The story is beautiful. Alongside the traditional wooden house of Mon Repos stands a vintage car shed. This is where we honour the cuisine of the domain's aunt, whose recipes were found in an old book.
The quaint atmosphere is emphasised by wooden benches, and black-and-white photographs of Mauritius. A waitress with an infectious smile serves traditional dishes whose scents will enthral you: crab tartar, calamari flower fondant, and lamb shoulder with thyme sauce, fish curry, chicken in cumin, always served with rice, “grains” (red beans, lentils…) and achar, a hot pepper paste.
