I cannot believe that it has been 3 months since my last post! I thought that since it is the beginning of the month I should get over my doubts and post this review.
This post has been written and rewritten about 5 times already and has been stuck in my drafts folder for over 2 months. So here you go today, my first restaurant review.
This is the first post in my new series of Restaurant Reviews. I have always wanted to do a restaurant review since the beginning of this blog. I therefore have decided to dive right in. I hope that these posts will give an insight into restaurants in Mauritius.
I would love to know your thoughts on this post and also let me know how I can improve, whether in terms of the structure or content. Also if you have any restaurant recommendations leave a comment below, I love trying new restaurants.
Alright, let the restaurant review begin.
La Table du Chateau is a small restaurant opening on to the gorgeous gardens of Chateau Labourdonnais. The restaurant is situated up North of the island in Mapou.
Entering the restaurant we were welcomed with a cold refreshing towel (perfect for that hot day!).
After ordering the food we were given bread baskets with some freshly baked bread loaves straight out from the oven which we gobbled up and was swiftly replaced by the staff.
The staff were very friendly catering to all our needs.
I ordered a “Grilled king prawns with garlic butter Asparagus risotto with Lobster coulis”. I was pleasantly surprised by the dish which was full of flavour. I do not usually like risotto but this Asparagus one was beautiful and not too soft.
We also had a “Bread fruit gratin and roasted Giant prawns Mesclum salad and Crustacean sauce”. The prawns were really soft creating a melted in your mouth sensation. I personally enjoyed the breadfruit gratin but it was not that great. Below is the image of the Giant prawns Mesclum salad and Crustacean sauce but sadly I cannot find an image of the breadfruit gratin.
I opted for a delicious crème brulée because its one of my favourite desserts and I had been craving it for such a long time. With that being said, crème brulée recipe is coming soon!
Overall the menu consisted of a few well selected desserts which all can enjoy.
Here is the “Crème Brulée à la vanille de Laboudonnais”:
I really enjoyed this dessert as it was tasty and fulfilled the criteria of the classic crème brulée dessert. The stick was not sweet enough on the other hand and I feel like it did not go with the Creme brulée
I do not remember the exact name for this dessert but it was a Banane Zenzli with Ice Cream in a Caramel sauce. I was not particularly a fan of this dessert although I enjoyed the sauce.
Adjacent to the restaurant is The Boutique which I visited, how cute are these soaps!
This was a great experience and a perfect getaway for a couple of hours. I definitely recommend a visit to La Table Du Chateau if you are in the area.
The only complaint I have is the waiting time for the food as well as how relatively dark the restaurant was. Nevertheless we had a calm and refreshing lunch.
- The Chateau visit costs are separate to the restaurant.
- Reserve your table at the restaurant prior to arrival is recommended by the staff, although you may choose to walk in.
I would love for you to let me know what you think. Have you been to La Table Du Chateau? How was your experience?
