 nature of the island, with influences stretching from all over the world including France, Africa, China and India. One can experience and explore the world of food with a tempting array of multi-ethnic cuisines in the various table d’hôtes around the island.

Table d’hôte literally means “host’s table” and is referred to as a table shared by guests, where a meal is served at a specific time. By eating at a Mauritian home (or table d’hôte), you will experience the legendary hospitality of the Mauritian people and enjoy a traditional home-style cooking meal around a communal table, enabling you to sample truly authentic Mauritian cuisine whilst spending time with ‘family’, listening to stories from your hosts about the past and reviving childhood memories. Truly a unique dining experience in the true sense of the Creole tradition!

The experience begins as soon as you arrive at the local Mauritian home, where the host will impart her knowledge on Mauritian cooking, which largely revolves around choosing the right ingredients, all of which are hand-picked from the local village markets.

The menus of table d’hôte usually include mouth-watering crayfish and prawns straight from the ocean, venison
