This restaurant deserves full points on all fronts: ambiance, food, drinks and service are perfect! The location is stunningly beautiful. The tables are in the middle of a piece of forest with old tropical trees and make you feel like you are in a tree house. The lighting is just right and creates a super cosy atmosphere which makes this restaurant location very special. We ordered the chili bites, the smoked gambas with heart of palm salade and the grilled mini eggplant as starters. Everything to the point and a delight. Since we were not that hungry we wanted to share one main course (the brisket) which was not a problem for the staff. It was even served on two separate plates which we appreciated. The brisket was spectacular both in texture and taste, the sauce was a winner as well. Service was casual and very friendly!!! In case you stay at the Lux Grand Gaube this restaurant is an absolute must. In case you are passing by the town this is certainly worth a stop. Keep on rocking it Creole Smoke House!

We was staying in the Lux Grand Gaube under the all inclusive package in September. Although staying there for nearly two weeks we only managed to eat here once as there are many options to eat and when we did book or try to go there they was closed because of bad weather, so bare that in mind and go as early as you can if staying in the hotel to avoid disappointment. The menu is very good, a lovely selection, and everything tasted so nice that we ordered, you can get great pictures here to so don't forget to take some while you are there. The staff are very nice and helpful too. You will find it very hard to beat the unique quality of this restaurant eating under a big tree, it feels amaxing and the currys on offer were great too, i would wish for a return here one day.

we passed a lovely evening at the creole smoke house. the location of this restaurant is unique and stands out with its enchanted atmosphere. the service was very attentive, friendly and warmhearted and the food was very tasty and well presented. I can recommend the vegan thali to everyone who likes to eat a good curry and enjoys different flavours and spices. a special thank you to Jean-Christophe who ensured our well-being during the whole evening and made this a very special and memorable experience.

The smokehouse and BB's are only open for lunchtime, but provide a welcome break from the beach to chill out in the shade with a beer/cocktail and burger/ribs. The food was always excellent and service was even better. On our first visit we were taken into the kitchen and proudly introduced to everyone cooking and serving and made to feel special. Don't stay at Lux Grand Gaube without visiting the wonderful staff at the Smokehouse and BB's at least once.

The restaurant offers an excellent culinary experience with an authentic taste of New Orleans and an atmosphere that is unmatched. The ambiance at Creole Smoke House is very inviting and encourages one to linger. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, always available to ensure guests have an unforgettable time. The decor is charming and creates a pleasant atmosphere that complements the food perfectly. As for the food, I can only say that it is absolutely incredible. The dishes are prepared with great attention to detail and the finest ingredients. The portions are generous, allowing you to truly indulge. I highly recommend the pulled pork and ribs, which are tender, juicy, and melt in your mouth. In summary, Creole Smoke House is a must-visit for anyone in search of an exceptional culinary experience. The food, atmosphere, and service are top-notch and are sure to impress you. I highly recommend Creole Smoke House and hope that you have the opportunity to experience it for yourself soon.

Really nice spot for Lunch and very atmospheric dinner experience. We ate here for the majority of our lunches and particularly enjoyed the Burger which was made with quality mince and had a lovely smoked taste. I also like the vegan curry and the chicken and prawn curry. At night the restaurant has a very different vibe with cleaver lighting. You feel more like you are sitting in local restaurant rather than one attached to a resort. The service here is always excellent and the staff can't do enough for you.

We had one of the most amazing dinners ever at this unique venue, wow those trees and lighting. This was only matched by the phenomenal attentive service and delicious food. I can’t recommend this place enough. World class customer service and focus by the manager there “Jean Christophe”. Myself having grown up and experienced top level restaurants I so impressed with this brilliant set up & nothing was a problem attitude. We’ll be definitely coming back.

Had amazing burgers and chips at BBs, the whole family enjoyed. Double trouble and the chicken burgers are fantastic. Only the veggie burger was not a favourite due to high oil content. Creole smoke House does not allow children , especially young noisy one like in our group, but the staff were happy to serve us as we seated ourselves on the benches away from the main restaurant. The staff are very friendly and a credit to Lux Grand Gaube.

This restaurant charmed us from the outset with its stunning atmosphere and exceptional seating under the palms, creating a serene dining oasis. The decor was tastefully done, enhancing the overall experience with its elegant simplicity. Chef Udesh and his team exceeded our expectations, skillfully accommodating our requests and delivering dishes that were both visually appealing and bursting with flavor. The catch of the day comes highly recommended; it was a showcase of the kitchen's ability to highlight fresh, local seafood with exquisite taste. The combination of the beautiful setting, the thoughtful service, and the outstanding culinary creations makes this restaurant a must-visit destination for anyone looking for a memorable dining experience under the stars.

What an unbelievable experience. Set within a beautiful Banyan tree, the smokehouse provided us with one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The service throughout was outstanding. Anish greeted us warmly and enthusiastically, and the manager, Jean-Christophe, ensured that we received nothing less than the very best food and drinks. We cannot recommend this place enough. It provides the very best of local Mauritian cuisine and service. Thank you!

Amazing food and superb service! Highly recommend eating at this excellent Mauritsian restaurant. The Creole BBQ is located outside under a beautiful big tropical tree close to the sea and the rum tasting treehouse. The bbq smell when you enter the area is amazing. We ate our first dinner at the Creole Barbeque and both the food and service was excellent. We stayed at Lux for 12 days and ate at Creole 4 times. I strongly recommend trying out the Baked Butternut and Smoked BBQ Pork Ribs 👏 We will surely miss this place and the staff. A big shoutout to the excellent service provided by the staff, and especially the enjoyable and lovely Vemaal who made the experience perfect! 🤴 Thank you, we hope to return soon In the future Michael

At the Creol Smoke House nestled amidst the Banyan trees at the Lux Grand Gaube Hotel, the experience transcends mere dining. The impeccable service and attentive staff elevate every moment, while the delectable cuisine, including the finest ribs I've ever savored, takes center stage. Dining under the open sky amidst the enchanting ambiance of the Banyan trees is truly a treat for the senses. A must-visit destination for those seeking exceptional hospitality and unforgettable culinary delights.

Had Anniversary dinner in Treehouse with rum tasting experience. Veemal and his crew ensured we had a fantastic experience and even brought in different food options not on menu. Service was exceptional, highly recommended

Whilst staying at lux grand gaube we ate most days at the creole smokehouse due to the delicious food and excellent service. Would like to thank our server Ashwan for providing great customer service and always going above and beyond. As well as chef ravij who always checked in that we were enjoying our meals and went the extra mile to make our honeymoon so special. This is truly the best restaurant experience we have had at any all inclusive resort. Both of these staff members are a credit to Lux and we hope to return soon.

This has to be in a unique setting, tables among the vertical roots of banyan trees, lit by lights in the trees. Ashwan and Daryl helped us have a very pleasant meal here. I had the ribs, some of the best i have tasted anywhere in the world. Even my wife, who does not like ribs tried a piece and promptly took one off my plate. As the kitchen is also nearby in the trees you get the wonderful aroma of cooking, just makes you want to eat more. We should have gone back a couple of more times but the Mauritian winter weather stopped us.
