On Montreal Restaurant Les Délices de l’ile Maurice Chef Deck Says:

WARNING: For all of you discriminating snobby eaters read no more.

You are about to experience a look into one of the most entertaining, deliciously different, Mauritius cuisine (mix of Creole, Asian, French, and Portuguese), type eateries in our grand city of Montreal. Sylvester is the definition of la joie de vie, he is a man who wakes up in the morning with a cold bottle and believes that there ain’t nothin better then a ridin the rail (or spending 5 weeks a year in Cuba with his “sisters”). Every meal starts with an amuse bouche of fried cabbage, with onions and peppers, accompanied by four sauces being spicy, coriander vinegar, I forget but good, and I forget but better. You then move on to a choice of appetizers, Creole chicken, shrimp salad, or smoked salmon salad all of which are phenomenally tasty. Next you get the soup of the day that’s great. For the main course you have a choice of shrimp, scallops, squid, sea base, salmon, some other seafood stuff, chicken, beef, lamb or ox tail, in your choice of curry, Creole, saffron, tomato, garlic butter, or honey sauce. All of the meals are amazing but not for the closed minded, health conscious, or pretty bird type eater. This is the perfect place to kick you in the balls, smack you across the face, and help you remember what’s really important in life (living free and peace of mind).

Atmosphere: Sylvesterish feng shwayish/10
Food: Sylvesterish amazingness/10
Price: absolutely absurd that you can eat so much and spend 10 buck a person/10
After 10pm: Just go on a Friday or Saturday G-D dang it and find out for yourself/10

    I had dinner there last winter. The food was very tasty. My dinner companion had shrimp creole which were big, juicy and plentyfull. We enjoyed our evening very much.
    When we went to the cash to pay, we could see in the kitchen (that’s in full view behind the cash) that uncooked shrimps were stored on the counter, next to the cooking area, in dirty water in a plastic container . We could also see other pieces of chicken and meat piles on the counter touching each other. Well…my dinner companion got sick that night…very sick. Given that he had nothing to eat more than 8 hours prior to his meal and felf fine before it could only be the shrimps.
    My conclusion, Sylvester makes tasty food but would definitely need a refresher course on food handling safety !

    We have eaten here numerous times and NEVER gotten sick. The food is great. We went a few weeks ago and the place has been fixed up. Sylvestre retired and other family members have taken over. There is now a written menu. This is a great place for good, inexpensive, tasty food. I

    I don’t know what happened to this restaurant, the reviews from years back were excellent, perhaps it changed ownership.

    I was walking in the
    neighborhood at lunch and decided “hey, here’s somewhere I’ve never
    been”. Well, I wish I’d kept walking. It was lunchtime, and the
    restaurant was empty, not a good sign.
    Sat down and ordered
    Calamar, and my friend ordered Noodles with Chicken. The appetizers and
    soup were incredible, the fried cabbage was a real treat, and the soup
    was spicy, homemade and satisfied absolutely.
    Where could this go wrong?
    Well,
    the main dishes came and my Calamari tasted more like old shoes, and
    had a horrific consistency. I sent it back. My dining mate dove into her
    noodles and chicken, and it had zero taste. The owner charged me FULL
    PRICE for two meals that were inedible, and appeared to become extremely
    agitated.
    Needless to say I’d never eat there, nor would I recommend it to anyone.
