For those who know Christian Lenferna de la Motte, a well-known figures in the hospitality industry, the Ile Maurice will offer that same quality of food and excellent service for which they have been renowned for previously at the St. Geran Restaurant and now in Umhlanga.

Christian Lenferna de la Motte after his various adventures overseas in Mauritius, Seychelles and Sardinia in the hospitality industry.

And given the ever-increasing demand for corporate and other functions, Christian Lenferna de la Motte has now extended the facility by adding a beautiful wooden deck upstairs to the existing function room. The new facilities also include a cocktail bar and lounge area downstairs. Ideal for that pre-dinner aperitif or after-dinner liqueurs, cognacs or choice of exclusive Mauritian Rums.


On warm evenings sit out on the sun deck and watch the sun go down, as you enjoy magnificent food, romantic evenings and the true Mauritian warm hospitality. The menu opens with the Soupe De Crabe, Soupe Mulligatawny and the classic Vichysoise. The Camembert Aux Amandes (deep fried with almonds, sesame seeds, served with red currant jelly is more than tempting as is the Pate de Choux a L'Epinard et Saumon Fume (choux pastry filled with spinach, smoked salmon and cottage cheese).


Main courses include Fillet of Sole, Line-Fish, Langoustines and Prawns and the delicious Gratin Madame Mauvis (medley of shelled seafood cooked in sherry and gratinee). Specialities include Rougaille de Boeuf, slices of fillet cooked with onions, garlic, ginger, chilli and fresh coriander, Prawn Chicken Curry, a typical Mauritian curry with Chinese and French influence and the Crevettes Calamare Creole, prawns and calamari the Creole way with coconut milk.

The desserts are a must but the choice between the Crepes Suzettes, Banane au Coco Flambee and other delicious desserts is not an easy one!

Definitely one of Durban's best!
