Palais de Barbizon
Palais de Barbizon (St Anne Road, Chamarel village) – located on the southeastern part of the island, this creole restaurant has been in business for over 15 years. The menu is based on fresh, local products, all picked from the owner’s own vegetable garden or those of her neighbors (a hit for organic diners). Vegetables are the stars of the owner’s daily cuisine, featuring heavily in dishes like banana peel and salted fish curry, creamed cassava, octopus and chayote fricasee, or cassoulet prepared in the Mauritian way. Seasonally, these may be accompanied by curries made of chicken from the yard, freshwater langoustine in a red sauce, venison or fish.
