Shortly before our departure from Mauritius, we went to an art gallery and restaurant named Le Maniglier in Trou d'Eau Douce. It is located on the grounds of a an old Sugar mill, with the old stone mill now converted in a gallery and restaurant.

Maniglier is the last surviving student of Matisse. Her original work hang on every wall of the gallery and some are for sale and not at a budget price...

The old stone building, the sugar estate surrounded by sugar cane fields make this an idyllic setting. The service at the restaurant was fantastic with three staff members constantly catering to our needs. The food was extremely expensive even by north American (Canadian) standards but it is worth every penny. Don't look for this place in a tourist brochure as they do not advertise widely. As a matter of fact, you must call ahead and book an appointment.

This was definitely one the highlights of our trip... See the photos and judge for yourself!
