Wonderful diversion to visit old man le Clezios house in Moka. Great feeling of the true past in this refined yet shabby colonial home. Long back lawn and path down to the falls. Dont miss them. Great experience.

A good quality mean with Mauritian authenticity in a calm, relaxed setting overlooking beautiful grounds. Go back in time with a visit around the house which retains its old colonial charm. Good service, good food in beautiful setting.

It is an old residence that is like a museum with a restaurant. The furniture belongs to the previous owners and is worth seeing. I had a wonderful lunch at the balcony and enjoyed both the food and the beautiful garden. They serve regional creole...More

Old colonial style wooden residence situated near Moka. All original features and furniture worth seeing. Visited as part of a cruise shore excursion. Served local snacks and drinks at end of house and garden tour.
