  • dining

    ‘La Cuisine’ is the main restaurant open for breakfast and dinner, with popular evening buffets incorporating Asian, Indian or Creole cuisine to interest all palates. Orangine ‘Grande Carte’ Restaurant is the go-to place for fine dining after sunset. With creative combinations of ingredients and a fabulous wine list, you’re sure to want to return.

    One of our favourite spots on the island is ‘Le Plage’, the beach restaurant offering drinks and Creole-inspired snacks such as spicy sausage or red tuna tartar accompanied by vanilla rum or fresh papaya juice. The deck, with wonderful views over the lagoon, is open during the early evening and Sunday lunchtimes.

    During the day, ‘Le Bar’ serves poolside bar snacks such as pizza and sandwiches, in a relaxed atmosphere- making it a great spot to unwind after morning island adventures!

    A daytime beach and swimming pool service is available for cocktails and drinks under your beach umbrella- simply raise your flag for service!

    Couples can request a romantic table for two on the beach or for special occasions or a last-night treat, groups might like to dine privately in the beautiful gardens.
