Le Nautique

Top choice International

in La Digue

Small, but perfectly formed, the elevated deck of this open-air dining room overlooks the ocean and provides a romantic setting for a dinner that won't disappoint. The red snapper fillet topped with a banana sauce (its signature dish) bursts with sweet flavours, as does the 'Trio of Fish' (tuna, jobfish and red snapper) with candied orange. Reservations are a must.

Lunch is more casual, though no less tasty. Tuck into jobfish croquettes, a ploughman's salad, nachos, Creole fish tacos and more. For a cool caffeine hit, its iced coffee smoothie can't be beat. The poolside bar is great for sundowners.
