Chez Rosy it’s all the south and Gris-Gris in a restaurant. It is the most tourist restaurant in Mauritius that is not a tourist trap. Why? Already the restaurant does not pay commissions to taxis to take their customers, so we pay the real price that we are local or tourist. Then the restaurant relies on the quality of its cuisine to attract the hungry. And it works! Their traditional Mauritian dishes are excellent and perfumed with marine iodine from the coastal breeze.

Ah youn in Flic-en-Flac illustrates well this Mauritian saying: “the Chinese of Mauritius are more Chinese than the Chinese of China”. Why?

The cuisine is at the height of Constance’s gastronomic reputation, which organizes the Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival every year. Unbelievable. Contact +230 402 3636
