The Le Manta is just a step away from the nice L'ermitage les Bains beach and convinces with a nice tropical interieur, friendly service and good food. We went there for lunch and arrived just before the kitchen closed (2pm) and shared a salad with grilled king prawns and a Cari Gambas, which could have been a bit more spicy,... More

This is a nice place to eat, but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is cool, but the food a bit mezzo. We tried to organize a birthday meal, but the staff showed zero interest in doing anything special. It's quite popular, so I guess they don't feel the need to do anything better.

The restaurant is located in a calm place. At night the street is not very well lit up but that doesn’t entail any problem at all since the place is in general quite safe. The atmosphere inside is very good thanks to the adequate decoration and illumination. The lights are very nice and decorative. Besides, the music is not too... More

We dropped in at 14h00 one day, and were told we could have drinks but the kitchen was closed. In fact, they were serving the last lunches as we got our cocktails. We booked a table for that evening and returned after dark. The place was completely transformed by many, many lights of different sources... quite enchanting. Our starters were... More

As we only expected a beach restaurant ,we got a delicious surprise in the restaurant La Manta. Good food in a very nice location, it was our own good experience But if we would have been looking for a gastronomic table, we certainly would have been disappointed. The best beach restaurant we ever visited so far

A very nice restaurant in l'hermitage. The place was really nice: not directly on the beach but just in front of it. The atmosphere was cool, with tables in a nice garden full of lamps. The food was very good, both fish and creole local curry. The personal was very charming and English speaking (not usual at all in reunion!).... More

The prawn salad and the grilled bream were very good. Lovely garden setting with friendly service. We do not speak French, so it was very nice that the owner spoke good English and did not laugh at our attempts at French! Very pleasant experience.
