Rok Flander


Former Snowboard World Champion


Former Snowboard World Champion now Restaurateur Rok Flander and his wife Gabriella, were able to transform an old Bank into a shabby shick looking restaurant. Using pieces of an old colonial house they managed to transform the wood in to pieces of furniture, bar and other parts of the restaurant. They have reached a unique ambiance that perfectly fits in the beautiful environment of the UNESCO protected Le Morne Brabant mountain area. At the same time there is nothing better than eating local Indian Ocean food off the more than 100 years old wooden tables and chairs.
