service was quick, and food very flavourful. Would eat here again. The wine list was quite daunting, as the establishment is really a wine bar- good if you know your wines. Probably not a place to take small children.

This restaurant is the best cuisine in the west coast of the island. They are always innovating and the food is a very fine French food with an excellent wine cellar. There is no other restaurant in Blackpool River that can compete with them. Excellent and I recommend this restaurant to everybody. You will never be disappointed

Have visited this place several times for lunch over the last few years and have revisited twice recently. They provide an excellent 2 course lunch of the day, either fish or meat main course, for either 350 or 420 rupees (fish being more) with a dessert.Can definitely recommend, the wine by the glass is good too.
