Embark on a gastronomic journey of fine French food at its best at L’isle de France Terrigal on Ena Street. Soak up expansive ocean views from inside and out at this classically chic venue, where a full glass frontage lets in natural light and white-clothed tables, napery and candles set an intimate ambience, ideal for lingering over dinner with someone special. Drawing inspiration from the diverse culinary heritage of Mauritius – the French island the restaurant is named for – expect entrées such as escargots, with garlic butter, cream, bacon, parsley and sourdough; while for a memorable main, delve into sous vide lamb, cooked for 16 hours, with creamy pumpkin purée and herb crust. Say bon appetit to a decadent dessert of dark chocolate tarte, whipped cream and nut praline to finish.
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 heritage, as he was born in Mauritius, which has had an incredible French influence in terms of its cuisine, over the years.

L'isle de France Terrigal thrives on a renewed approach to classical dishes as depicted by the extensive 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 new Elysium Terrigal Building.
