About Heritage Le Château Restaurant:
The ground floor reveals the Chefs dining room where gastronomic meals are served. The tableware from Maison Christofle is an artistic table icon- a true castle life. This room, separated by a carved folding screen, opens to the living room. When you go in, your glance inevitably falls on the ceiling ornamented by magnificent rosettes and crystal chandeliers.
The décor, service, and personnel are as sophisticated as the flavours presented on the plate. The dinner menu reinvents classic Mauritian dishes that are delightfully highlighted by local components such as jackfruit, hibiscus flowers, papaya chutney and more.
As for the art of table-setting, six tables are set up in the first sitting area and the Chef’s dining room welcoming up to twelve seats for an authentic Mauritian meal along with a selection of exclusive wines sourced from the world's top vineyards. Let the Maitre d’O welcome you on the veranda and extend your evening in the lounge and piano-bar.

About Heritage Le Château:
The enchanting château stands imperially in its distinguished grandeur, amid French formal gardens, embarking travellers on a magical journey through time. The Château has been masterfully reimagined to faithfully restore it to its former Anglo-Indian glory and personifies an eclectic revival of timeless ideals.
The Anglo-Indian colonial style mansion dates back to the 19th century when it presided over one of the oldest sugar plantation estates in south Mauritius. The château is now bordered by hills and a national park.
A treasure in Bel Ombre, the colonial one-storey house has French windows which characterises the period. It is a compulsory stop over while you are sightseeing in the South of the island.The building was built on 2500 hectares, composed of a vast natural reserve and sugarcane fields. It welcomes French gardens, where elegantly designed flower beds witness the tidy chaos of the growing plants. The stone central lane, adorned with fountains, recreate the grandiose atmosphere of the past.
The colonial residence, with its unique charm, is surrounded by a vast veranda where you can sit and admire the panorama of this part of the island.
