We were visiting the sugar museum, and we went for a meal first.

First, we really enjoyed the environment. The food was delicious. I ordered the signature dish, the Mauritian mixed plate.
If you want to sample several Mauritian meals and tasty flavours, go for this one!

Sharook, our waiter was super nice. We did enjoyed his company, service and some tips, as we just arrived to the island.

Plus we loved their virgin mojito and also samples of various types of sugers once you get your coffee ;-)

Definitely a must place to vistit!

My husband and I just returned from Mauritius and after reading the fantastic reviews here we made sure we stopped at Le Fangourin for lunch. We had a great experience, the staff were friendly and attentive, quick to respond to our needs and questions, and the food was excellent, with a creative and interesting menu with lots of choices, all with a Mauritian/creole twist to them.

We were given a bread basket and crispy garlic bread to start our meal, along with some tasty dips. The goat cheese and roasted vegetable salad we started with was fresh and the different chutneys that came with it were super tasty, especially when eaten together with the goat cheese. For mains we shared two of their Mauritian specialties, the dry venison curry and the Mauritian platter, which consisted of a chicken and octopus curry. Both were our first sampling of Mauritian cuisine and were delicious, flavourful and well prepared, and served with a great variety of accompaniments. The basmati rice with raisins and herbs was particularly yummy. And the highlight was the dessert, I had the mango mousse and it was beautiful, both presentation and taste.

Overall a great experience and a nice atmosphere in the lovely garden. I only wish we'd had more time on our trip so we could have returned to try some of the other fantastic sounding dishes on the menu! We will be back on our next visit to Mauritius for sure.

After visiting the botanical garden, we were heading to the Sugar factory but were hungry so decided to go to the restaurant there first.
We chose two plates of Mauritian delicacies (one vegetarian one and a normal one) to split. It was delicious and our kind waiter Sharook, explained what everything was.
Dessert was also delicious! My fiancé had the chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream. When Sharook noticed that he had almost finished his vanilla ice cream he asked if he wanted more! Who can say no to that?
All in all we had a great lunch and Sharook was happy to answer our questions. We will definitely be going back there this vacation!

This turned out to be our favourite restaurant in Mauritius. Actually we went here 3 times, because the food was this yummy. I also want to highlight the vegetarian dishes. There was a good variety of vegetarian food and not only the standard Mauritien veg curry. The drinks are also very good and the desserts are definitely a must
