Restaurants & bars
In keeping with the islander theme, all the restaurants and bars are named with Creole words and continue using traditional styles of décor with contemporary touches. The main restaurant Karay is open at breakfast and dinner and serves a range of Asian, Indian and Mauritian cuisine in a buffet style. There is also a different theme each evening for dinner. Siaw specialises in Asian cuisine with show kitchens allowing you to watch the magic in the kitchen. Siaw is only open for dinner and has a relaxed yet refined atmosphere. At the newest restaurant Tadka you can enjoy authentic Indian flavours and dishes cooked in the traditional tandoor oven.
The adults-only Lor Disab is one of the most relaxed restaurants, where you can dine with your toes in the sand right out on the beach. Open for lunch and dinner offering a vast array of dishes with local influences. You’ll also find the Lor Disab Bar here, serving an array of colourful cocktails and other beverages whilst you gaze up at the stars for the comfort of your own beanbag or hammock. The snack bar Taba-J is open for lunch and afternoon tea, with a great variety of burgers and traditional Mauritian snacks, and for afternoon tea, pancakes, cakes and pastries. At Siro Kann you can enjoy paninis and sandwiches as well a home-made rum workshop on Monday, Wednesday and Friday before enjoying a range of cocktails using your rum. There is also the signature Zilwa cocktail, ideally sipped whilst relaxing in chic surround.
Zilwa Attitude is located in a sheltered cove on the northern coast of the island, looking out to five castaway islands worth catching a boat to explore. It’s a half-an-hour drive to Port Louis, Mauritius’ candy-coloured capital, and the pretty fishing village of Grand Gaube is accessible in just over five minutes.
