This is truly one of the best restaurants in South- Africa. Offering excellent service and top quality dinning, I would personally rate this restaurant between 5-7 star. Food is impeccable not to mention the very professional customer service El Maurice offers.

Whenever we come to Umhlanga, we make sure we visit Ile Maurice. Walking distance to the Beverly Hills Hotel and Oyster Box. The staff and the owners are excellent, and the food is amazing....

Within walking distance of the Oyster Box and Beverley Hills hotels the owners of Ile Maurice have been able to charge well-heeled patrons premium prices for average food. A makeover, motivated staff and a better ratio of food quality to price is urgently needed.

We make a point of always dining at Ile Maurice whenever we visit Umhlanga. It never disappoints! The crab starter is exceptional, the curries a treat and they serve the best crepes Suzette in the galaxy. Love it and will certainly return.

The location with a partial sea view depending on the table is pleasant enough as is the welcome from the staff. The menu is extensive possibly too extensive . Portions are relatively small and presentation poor. Having visited Mauritius one might wonder about the authenticity...More

Best food hands down. A little pricey but worth it to celebrate a special occasion. The chef combines delicate combinations and each meal has been a sensational master piece. Well done.
