We really enjoyed a nice casual lunch outside in the sun at the Espirit and definitely recommend the food.

Everythinh is perfect. Citron tart best ever. Owners very pleasant. I love the place and breakfast. You should be patients for delivery but it is worth of it.

Booked a table for the 1st of January as the restaurant was open for dinner. Upon arrival all tables were occupied and the answer was 'sorry we forgot' the waitress must have a short term memory as we booked the table 3 hrs prior to arrival. It took the staff 50 minutes to prepare 2 gin-tonics and at least 3 reminders that we had ordered a drink. Then finally we were 'transferred' to the booked table ... The GT's still hadn't arrived..... My partner spoke to the manager and was told 'it is coming now' well - 50 minutes later we had our drinks. Then dinner was ordered .... We waited for 2 hrs and yet again 3 reminders and a waitress who took our order asking us again whether we had actually placed our order ...... REALLY...! Guests around us left - also due to lack of service and their ordered food not being served ... Finally some plates arrived.... Cold food - tuna in curry coconut - one would expect some taste .... It was the most tasteless dinner and horrible service ever experienced. No apology of any kind; avoid the place rather eat from one of the may food trucks!! Esprit Libre: LOADS OF ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. Pity because of a beautiful setting.

Good evening Hanneke !
All the team and I apologise for the inconvenience about your diner at Esprit Libre. The night of the 1st was really busy for us because of a part of the team was missing. We will be really happy if you could come back for lunch or diner to prove you that the service and the food is really nice at Esprit Libre
Hope to see you soon and again I'm very very sorry about your night with us !
Best Regards

Gauthier
Restaurant Manager

After a long day of traveling from Dubai, we finally arrived at our villa nearby the restaurant. Since we were not in the mood of driving around much more, we decided to try Esprit Libre - good idea!

Fresh and nicely prepared food from fish over beef to vegeterian options with excellent service! On top of that, we loved the ambiance! Will surely be back!

We were the only clients for dinner. June is low season here so we had a "personal waiter" and a "personal chef"! Everything was very good. Service was quick and very friendly and food (fish expecially) fresh and well cooked. Dish presentation also was accurate and spectacular. Prices were more european than mauritian. About 30€ per person. But it worths!
