The following sales terms are communicated to each customer every time they processes an order. Processing an order implies that the customer adheres to the Terms and Conditions of Sale.

Reservations We advise you to place your order a minimum 5 days before your preferred date so that we can process with your request for reservation fully and provide you with the package on your proposed date. All reservations are subjected to availability.

We cannot guarantee that all photos advertised and used on our website illustrate the exact meals, offering, restaurants and packages as offered by the service provider. The only purpose of these photos is to give the customers a better idea of the product/package. The descriptions and illustrations on any of our content and our website are given as approximate representations only, but in good faith.

Restaurants.mu aims to be accurate on the details shown on its website and in its offers but we make no commitment about the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the Material or about the results you will obtain from using our Website and Material.

Provision of Service No compensation of any kind or responsibility can be taken due to circumstances beyond our or our supplier?s control. For example, when we have to notify a change to your arrangements after you attend the meal, or we or our service provider cannot offer your arrangements in full or in part as agreed, or you suffer any loss, injury, food allergy, good poisoning, or damage of any description to person or personal property. A circumstance beyond our or our supplier?s control is unpredictable or avoided, even after taking all due care, includes but is not limited to war, terrorist activity, civil unrest, industrial disputes, acts of god, natural or nuclear disaster, high level of water, technical or maintenance problems and bad weather situations or forecasts. Restaurants.mu also reserves the right to cancel scheduled packages at any time in the event of hazardous weather conditions or unforeseen operational problems. We reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone at its sole discretion.

Prices Please refer to the product description for the price of each specific Product or Package. All prices are listed in Mauritian rupees and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate at the time of your order. Packages once sold are not exchangeable and non-refundable. All products/packages are final, and no changes to the Conditions, Highlights or description are allowed. These will be clearly specified at the time of booking and on the confirmation email. Prices are based on the local tariffs offered by our service providers.

Unless detailed otherwise in the specification of the activity, these prices do not include supplements, transportation, drinks, meal upgrades, and do not include any other service which is not detailed in the specification of the package.

Payment System & Payment Methods Restaurants.mu uses the MIGS MasterCard secure online payment system operated by the Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB). Online Reservations can only be made with a valid credit card. If you do not want to use our payment system or do not own a credit card, you can always contact us directly to discuss alternative payment methods. MasterCard guarantees a high level protection when providing your credit card number. Information regarding the latter is not accessible to third parties and is not communicated to us and is only kept on the secure database of MasterCard. The order confirmed by the client will be considered valid only when approved by "MasterCard". After placing your order, your credit card shall automatically be debited with the full amount due upon logging out of your account. Once the payment is cleared, you will receive an automated confirmation email of your order. If MasterCard does not approve the transaction, the order will be automatically canceled and the client will be informed by email.

For web orders, full payment by credit card is required to make a reservation and only credit cards are accepted. Credit cards which are accepted:

  • VISA
  • MasterCard

It is also possible to pay by bank transfer directly to Restaurants.mu's bank account or MCB Juice or have the payment done directly in cash or debit card at the registered office of Restaurants.mu.

Under no circumstances will Restaurants.mu be liable for any kind of commission that your bank might charge you for payment paid to Restaurants.mu.

Booking Confirmation Once you have made the payment, a Booking confirmation e-mail will be sent immediately after you "Place Order" for which it is important for us to have an accurate email address. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail within the next 15 Minutes of placing the Order, you should contact our Customer Services department at [email protected].

Our Booking Confirmation e-mail is a proof of a valid booking and will contain relevant information about the booking and particulars of the restaurant or services concerned. Please read and check carefully all the information contained in your Booking Confirmation e-mail to ensure that it conforms to your reservation made. If there are any changes to the details, we request that you inform us immediately by email, phone or by contacting our Customer Service department.

You will be required to print and produce your Booking Confirmation when you check-in at the restaurant or at the establishment.

Open Voucher Validation We offer our customer the option to order an open voucher for a specific Restaurant Package or other related services. The open voucher can only be used for the specific product for which it has been booked as detailed on the order confirmation and on the voucher itself.

Please note that the Open Voucher is only valid for use for the relevant product or service for which it was purchased and is valid for a period of 3 months from the day of its purchase; meaning, that the product or package purchased must be used within a maximum period of 3 months from the date of purchase.

