“Our continuous culinary refinements are a labor 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 flavors 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 flavorsome 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 (US$17/€15/£13) per main dish. Available daily, noon to 10 p.m. Check out Willie’s menu here.
