Setting up Bar/Restaurant in Mauritius?

Those living at Mauritius, any hints and tips about the subject? I would like to know is there some special issues, and if this is good or bad idea?

I'm long-time professional in bar management industry, looking to relocate due health issues.

Hi there, me and a SA expat were actually thinking about the same thing. We work in the financial industry and we have some contacts with high net worth individuals. So we're thinking about starting a bar/restaurant in the north. We do have some new ideas on doing something different from the other bars to provide better experience to the tourists as well as the locals.

If you're interested, we can discuss more. Are you in Mauritius?

Cheers

Actaully,i am looking for someone like you,as i have idea but as am not in the industry so we can do it together,i have already located a good tourist spot,so maybe we shall meet to discuss things further

I'm currently living in Finland, and I am looking for various options to relocate. At the moment I'm looking for preliminary information, what would help me to narrow down my search.

I need to look for locations at Mauritius where travel agents are sending groups from Finland, and perhaps take short scouting trip myself. I do have studied loads of information on Internet, about setting up business in Mauritius as foreigner etc...

i suppose better get your plane ticket and find accommodation on your own as it normally works out cheaper
try (moderated: no ads please) they might help in accommodation,airport transfer,setting up business and more services

Hi, everyone. I am thinking about exactly the same thing. I only have a limited experience in this industry (3,5 year of running a Cafe in UK, and being assistant restaurant manager part time). but I can bring considerable amount of cash with me;). I was thinking about buying an already established restaurant, possibly franchise in US, but just recently discovered Mauritius as an option, so If anyone has an offer for me and want to "take me on board" please contact me via this forum. Cheers

Hi there, my partner and I are both from South Africa and we are looking to relocate to Mauritius around May/June this year. We are looking to open up a bar/restaurant. Any tips that could be shared?

Hi, Chelsee, did you get any help?

Hi All,
If anyone is interested I have just purchased a small plot of land located on the Sea Front in Trou-Aux-Biches (highly commercial part) and I am erecting a small building on it.

As some may know, Trou-aux-Biches was voted "Best Beach Destination in the World" at the World Travel Awards 2011.

The ground floor is perfect for something like a Coffee House, Bar/Restaurant etc. The first floor will have an external stairway and can also be a Bar/Restaurant. The toilets and other facilities will be placed in the basement.

Total Sq Metres area (basement, ground and 1st floor.. all sea front) would be approx 300 sq mtrs. There is a road between the sea and the building and the sea is approx 15 metres away from the front of the proposed building.

The proposed building will have an elevator and there will be 8 large rooms for rent as a "Guesthouse". All rooms have balconies with full frontal sea front view of the entire bay.

If anyone abroad is interested in this project, maybe financing, renting, joint venture etc, please reply with your details.

Thanks

hi, can you send me more details please ...
thanks

Hi there,

I haven’t received any feedback as of yet. Our plan is still to relocate in June and hopefully get started with the bar/restaurant shortly after.

The bar / restaurant business might meet some administrative hurdles. You have to make sure that you are bringing an innovative idea, not the common bar / restaurant that would compete with locals. Minimum investment would need to be USD100,000 (I don't think this is a problem with a decent project though).

Permit or Letter of Intent to be obtained from Tourism Authority and liquor license with the Mauritius Revenu Authority.  Once letter of Intent is obtained, you can apply for an investor permit. The Tourism Authority advises that no investment be made until and unless you have their Letter of Intent in your hands.

I just thought useful to bring this information to those who are about to spend the money.
