What a charming little place in Pamplemousse. The manager was one of the most charming people we've met in a restaurant. He took interest in us, cooked us things to try that weren't on the menu, told us wonderful stories and made us feel like we were the most important customers he's ever had. The food was not bad -...

After having read all the positive reviews on 18 Cafe, we gave it a try and were a bit disappointed. Food was ok but nothing special and service was rather efficient and friendly but nothing more.

My friend and I have been at this cafe a couple of times and it has been a delightful experience each time we've been there.. We've tried both penne and tagliatelle with pesto sauce and penne with creamy tomato sauce and chicken and the food is just marvellous as always.. All the desserts we've tried there(some of them were pre-ordered)... More
