Reasons to visit Mauritius:

Food Lover’s Paradise!


When? What? Where? No, that’ s not an English lesson but actual decisions when it comes to eating in Mauritius. Our island can easily be described as a food lover’s paradise.


Since the population of Mauritius comes from different ethnical backgrounds, these can be felt in the different dishes that one can enjoy on the island. Food is plentiful with something for each and everyone. Even vegans and people with special dietary requirements will find a dish to their taste.


Do I want a fancy meal in a cosy restaurant? Am I more into eating barefoot on a beach whilst enjoying the spectacular sunsets (that comes with being on a tropical island, by the way)? Am I interested into sharing a local family’ s meal at his place? Or am I a street food lover who enjoys a quick meal on a street corner surrounded by the locals? All these are possible in Mauritius. The choice is yours!! Food forms an integral part of the Mauritian culture and visitors to the island are always welcome to savour the different dishes that we have to offer. From spicy curries, creole dishes to Chinese food to the much loved dholl puri, you will be sure to enjoy your meal.


‘Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people eat together…’- Guy Fieri.


Let us invite you to treat your taste buds with all our Mauritian delicacies!
