Escale Creole

Set in a tropical garden in Moka, the ‘Table d’Hote’ Escale Creole will offer you an authentic, convivial and tasteful experience. It is a place everyone should experience at least once while being on the island! The restaurant is run by two wonderful ladies, Majo the Mom and Marie Christine her daughter.

Majo is the chef who reigns over the cooking pots that simmer in the kitchen since the morning. The Creole cuisine served is simple meat or fish dishes prepared with basic elements such as rice, pulses, vegetables and accompanied by chutney. For the sweet touch, an assortment of desserts is available made of fresh products from the restaurant’s tropical garden. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the hosts with some sweet tropical juice, and treated to local snacks under a large Creole type veranda. Get ready to taste a ‘real manzé lakaz’ (real home-made dish).

You will have the opportunity to experience true Mauritian dishes such as ‘rougaille de saucisses créoles’ (sausage dish), ‘cangraillé de chou et poisson salé’ (cabbage and salted fish dish), ‘traditionnel cari volaille’ (traditional chicken curry) or ‘salmi créole de cerf sauvage’ (deer meat dish).

Some of you may be reluctant to go thinking that since the restaurant serves authentic Mauritian cuisine, the dishes must certainly be hot, but it’s absolutely not spicy. The whole team will help you live a great moment of discovery and relaxation with the hosts providing you details of the background and history of the dishes served. You will also be served a traditional home made rhum which complements the food wonderfully. The beautiful sega music is a nice background music adding to the atmosphere.

You can choose between two types of menu at the restaurant:

Discovery Menu

A surf and turf dish to discover two of the main flavors of an authentic Creole cuisine.
You can choose for the whole table:
A Turf dish (meaty dish) : Rougaille Saucisse (sausage dish) or Cari Poulet (chicken curry)

Gourmet Menu

For those of you who are ‘Gourmets’, the Gourmet menu will take you on an authentic tasting trip of the four renowned flavours of the Creole cuisine:  ‘La Rougaille’, ‘Le Cari’, ‘Le Vindaye’ and ‘Le Salmi’. 

The whole table will be served the following menu under this option: Rougaille Saucisse (sausage), Cari Ourite à la papaya (octopus curry with papaya), Vindaye Poisson (fish), Salmi Cerf (deer)
