2. Palais de Barbizon
It’s not just delicious local dishes that draw visitors here. It’s the traditional Mauritian atmosphere, the welcoming hosts and the distinct setting. Located in the southern hills, its owner offers a daily changing set menu of old family recipes of chicken or fish with vegetables and rice, followed by dessert. All are prepared by his wife and served by his sister-in-law in a simple restaurant decorated by a colourful mural. Child-friendly yet romantic, it offers great value for money, too.
