Reviewed 23 November 2019 via mobile

I spent a lovely evening with my husband at l’Orangine. The food - starters, mains as well as dessert - was exceptional. Extremely tasty and beautifully presented. The atmosphere of the restaurant right by the pool is very nice as well. The only thing that...annoyed me quite a lot was that I, being a woman, was given a menu without prices for the dishes. My husband on the other hand received a regular one. I find this terribly old fashioned and sexist. News flash: Nowadays women earn money and are quite capable of picking up the check. I would strongly recommend you to reconsider this practice.More

We were luck to dine at L'Orangine due to a big event at the Lux hotel. All I can say is that the food, and the service, is absolutely exquisite. We ate there for three nights so got a very good selection of the menu....We could absolutely not fault any of the meals. I highly recommend the rabbit saddle and the duck breast though; certainly two of my favourite dishes! The service was also impeccable. Being English it isn't always easy to get by on Reunion island, but ALL of the staff at L'Orangine gave their best to communicate with us and make sure we were always welcome. Although L'Orangine is not cheap, it is highly recommended. A real food experience.More

Although expensive and that they are charging fine dining prices its a very nice evening dinner out at Lorangine. The ambience was lovely with views over the pool. We appreciated the effort from the staff who were very charming an attentive. The starters were reasonable...but small for my husband's appetite. The fish he had for the main course was good but my duck was really good. One of the best portions of duck I have eaten in fact! We didn't have dessert but the cheeseboard instead. The waiter showed us a few lovely cheeses, including some local ones.However, when he served the portions they were the size of my finger nail! I asked for more but I didn't get any more. The Anjou wine went perfectly with the meal. All in all a pleasant evening was had by all.More

A absolutely beautiful elegant restaurant overlooking the pool. VERY SPECIAL AMBIANCE. I had my BIRTHDAY DINNER & STAY at THIS HOTEL. Staff are fantastic & presentation is fantastic & they make you feel VERY SPECIAL. TOTAL DISASTER was the CRAYFISH which was the MAIN COURSE...! NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR THE PRICE or THE CALIBRE OF THE HOTEL & NEARLY WRECKED MY BIRTHDAY DINNER if the other things were not so special that they made up for it and saved the day. BUT IN SPITE OF THIS THIS IS ONE of the BEST & MOST LUXURIOUS OF THE HOTELS ON THE ISLAND, which does not have a lot of 5 star hotels.More
