Attention foodie tourists: Eating out in Mauritius


On the island of Mauritius in Chamarel Village, there are plenty of small family restaurants where tourists can stop and sample the delicious local fare.

Also, a number of authentic Chinese-Mauritian restaurants will be found on all the high streets, and traditional Indian food sold by hawkers can be found on just about every roadside or in the markets. Look for the longest queue, and you’ll be sure that the food at the end of it is good!

But why stop there?

Follow the Tea Route

The “Tea Route” is a must when you visit Mauritius. A treat for the senses, this aromatic journey through the world of tea starts at Domaine des Aubineaux, takes you to the factory of Bois Cheri at Rivière des Anguilles, and finishes at Domaine Saint Aubin.

Institut français de Maurice

The French Institute (formerly the Charles Baudelaire Cultural Centre) situated behind the Rose-Hill Police Station is the place for cultural activities with both Mauritian and invited foreign artists. The Institute has a vast library, an office that offers guidance to students who want to study abroad, and a restaurant on site. Their program can be viewed online.

Rum Factory

La Rhumerie de Chamarel distils rum from its own sugar cane planted in fields nearby. Visit the impressive copper vats used to make the delicious rum and different rum liqueurs. The on-site tasting will help guests to discover their favorites, which can then be purchased directly from the distillery. There is a restaurant on site serving stunning meals in a truly beautiful location. Why not try one of their exotic rum cocktails to end the day?
