Owner's description

On warm evenings sit out on the sun deck and watch the sun go down, as you enjoy magnificent food, romantic evenings and the true Mauritian warm hospitality. The menu opens with the Soupe De Crabe, Soupe Mulligatawny and the classic Vichysoise. The Camembert Aux Amandes (deep fried with almonds, sesame seeds, served with red currant jelly is more than tempting as is the Pate de Choux a L'Epinard et Saumon Fume  (choux pastry filled with spinach, smoked salmon and cottage cheese).

Main courses include Fillet of Sole, Line-Fish, Langoustines and Prawns and the delicious Gratin Madame Mauvis (medley of shelled seafood cooked in sherry and gratinee). Specialities include Rougaille de Boeuf, slices of fillet cooked with onions, garlic, ginger, chilli and fresh coriander, Prawn Chicken Curry, a typical Mauritian curry with Chinese and French influence and the Crevettes Calamare Creole, prawns and calamari the Creole way with coconut milk.

    The very best restaurant in Durban. We miss going there on our trips to KZN. Only for a finely tuned palate.
    Average food, dreary decor needing an update, and restrooms that has seen better days. By international standards, the cuisine is certainly not French, in fact it makes one wonder if the owner is really French, as he proclaims to be. He did not sound French, but more to the point: the food was a mix of South African and Mauritian Creole, not unpalatable, but certainly not in true French style. This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant and the menu also has not ever changed; it is staid and boring. In general everything is overpriced by South African standards, and the wine prices are preposterous considering a lot of the wines can be purchased just around the corner ar a quarter of the prices. It is not like one wants to actually pay a premium to sip one's wine in an outdated house that hasn't seen a decorator's touch this century! We won't be back.
    My parents have been going to Ile Maurice from its inception in Durban Town (when it was called St Geran). As vegetarians we have had the same meal, starters to end for over 30 years. Every time the quality of food is superb. Still my all time favourite restaurant.

    The French cuisine and experience of dining in the finest restaurant in Durban remains the benchmark in Durban. The food is exquisite and well matched to an excellent wine collection. A great evening guaranteed.

    Ile Maurice, You must either have been arrogant, ignorant or just plain rude! The restaurant compared to any other is in a league of its own. The food is incredible. That being said, I don’t know if you are aware but they are still humans preparing the meals, not automated chefs, so mistakes are bound to happen as Im sure even you yourself make on a daily basis. Its patrons like you that expect the world then still complain about the price, I would have done the same and thrown you out, as your support is defintely not needed. There are plenty of well educated people out there able to enjoy the finer, delicious things in life and willing to pay a little extra. I myself have had a bad meal there, but love the whole experience and atmosphere, plus the food is amazing and the owners a pleasure to converse with. Even on its worst day it’s still far better than any of the mediocre restaurants Im sure you love and enjoy.
