With stunning vistas of Le Morne, the Black River Gorges, and a string of beaches, this attractive spot is where you come for food with a view. Named after the nearby village of some 700 people, Le Chamarel is the ideal lunch stop when exploring the beautiful southwestern corner of Mauritius. Dishes include such island specialties as salmi de cerf (venison casserole) and octopus curry, and more traditional French fare like filet de boeuf sace poivre (beet
fillet with pepper sauce). The dessert menu includes caramelized bananas, chocolate mousse, and coconut flan. Perched on a wooded hill, the indoor-outdoor restaurant has a thatched roof and a verandah suspended over the valley.
