Really delicious, home style food, made the Mauritiun way. May is very friendly and welcoming, serving everyone with love.

I will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Mauritius.

Really delighted to have a meal at this very homely restaurant. It's a fixed price menu that comes with plenty of tapas-sized dishes to eat with a nice bit of rum and desert.

This “restaurant” is at the front of May’s home so there are only three tables - make sure you book in advance.

There is no menu with May cooking whatever is in season or she feels like. There are lots of little dishes which all come out at once. On the night we were there we had lots of vegetable dishes, a chicken curry, octopus, fish and chorizo dishes (all up about 15 dishes), steamed rice and a couple of popadums. We also had a pre-dinner rum concoction and three after dinner rum aperitifs (the almondy rum one was particularly yummy). All up the cost was just over 2,000Rs I think.

By the end of the night we were chatting to the other two couples who were French. We have very limited French and they spoke little English, so there was lots of miming which, by the end of the night (& after a few rums), got increasingly inventive and hilarious.

In all honesty the food wasn’t amazing, but we had a wonderful night & I would definitely recommend at night at May’s home.

What a lovely place. This restaurant is at the owner's home. Literally she cooks in her kitchen. there is no menu to choose food, you eat what she cooks for you. this a very good idea and restaurants should do similar service. You have a feeling you came to visit your Mama in the evening, specially because she comes to the table and she has a conversation with you. Don't miss this place when you are in Flic en Flac but make sure you call and book a table.
