Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort Enhances Its Position as a Food-Lovers Delight

A host of new dining options adds to the resort’s tranquil setting and luxurious amenities
The magnificent Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort on the southern tip of Mauritius at Bel Ombre recently announced four updates to delight vacationers seeking a variety of unique and delicious dishes in exquisite beachfront settings.


“Our continuous culinary refinements are a labour of love,” says executive chef Geert-Jan Vaartjes. “We hope each change enhances the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort as a fabulous place to eat great food in a relaxed atmosphere by the beach”, he said.

Many of the nuanced flavours that Vaartjes is proud of derive from the herb garden that he and the kitchen staff created.
The following changes have been made to the Outrigger’s culinary offering in Mauritius:
From the Sea: Seafood Tapas – Mauritius Style
Willie’s Rum & Crab Shack, situated right on the beach, has introduced a new range of spicy, fun and flavoursome sharing dishes – ideal for tasting with sand under your toes in front of the turquoise lagoon. The concept is tapas Mauritian style with the emphasis on crab, fish and seafood. Succulent highlights: Paella, a bucket of crabs like ‘your Mauritian mummy used to make,’ Madagascar crab claws, a pile of shrimps, Bel Ombre’s finest crab curry, or the impressive spiny lobster thermidor. Around MUR600 (€15/£13) per main dish. Available daily, noon to 10pm. Check out Willie’s menu here.


Free-Flow Saturday Jazz Brunch
The Outrigger Saturday brunch (with select free-flow Champagne, wines and beers) at the delightful Plantation Club has now switched to the first and third Saturdays of the month, 10am to 2pm. Enjoy mouth-watering favourites such as Prawn Thermidor with Coconut Milk, Beef Wellington, ‘Mini Dog’ of Chicken with Foie Gras and Truffle, Oyster with Coffee and Macadamia Emulsion plus much more – all to the accompaniment of the Gin N Tonic Jazz Band. Now that’s relaxin’. Price: MUR3800 (€96/£81) net. See menu here.

Aloha Breakfast on the Beach
The Edgewater restaurant, situated between the main pool and the beach, will now showcase a special breakfast on the last Sunday of the month 8am to 11am (the next one is 28 May). Named “Indian Ocean Sunday Breakfast,” it includes a juice bar, a large range of teas, sparkling wine and sweet/salty corners. Look out for Homemade Charcuterie from head butcher Pascal, Dutch and French cheeses, smoked marlin with lime, sushi and sashimi with soya and ginger, and more. MUR1800 (€45/£38) per couple. Sunday Breakfast menu here.


Beautiful Bar Bleu Bites
The food menu of Bar Bleu, the resort’s main bar beside pool and beach, has been updated: a range of delicious salads, paninis, pizzas (try the Turkish), hot dogs (including a Mauritius variation) and flatbreads are available noon to 9pm daily with a choice of refreshing drinks. Prices around MUR500 (€13/£11) per item. See menu here.
