Acquapazza at the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita (Mauritius)

Located on the Four Seasons' private island Île aux Chats, Acquapazza greets diners with an entryway flanked by fire-lit torches. The restaurant's name means "crazy water," which is a traditional Neapolitan dish of fish poached in water and olive oil. Chef Alessandro Fontanesi and his team prepare their own version of the dish: fillet of sacre chien (a kind of snapper) cooked in parchment with potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Other offerings on Acquapazza’s contemporary Italian menu include ravioli-like such as culurgiones with scallops and black truffle and vincisgrassia, a tomato-less lasagna with layers of Parma ham, porcini, and black truffles, adapted from a 15th-century recipe. An array of specialty ‘liquid desserts’ are also available, such as cappuccino torinese, a combination of vodka, Baileys, milk, Nutella, and vanilla ice cream.
