Located in Moka, the hotel Maison Euréka can be found behind ‘La Maison Créole’, a colonial house which has been converted into a museum and restaurant devoted to Creole culture.
The hotel offers a range of cultural and historical trips throughout the island, as well as eco adventures and trips to nature reserves, whilst the food served at the eponymous restaurant evokes the culinary traditions of these multicultural isles. Enjoying a Mauritian tea, flavored with vanilla, mint and lemon, in the picturesque gardens before dining comes highly recommended, as does the restaurant’s rougaille, a thick mildly spicy tomato sauce cooked with onions, garlic, thyme and coconut chutney.
Eureka House is a unique Creole house built in 1830 located by the river of Moka. It is an elegant Créole residence originally owned by British and French aristocrats in the 19th century. It is reputed to be one of the largest houses on the island, with 109 doors and windows.
As part of the visit of the Eureka House, we offer you to enjoy a delicious lunch and a unique dining experience at the Eureka House restaurant specializes in the traditional Mauritian cuisine.
