A must go when going to St Gilles. Take some samosas and delicious cakes, and finish on the edge of the black rocks to watch surfers and the sunset ... that's true happiness. There is a great choice of Creole specialties: fried food, samosas, sweets peppers, etc., Very nice and typical spot of Reunion ... A must in St Gilles

Anytime I'm in the area, I'll walk by to get some "macatias" and they have the most amazing "samoussas"! I bought take-away lunch there a few times too, it was delicious.

Well we could see why there was always a steady stream of customers. Popular with locals and tourists alike. Excellent quality, wide variety and well priced. Closed over lunch time oddly...

Amazing samosas. They are really tiny and not at all greasy. They are packed full of tasty fillings. There's about 10 different varieties at €0.40 each. Delicious!

We visited this lovely boulangerie many times on our holiday in Réunion. Everything was always freshly baked using quality ingredients. My family fell in love with the delicious mixture of Creole and French cuisine the bakery offers. Also, I adore the traditional decoration of the building. You simply must visit Chez Loulou on your trip to Réunion!
