Sample the delights of a traditional Mauritius restaurant at Le Palais de Barbizon in Chamarel. Imagine your very own buffet with tasty creole specialities. Organic vegetable and fruits prepared the island way, chicken and fish rougaille dishes, plus of course a rum punch ...
Your very own 'buffet' at 'Le Palais de Barbizon' restaurant
The food is lovingly prepared by Rico and his sister in law Marie-Ange in their humble restaurant in the South West of the island. You’ll be welcome with open arms by this warm creole family.

The lunch menu varies everyday depending on what is available. At only 450 rupees it’s very reasonable. Le Palais de Barbizon offers you a selection of exotic vegetables and fruits plus typical creole food in lightly spiced sauces. Don't worry about chilies. They are served on the side.
