Mauritius is a famous summer spot for most Europeans because of its warm environment, amazing culture and food. Food is almost everywhere in Mauritius and truthfully, the best way to experience Mauritius food is to sample home-cooked meals by locals. However, these restaurants definitely know the heart of Mauritian dining.

Bois Cheri is a restaurant that produces the best and most unique tea in the island. The Ceylon tea of Sri Lanka imported into Mauritius is mixed with vanilla from South Africa to create the black vanilla tea. While it is a common menu item in many of the island's restaurants, Bois Cheri is the only one to make it splendid and special.

Indians and Chinese have heavily influenced Mauritians. The latter's presence can be felt with the great number of Chinese restaurants in the country. The melting pot of culture in Mauritius is evident in the First Restaurant at Port Louis' Boulet. These dumplings are Mauritian but are inspired by Chinese cuisine. It's made with fish prawns and a local vegetable called "chou chou." The dip is made out of fish broth and chili.

CNN writes that Chez Tino, run by a Mauritian family, specializes in serving gourmet versions of popular street food in Mauritius, including langoustines. The restaurant, according to an interview with owner Marie Anne Lacour, only uses the freshest ingredients and years of recipes handed down by the family's ancestors.

Chez Rosy, cited by Getaway Africa, features the island's amazing and exotic octopus curry. Octopus meat is quite chunky and chewy. The dish heavily represents Mauritian curry, which has garlic, onion and turmeric. Chez Rosy does it great and with a beachside view while dining too. 

Travelers who would love to try some amazing Mauritian desserts only need to head to the Vanilla House with its signature vanilla dessert restaurant La Table du Chateau. The service is a five-star restaurant and creates only the finest creme brulee in the country.
