Le Paradis Epice

Published 07/23/2015

Fodor's Review

Opposite the botanic gardens (officially the Sir Seewoosagur Botanic Gardens, named after the country's first prime minister), this quirky eatery is the spot for lunch after a morning viewing giant water lilies and exotic plants. The interior is a knockout, with a huge petrified litchi tree as the centerpiece. Decor is eclectic, with many of the fittings and ornaments made from recycled materials purchased from the nearby Handicraft Artisan souvenir shop and workshop. Authentic Creole curries and Chinese dishes share the menu with light snacks, such as toasted sandwiches and paninis. Try the Mauritian fish curry with eggplant, the prawn curry, or an array of vegetarian curries. As the restaurant name suggests, this spice paradise is all about blending the island's flavors with the choicest ingredients—and at very affordable prices.
