Went for lunch with my business partner after i saw it being top rated on TA. A very warm welcome with a cocktail to start the experience. Food is pretty authentic and true to creole cooking. The lady running the place is a true entertainer and fully assumes her ´creole ´ identity ( whereas many on the island try to... More

We wanted to taste real Mauritian food (not Indian or Chinese) and this place was a gift from heaven. It's hard to find but don't quit! When you arrive, the place is beautiful, the food is AWESOME in all senses, and the owner Marie Christine is one of the best hostess I've ever met in my trips.

Found this place in a tour that was organised by my company and I felt in love with it. The Ambiance was just great and the owner and her mom are just charming.

A very good authentic Mauritius food restaurant. The owners are excellent hosts! We were able to participate in a cooking lesson from the owner.

Food is great. Portion is very big, so better come very, very hungry. We drove and Waze brought us up to the little lane that leads to this place. Drive slow if you're not familiar with the place because it's quite easy to miss.

We were greeted warmly by Christine, and was provided with snacks and a welcome drink while they prepare our meal. The meal was great.. however, note that it is less subdued compared to Indian curries, which is the true creole food as explained by Christine. She also explained each dish and constantly checked on us if we require anything else.... More

Tucked away down a quiet side road in Moka, it would be easy to miss this place. But what a shame if you did! We went as part of a tour group and were treated like royalty! They serve genuine Mauritian food here - we had a Creole chicken curry, served with lentil sauce, pumpkins, sweet white cabbage and a... More

We had the good fortune to get a reservation at short notice at this most charming restaurant. As Mauritians, living in London, we were eager to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. The curry octopus was out of this world, along with the duck and chicken curry. Three amazing dishes cooked to perfection, even my hard to please mum... More

Opened only from Monday to Friday for lunches only. Give us a phone call for availibility. A Creole traditional restaurant in Mauritius, a unique know-how .... Between the famous Rougaille Creole sausage, cang mocked cabbage and salted fish, traditional curry chicken creole, or broth 'zourite and coconut chutney' Escale Creole remains the TABLE where you and your guests can make the unique experience of a "real Manze Lacaze" , hearty and generous !!! In a large veranda, we can serve between 2 and 50 seats on large tables with traditional gingham tablecloths. Our "table d'hote" allows each client to help himself laid flat on the table well Mauritian way, so that everyone is free to be reserved if desired
