My brother and I have visited this restaurant many times while staying next door at the Merville Beach Hotel. This October we are staying at the hotel for our 7th time and we are looking forward to having some meals at Napoleons Bistro where the staff are very welcoming to us.

We went there on a saturday night. We arrived slightly before 7pm and left at around 8.30pm, and we were the only ones there the whole time. The menu is very short and simple. My girlfriend had the beef fillet steak while I had butterflied chicken breast in a parsley marinade (persillade). Both dishes came with a serving of salad... More

The atmosphere is tranquil, the service unobtrusive and good. I had fish, which was fine, but did not live up to the fish I ate on a previous visit when Catherine Moore was present. Her style is very evident in the menu, but when she is not there the food lacks the touch of genius that makes a great chef.

Once you find this place you would want to return again and again. We had Wi-Fi problems at our abode and the staff at Napoleons had no problem in helping us with connecting, restarting and using their Wi-Fi on and off during our 4 week stay in Mauritius. We had quite a few meals during our stay, and all were... More

The Napoleon is right next door to the Marville Beach Hotel and as another reviewer said "what a hidden gem"! You could easily miss this restaurant and that would be a great shame, I had the fillet steak having eaten seafood for last 3 days, so pleased I did, as it was perfectly cooked and great tasting, as was the...

This restaurant is set in beautiful gardens, which makes it perfect for a relaxing meal. The menu has everything from quiche, salad and mussels. There was a big group of us and all the food looked amazing and no one was disappointed. The service however, is a little slow; but, everything came at the same time and the waiters were... More

We were in a group of 5 pax. The bistrot was empty except for our table on a Wednesday nite. Most of us had a great spaghetti arrabiata. Our entree was eggplant salad on toast. Excellent food though a bit on the expensive side per head..

Great ambiance and awesome food. The spinach feta quiche was incredibly good and the creme brûlée was how it should be. Very friendly staff and really something you should know or read on tripadvisor!

A charming, tucked away, garden setting. Varied menu, selection of wine (or take your own). Friendly and personalised service. Very nice place for lunch, only open for evenings on Friday and Saturday.
