Traditional cuisine without any high flight or any surprise. Rice a bit overcooked. But table and chairs are too many it is quite impossible too speak each other how crowded it is

Terrible food, whilst Reunionese cuisine is amazing! I've spent some time in Reunion which has incredibly delicious food, and it's possible to make this food in Paris with products available here, so there's no excuse for this restaurant claiming a 'Ile de la Reunion' title and having terrible food. I was convinced that the restaurant owners were Mauritian, as were the kitchen staff, and Mauritian food doesn't resemble Reunionese cuisine at all, so it seems that the restaurant owner is just trying to deceive people by using the Reunionese title. The canard vanille used artificial vanilla and the sauce wasn't part of the recipe at all - just watered down tomatoes. The carri poulet was low quality meat and just some tomato sauce. The ananas cake was dry and old. Honestly a disgrace of a restaurant to call themselves Reunionese. Terrible value for money too - extremely overcharged. Don't waste your time - either find the recipe yourself and make it at home, go to Reunion itself, but this place is not Reunionese and has terrible food. Must blacklist this 'restaurant'.

Excellent meal shared with friends. Yes, the room is small and filled, so I do not recommend for a romantic meal. Quality products.

We stumbled across this Mauritian restaurant exploring the side streets around our hotel. It was fabulous, really enjoyed the wine the food and the service was exceptional. So friendly, informative and attentive. Top marks for this one!

We found this in a book of the 'best restaurants in Paris' in our hotel. It was one of those books where each place pays to have a page in the book, so not an independent assessment.
Reunion is an island off the coast of Africa. The food is supposed to be typical of the island. Definitely not French cooking. We had an aubergine wrapped in pastry, kind of like a somossa, appetizer. My wife thought the egg plant was cut too thinly and disappeared into the dough of the wrap when it was cooked. I thought they were OK. We had the duck and it was fine. They serve it with three different spicy condiments - cucumber, tomato and I'm not sure what the third is, rice and a bean and lentil sauce for the rice. All quite edible. The place wasn't terribly busy on a Sunday night and the wait staff was not terribly friendly, but no real complaints.
There are a lot of restaurants in the area and it appeared that there was another restaurant with a similar name down the street that looked a lot busier, so maybe that would have been a better choice for this type of food, then again, maybe not.
