In a nutshell: go there, eat there! We had a very nice evening with delicious traditional food! The staff was very friendly and explained everything in detail what the local cuisine offered. We had the buffet - maybe too much to eat. ;-)

We turned up without a booking and were given a table no problem. Great explanation of the dishes for the buffet and we really enjoyed the food too. Fab place. Good value too for Saint Gilles.

This lovely, atmospheric restaurant is a must-visit on your trip to Réunion! My family and I dined here in the evening (2 adults, 3 children) and everyone agreed their meals were delicious. Even I managed to find something I liked out of the wide variety of dishes, and I am an extremely fussy eater! It was a superb introduction to... More

My wife and I and our three children (aged 13, 11 and 8) ate here when on holiday in Reunion in April. It was a great way for all of us to experience the creole cuisine of the island. There was an excellent choice of dishes and even our very fussy daughter enjoyed the rice and canard a la vanille... More

We had a dinner there a couple of days ago and the food was amazing. To quote my foodie husband: "That lamb melted in my mouth". It's a nice place with local Crealean flavor and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Make sure to go there at least once when you are on Reunion.

Now called Bistrot Case Creole. Incredibly good food prepared by an artistic chef. At lunch there arr typical local dishes for only 8.5 Euros. A takeaway box can cost 7 so it is very good value. The place is very well designed, quite big and clean. In the evening there is a big buffet for just 19 Euros. For something... More

We ate here in August 2013 - one of the best meals i've ever had! The Creole food looked amazing, but we went for the daily specials on the french menu - really interesting food, creatively prepared with lots of presentational touches.

You'd better feel hungry if you decide to eat in this restaurant since the buffet offers a wide variety of "carry" and "rougails" for a reasonable fee (19€/p : fish, pork, shrimps, rooster, beef, smocked sausage,...). Beans and "Gratin de Chouchou" are among the side orders. The food is delicious and the waiters cater to every whim. A good place... More
