From the delicious selection of French food to the amazing selection of Champagne and wine Ille Maurice is tops. Crab starter was outstanding and rabbit delicious. The crepe suzette is the best I have ever had. Ten out of ten

The food does not live up to the prices. R 265 TO R295 for an average curry served with lentils is too much to pay. Langoustines we were told are R155 EACH. Prices are just not justified.

Difficult to answer to this comment. We try our best to serve a quality product in a classy environment. It all depends what one usually eats and where. Tough one.
