We popped in for dinner on a Saturday evening during the school holiday season. We were lucky to grab the last table available. The wine list is pretty extensive. The cuisine is creole/Mauritian which makes for really interesting dishes.

This is truly one of the best restaurants in South- Africa. Offering excellent service and top quality dinning, I would personally rate this restaurant between 5-7 star. Food is impeccable not to mention the very professional customer service El Maurice offers.

Whenever we come to Umhlanga, we make sure we visit Ile Maurice. Walking distance to the Beverly Hills Hotel and Oyster Box. The staff and the owners are excellent, and the food is amazing....

Within walking distance of the Oyster Box and Beverley Hills hotels the owners of Ile Maurice have been able to charge well-heeled patrons premium prices for average food. A makeover, motivated staff and a better ratio of food quality to price is urgently needed.

We make a point of always dining at Ile Maurice whenever we visit Umhlanga. It never disappoints! The crab starter is exceptional, the curries a treat and they serve the best crepes Suzette in the galaxy. Love it and will certainly return.

What a surprising and strange feedback. We have six different areas that we can sit our clients. Why would you not ask us to move you to another table ? That is what we do all the time to make sure that our guests have...More
