The best meals cooked in front of you
Hungry? We reckon the best way to work up an appetite – apart from lazing on the beach all day – is to sit and watch your dinner being made. There’s nothing like the sight, smell and sizzle of food being prepared with passion and skill to put you in the mood for an amazing meal. Here’s our pick of where to watch the action…
Without a doubt, the most spectacular meal to try at Heritage Resorts is the ‘Surf and Turf’ Teppanyaki style at Pan-Asian restaurant Gin’ja, where foie gras, wagyu beef and king prawns are grilled on the ‘Teppan’ in a unique culinary art. With mellow wood tones, black painted walls and subdued lighting, diners can sit around the open teppanyaki hotplate grill watching the chefs in action.
With so many options to choose from at LUX* Belle Mare, you could potentially experience a different meal cooked in front of you every day. At contemporary Chinese restaurant Duck Laundry try the Peking duck Dan Dan noodle or dim sum. Opt for some naan bread with something from the Tandoor at Amari by Vineet, or on selected days try something cooked in the Josper charcoal oven at Beach Rouge. Those with a sweet tooth should head to MIXE where various oriental breads, pastries and desserts are prepared in front of guests.
Restaurant Oasis at Trou aux Biches Resort & Spa
Open for breakfast and dinner, L’Oasis is the main restaurant of Trou aux Biches and has its own bar. Built on the edge of the main pool, it offers fantastic views of the sea and invites you to make a choice from an array of mouthwatering dishes offered at the extensive buffets. A unique walk-in wine cellar is accessible via a pathway of stepping stone set across the water, where you can make your own choice by browsing through the extensive selection. Set apart from the restaurant, a private gazebo built above the water is the perfect place for a romantic dinner under the star-studded Mauritian sky.
Le Horizon at Le Victoria
A meal by the beach is the perfect accompaniment to a day at Le Victoria. Open for lunch and dinner, L’Horizon restaurant evokes the atmosphere of an old-school fishermen’s village where you’re invited to sample fresh fish and seafood chosen from the best catches of the day. The restaurant features two distinct areas. According to your mood, you can eat under a large thatched roof strewn with fishing nets, or alternatively choose a small table set in the sand for the ultimate in beachfront views.
