Its location is accessible on google maps. In this review, I will delve into the magic of Mo Filaos, highlighting the elements that carve out its unique niche in the local dining scene.

The Setting

Ensconced in the heart of Bel Ombre, Mo Filaos is a sanctuary that effortlessly blends the charm of island life with local food delicacy. The shack design aesthetics of the restaurant pay homage to its tropical surroundings, utilizing a warm palette that mirrors the pristine beaches and lush landscapes of Mauritius. With a stunning view of the azure Indian Ocean and the backdrop of Mauritius's lush greenery, the al fresco dining experience is an enchanting affair.

The Cuisine

The heart of Mo Filaos is undoubtedly its masterfully curated menu, a perfect balance of the traditional Mauritian flavors with a twist of global gourmet. With a strong emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, each dish serves as a testament to the island's culinary heritage and contemporary trends.

One dish that captures this balance is the "Seafood Extravaganza". Celebrating the island's rich marine life, this dish includes grilled fish, succulent prawns, and tender calamari, all sourced from the local waters. The freshness of the seafood combined with the expertise of the kitchen results in a platter that is, in a word, extraordinary. Keep in mind that the quantity is limited and subject to weather conditions and the daily generosity of the ocean. So you better call and pre-book your portion.

The finale, the "Banana Flambé with Vanilla Ice Cream," is an absolute delight. The combination of caramelized bananas and creamy ice cream provides a sweet conclusion to the gastronomic journey, satisfying the palate in the most delightful way.

The Service

Service at Mo Filaos is good but slow. The staff are super friendly but could be slow and overwhelmed if it is full house. They exhibit a deep understanding of the menu, able to guide diners through their menu. Their warm, Mauritian hospitality shines through, adding to the overall experience.

In Conclusion

Mo Filaos is a local experience. It is no European by any means. So if you are looking for that dont go. Mo Filaos invites you to partake in a big mama home village dining experience with locals like no other. It is, without a doubt, a Mauritian gem hidden in the beautiful landscape of Baie Du Cap, making it a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts and culinary explorers alike.
