The restaurants at Le Prince Maurice and Belle Mare Plage epitomise Constance’s culinary spirit combining traditional haute cuisine with the flavours and spices of the Indian Ocean.

Our menus are based around the very freshest local produce, whether it be fish caught that day or herbs and spices grown on the island. Across our restaurants we then prepare these delicacies using a variety of local and international culinary traditions.

Guests can indulge their taste for European fine dining one evening and then shake things up with a traditional Mauritian beach barbecue the next.

At Le Prince Maurice highlights include:

  • L’Archipel – Chef Michael Scioli celebrates local Mauritian cuisine with his lunchtime barbecues and light, spice-infused evening menu.
  • Le Barachois – One of the most romantic restaurant in the Indian Ocean floating on pontoons on the lagoon, diners can enjoy fresh-from-the-sea seafood cooked in local herbs and spices.
  • Laguna Bar – fans of Asian food should visit the new Asian Tapas Corner where Chef Li Junwei prepares the freshest sushi, noodles and dim sum.

Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival

 

In March every year Belle Mare Plage attracts foodies from around the globe to the famous Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival. Six European Michelin-starred chefs compete in teams alongside Constance chefs to create award-winning dishes using only local produce.
Our chefs are given the opportunity to work alongside these European masters, watching and learning from the best of the best. In return the European chefs return to Europe with a hint of Mauritian spice they’ve learnt from us.
