The long branches of the almond tree seem to stretch effortlessly to protect you from the sun. Before you, the lagoon sparkles on the horizon.
At the helm of the kitchens is a talented and inventive French chef who in the space of 10 years, has become a true Mauritian. Michel de Matteis, Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) in 1991, former chef of the Dome of the Mirabeau Hotel in Monaco, has anchored himself in the heart of the Indian Ocean to reinterpret French cuisine with Mauritian colours and flavours. Thanks to local, fresh, and rigorously sourced ingredients, he offers Coquillettes Pesenato with smoked marlin and salted lemon rind, prawns and wild lean fish, gently cooked on the grill. For dessert, roasted pineapple flavoured with muscovado.
And if you want something else, ask for it. Whether you are a star or an ordinary person, there's no difference. At the Royal Palm, the service staff respond to all the client's whims and quirks.
