Our

Commitment to Mauritius

“Cooking is a love story, you have to fall in love with the products and the people who make them.” – Alain Ducasse

Every week, our guests are introduced to a new dish. Recipes vary as the seasons change, reflecting our current mood 😊  Every last Sunday of the month, we organise a live concert during our BBQ brunch.

Mauritius welcomes a selection of small-scale farms harvesting a variety of products, including tea, fruits & vegetables, meat, fish, salt… The island benefits from a pleasant climate, ensuring an abundance of fresh and tasty products all year long!

At L’Atelier Restaurant, this encourages us to favour short production cycles when preparing our dishes. In the same vein, we have just built our own 100% responsible Ecogarden, offering freshly picked aromatic herbs.

Our journey

Favouring short and direct supply chains, L’Atelier strives to support local suppliers. To this end, we have built privileged relationships with producers operating in Grand Gaube and the surrounding area.

Fishes, seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs only travel a few kilometres to get to your plate! A guarantee of quality to give our guests the best of what our beautiful island has to offer, while contributing to the local economic activity.

Local products

In the spotlight

We carefully select the products displayed on our menu, everything starts from there! We take pleasure in working with producers who share our vision and in elaborating our recipes from beautiful products full of flavor.
