This restaurant is now called the Frenchie's Café. The new owner has refitted the restaurant and it has become now a well known restaurant for its music, DJ's night and parties.

Nice setup with the covered roof – weird people are allowed to smoke underneath, meat too cooked + asked for sauce on the side only it was on the side and on it, nice music, they created a nice bar area with high chairs which allows you to have a drink or dine there. Mauritian tapas was interesting and tasty.

We have been going in most mornings for an iced coffee and in my opinion they are the best we have had around here. If you are having some food I would recommend the burger. Nicely cooked and well served. Service is friendly and on time.
