Le Manta, romantic atmosphere in a tropical garden

A mix of Creole and metropolitan influences, Le Manta draws you in with its intimate atmosphere surrounded by Réunion flora, right on La Passe beach.

Close to Hermitage beach, a lush tropical garden hides Le Manta, a restaurant that is an absolute must on the west coast of Réunion. Once past the large exotic plants lining the entrance, you will discover a large 110-sqm varangue, a sort of vast veranda typical in Réunion, which welcomes you into a romantic atmosphere. Under a vetiver roof with a charming natural wood decoration, all lit by a subdued light, your sense of smell is sent into overdrive by the aroma of the dishes. The menu combines Réunion and metropolitan specialities, from tripes à la mode de Caen to spicy Creole puddings and tartiflette with curried zourite, a small octopus found in much of the island's cuisine. You can be guaranteed a delicious meal where both influences blend, such as duck breast with pineapple or grouper fish blanquette. Enjoy these (in moderation, of course!) with one of the vast selection of house rums available!