In case the customer fails in using the open voucher during the period of 3 month, and fails to dine or claim their product/package or for any other services for which it has been purchased, the open voucher will no longer be of any use or value and it will be void. In case of a void open voucher, the customer will not be entitled to receive any refund nor compensation against the payment made to purchase the voucher. This is why we strongly encourage our customers not to wait for the last moment in order to use the open voucher.

Using an Open Voucher for reserving a product In order for us to process your reservation request in full and provide you with the service/product on your preferred date, we strongly advise that you will place your request for reserving the service or product a minimum of 5 days before the date on which you would like to go/use the product or service offered.

Please note that all reservations are subjected to availability. In case you request to reserve a product or service for a specific date less than 5 days prior to the date on which you would like to go/use it, we cannot guarantee that your reservation will be confirmed or will be done successfully. Accordingly, for late reservations requests made during the period of the last 5 days of the open voucher validation period (referring to the last 5 days out of the 3 months period), we cannot guarantee that these reservations will be confirmed or done successfully. In case Restaurants.mu will not be able to confirm such a late reservations requests, and due to this open voucher not being used during the period of 3 months of its validation, the customer will not be entitled to any refund nor compensation against the payment made to purchase this voucher. This is because it is in the customer responsibility to reserve the product or service on an earlier stage, while providing Restuarants.mu at least 5 days in order to confirm the booking. We thus strongly encourage our customers not to wait for the last moment in order to use the open voucher.

Complaints and problems In the unlikely event that you have any reason to complain or in case you experience any problems with your product or service, this must be brought to the attention of the relevant supplier immediately so that action can be taken to remedy the problem.

Unfortunately some problems cannot be dealt with quickly. If you are still dissatisfied, you must write to us within 14 days of the meal/event/experience, mentioning your booking reference and full details of your complaint. The assistance we provide to resolve your complaint is provided on behalf of our service providers in our capacity as agents only. We will do our best in order to claim a full refund or compensation from our supplier on your behalf.

Please note that if you fail to follow this simple complaints procedure, Restaurants.mu will not be able to claim the refund or compensation on your behalf, and accordingly you will not be entitled or will lose the refund or compensation which you could have redeemed.

Damage to or theft of personal belongings Restaurants.mu cannot be held liable if a client's personal belongings are damaged or stolen during his or her visit to the restaurant or at the designated location. It follows, therefore, that Restaurants.mu is not obliged to compensate its clients for damages in this regard. Each client has a personal responsibility to take due care and attention by keeping close watch on his or her personal belongings and to refrain from bringing valuables.

We shall accept no responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, personal property or valuables. Insurance to cover the loss of baggage and valuables is also highly recommended and is not in any means included in any of our products or any other services.

Refund of processing fees In case of any cancellation due to any reason of any booking made with Restaurants.mu; Restaurants.mu is not liable to refund the credit card processing fees nor any other bank fees associated to the purchase made by the customer. The customer will only receive the applicable refund calculated as per the Restaurants.mu refund policy, after deducting the fees detailed hereof.

Refunds applicable for Non-eligible customers Some of the discounted deals, offers and packages offered on Restaurants.mu do have limiting conditions on the number of participants, type of food, meal times etc. These conditions form integral part of each package or offering. As such, it is in the responsibility of the customer to comply with these basic requirements, acknowledge the package conditions and limitations.

Liabilities Restaurants.mu offers a range of services, a restaurant directory, reviews, content and products while also acting as a booking agent for the relevant service providers for discounted meal packages and/or any other services.

You must not behave in a way which may cause distress or annoyance to others or which may create the risk of danger or damage to any property. In any of these cases mentioned hereof, all insurances will be invalidated and you will not have any entitlement to a refund, compensation or to cover any of your expenses of any kind whatsoever. In case of damages or loss caused by you or any member of your group, you will be held responsible and be liable for full payment for these damages.

Litigation Any claim or dispute will always be dealt with the best attention and care, as the person that takes the pains of submitting his claim is presumed to do so in good faith. In case of litigation, the client will at first deal with the company for an amicable solution of the problem. If a solution cannot be found, the Mauritian legal system will be the sole competent legal system.
