L'isle de France was the former name of the island of Mauritius during French Colonisation of the Indian Ocean Islands over 2 centuries ago. The name L'isle de France is a "Clin d'oeil" to Bernard's and Kavi's heritage, as they were both born in Mauritius, which has had an incredible French influence in terms of its cuisine, over the years. Kavi draws on the diverse culinary heritage of Mauritius (Asia, Africa, France) to create an incredible balance of flavours, of course his studies at Le Notre in Paris, enable him to bring renewed approach classical dishes as depicted by the Menu which is reviewed every 4 to 6 months.
L'isle de France had its humble start in Gosford in 2012 prior to relocating all operations to Terrigal in February 2014 The chic and elegant theme of the original Gosford Restaurant boasting a prominent dedication to French ambiance and cuisine, was replicated at the new premises on Terrigal Drive, where "Onda Ristorante" was formerly housed, next to the Country Comfort Inn.
L'isle de France now has a good following of regular customers who attend the monthly themed evenings usually held on the last Saturday of each month. The Dégustation dinners take guests on a real culinary "Tour de France"
