Le Capitaine is one of the oldest restaurant serving sea food situated in the village of Grand Bay facing the sea on the “small bay”. The restaurant was only serving simple food like grilled fish, meat etc for lunch and dinner with capacity of 40 covers and a staff of 3 members but support from his mother and sister Toolam was vital in case of emergency. The project started in 1988, but the restaurant was opened only in 1989. In 1993 the cuisine took a leap frog step with the arrival of one of the most creative and innovative chef kris Panchoo and clients flow increased drastically.
In 1998 he decided to pull down the restaurant building and on for a new Le Capitaine with open terrasse serving for 100 covers.,His wife Poovanam and brother Arou joined him as support .As time goes on Le Capitaine has build up a solid reputation of being one of the most consistent restaurant in service and food quality. In June 2011, renovation works take Le Capitaine to higher heights which will cater for more than 200 covers in colonial / creole style decor and ergonomic kitchen for high standard hygiene and sharp service.
Since 2002 Le Capitaine Restaurant Ltd has opened a second restaurant in Caudan Waterfront, Le Capitaine du Port facing the harbour in port Louis which is being looked after by Mrs Chetty.
