We had booked a table at this spot under the trees, overlooking the sea, following recommendations on Trip Advisor. It is slightly unusual as it doesn't have any walls or a ceiling and your table is on the sand. The kitchen is in a cabin/shed and the store/fridge is a cooler box in the boot of a car. Although we arrived late our table was waiting for us and they couldn't have been more welcoming. The food was delicious and so fresh - best calamari we've ever tasted and the prawn curry to die for! Vicky and his wife are such a lovely couple who produce the best and freshest food - we went back again later in the week and once again had delicious food and fish cooked for us which we had fished ourselves (arranged by Vicky). Highly recommended!

Recommended by a whole load of people we could not believe the quality of the meal from such a simple kitchen. Just a food truck but serious cooking and amazing quality. Great service by cool friendly locals. The lobsters were fresh and delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Having been in Mauritius for four months now and having tried roughly three dozen plus restaurants, this Cabane Du Filao is the high water mark. I love the fact that the menu consists of what Vickie catches that day, nothing is frozen. Trish, the cook, makes the best calamari and lentils I have ever had. While I have traveled the world for a living I seldom leave reviews, the restaurant is an exception. My wife and I have eaten here at least nine times and will be back another six during our additional two months here. Please believe me that whichever five star resort you maybe at, this small restaurant will exceed anything that you may have prepared at a hotel feeding the masses. Don't miss the chance to eat here!

Our friends recommended this place for rabbit fish as the best fish they’ve ever tasted. They were not wrong! This little spot with friendly hosts leaves a great impression, the fish was delicious, even the skin! They even put beers in beer holders - that’s a nice touch. It’s a quiet place along the coast with a breeze. Such a pleasant experience!

After spending just over 2 weeks travelling and eating around mauritus I can say without a doubt this was one of my absolute favourites. The calamari in particular was standout. This is a no frills place with a food truck vibe located close to the beach - within 10 minutes walk of White Oaks Villas. I loved everything about it though; the hospitality, the food, everything. I was so sad when we left the area and everywhere from that point was measured against it! 100% recommend for the best octopus curry, calamari and flambayed banana.

First tried this amazing lunch spot 10 years ago and nothing much has changed. Don’t be fooled by appearances. Yes, the kitchen is a shack and yes you will be sat at a folding table on plastic chairs, but You will be told what items on the menu are available. It’s fish or fish. Fresh locally caught. Octopus curry is a favourite as is the cheesy prawn dish. All sorts of prawns at all sorts of prices. All delicious and such a treat if you just want to escape one of the large hotel holiday factories. Oh and the flambé bananas are pretty good too!

Whether you're staying nearby (e.g. at the Recif Attitude) or just passing by, you should definitely make time for a stop at this simple, but delicious beach restaurant. The white tuna curry was amazing - one of the best meals I had on the island. The owner and his wife were really friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. This was what we came to Mauritius for!

The lovely welcoming owners served us incredible octopus, prawn and white tuna curry. The fried calamari and mango salad were delicious. It was so good we went straight back the next day for another dinner. Easily the best food we ate on Mauritius!

Full of attention given by the owners. We had king prawns and a red octopus curry. It was delicious, fresh and spicy but not too much. We decided to add one extra dish…even being full! We let he owner to choose for us and we were served with shrimps and cheese….an absolutely fabulous creamy dish! You can’t go without tasting this one! We have completed our meal with banana flambéed….this is the best caramelised version we have had! An other must. It is highly recommended, with the Alizée, sea view.
