The restaurant is outstanding. Tables (15?) all around, nicely decorated, a warm brise joins you by selecting the apero, the menu, the wines (mostly french with a touch of South African). We challenged maître Marc Chappot by ordering the degustation menu “six senses” 2 times in 3 days. It took some time at the 2nd day – but we enjoyed... More

We were staying at the hotel and ate here twice. The first time it was delicious and very special, with the beautiful setting round the pool. We are vegetarian and the chef made us something specially, which we really enjoyed. We were disappointed with the 12 euro cocktails which appeared to have very little alcohol in them! The second time... More

We stayed at the hotel for two weeks and dined at the restaurant twice. First time we had the suggested set menu with a starter combining a tartar of tuna and duck which sounded odd but worked very well; there was a biscuit with red pepper which seemed to offset the fish flavour with the meaty part very well. The... More

How lucky to be staying here and thus to experience the restaurant and its superb food throughout the day. My hotel review raves about the food, and I can only repeat how exquisite it was in THE most glorious setting. Three evenings was just not enough!

The restaurant has a lovely ambience, great location, really, really just lovely all over. The food was good, certainly some of the best in Reunion. As with everything on the island, do not start to compare it with France. Reunion might be a scoop of French ice cream in the middle of the Indian Ocean, but this restaurant isn’t Michelin... More

As we were staying right across the road, we were very excited to try the no 1 restaurant in Reunion. We were very impressed with the atmosphere and ambience of this restaurant. We could not fault the meal at all. Quite an innovative menu, based largely on seafood. Many other options too, of course. We felt the price was commensurate... More
