La Demeure Saint-Antoine

Turn back time as you step into the courtyard of La Demeure Saint-Antoine where a splendid and perfectly preserved creole-style colonial residence stands tall. Built in 1830 by Edmond de Chazal, it is one of the rare grand colonial residences still standing in Mauritius, featuring a pillared veranda all around the house, a series of adjoining rooms and antique furniture made of precious wood. The courtyard is home to century-old trees and majestic banyans, among which one can take long walks and enjoy the laid-back Mauritian countryside lifestyle.

Owned by the same family since its construction, it has been partly transformed into a restaurant and welcomes you for lunches, dinners or tea parties. The cuisine is tasty and refined and the staff will take care of your every need.

Just Enough to Whet Your Appetite

Here are some of the dishes offered by the restaurant: marlin tartar and green papaya, rum and pineapple chicken, babone fillets wrapped in banana leaves, whipped lemon cream, flambéed crepe with orange zest. Don’t hesitate to have lunch there after visiting the Historic Marine pirogue workshop and taking a stroll through the Goodlands market: a guaranteed contrast and change of scenery!
