If you have something special to celebrate, something to be forgiven for, a girl / a guy to impress, you should go to the restaurant La Case Pitey at La Rivière St Louis.
Well, la Rivière St Louis is kind of far if you come from “the North”, and the restaurant itself is not easy to find. But it is worth it.
The restaurant is in a nicely renovated traditional house. The staff is perfect. And, we are not experts, but they have a very good selection of wines.
Now, let’s get serious. The Food. We have never been disappointed (some people have). But, to enjoy your dinner safely, we advise you to choose the “menu degustation”, a selection of dishes made by the chef (if you are not too picky). Then, you can be surprised by the chef’s inspiration and with local seasonnal products. Anyway, this “menu degustation” is “required” if you are more than 4 (or 6?) people. Of course, it can be adjusted according to possible allergies.
The “menu degustation” includes an appetizer, a starter, a main dish with meat, a main dish with fish, a dessert and some sweets. For big eaters, you can add a cheese platter, but even for David it is difficult to eat all of these !
(Veal with morel sauce / Sole & scallop / Scallops with I-don’t-remember-sauce) (I challenge you to remember all the dishes’ names in the gastronomic restaurants)
Everything is made with consistency and good taste. La Case Pitey is one of our favourite gastronomic restaurants in Reunion (and maybe even the first one).
