The food here is totally different to anything else in london. It's also so full of flavour and the ingredients are imaginative. Plus it's a super chilled out place, not pretentious at all. I go back again and again.

After 1 or 2 trips to Marcel and Sons you feel part of the family. Excellent food and always great conversations with fellow customers and the owners!

Great Mauritian street food, trust me my family is from there, they have taken humble and homely dishes and given them their own spin. Andy and Randy bring their friendly take on these favourites introducing Londoners to the island through this cuisine while also providing a space that showcases up and coming designers and makers which references their backgrounds as creatives. Go experience these great tastes and make friends with some locals at this creative outpost in Elephant and Castle

The so called "upside down" bowl was scrumptious. A delightful mix of egg, rice, vegetables, meat with topped with a fried egg on top. The chow chow and the milky drink were fab! Will go back to taste the pao next time!
Epic food in a friendly atmosphere!!

The moment you step in this small but cosy resto,  you feel the typical Mauritian hospitality.. The food (especially the 'bold renversé') is very tasty and filling. 

My favourite value dish in London has to be thier bol renverse. It's super filling and beyond tasty! Chayote dumplings are not to be missed.

Marcel & Sons is such a hidden gem in Elephant and Castle. We've been quite a few times now and tried almost everything on the menu. The food is fantastic and the service is always impeccable. I highly recommend the upside down bowl; it's tasty and very filling. If you are after something to begin, try the lentil soup, it's great, and if you want something sweet after dinner, you can't go past the coconut ice cream with pineapple compote and pistachio nuts. Be warned - this dessert is too good to share so make your friend order their own one. 

Deliciously comforting food prepared by lovely people in a tiny space that manages to be hip and cozy at the same time. Highly recommended.

Happened upon Marcel's by chance after refusing Elephants dwindles -wish more food joints were so simple & effective! Good local vyb & even satisfied fussy child #winner

Unique little place sharing the love of delicious Mauritian Chinese food! You won't find it anywhere else!

Delicious food, the best of Chinese and French cuisine. Very affordable and very nice staff

Nouik Niam (steamed chayote dumplings) one of the best and healthiest things I've ever, a work of art!

Love this little gem
Of a place: truly comforting delicious Mauritian food on my doorstep! Bliss.

Fantastic, authentic Mauritian food. Cooked by a lovely couple of lads. A must visit!!!!!

Delicious food full of different textures and flavours served in stylish surroundings by lovely guys. Great price too! Elephants best 😀

Delicious, fresh food and excellent service - what more could you want ? Nothing else like this place in London, I highly recommend it!

If you want your food to be quick and delicious, this is the place to go to! Great service and value for money.

warm, friendly and really really good food! these two guys are so passionate about their food and really brighten up the darkest of days. Definitely the best meal I've had in a long time.

My favorite spot: absolutely fantastic food, made by lovely people for a very reasonable price. Everything you could possibly wish for!

Simply the best Mauritian food i've ever had. It's mostly light rice or noodle based dishes and dumplings, it's a little bit of a fusion of things and it works just great. Andy and Randy are really approachable, and a good fun to talk to, which makes the experience really pleasant. 

They also have an amazing home-made sorbet (out of this world!) and those small button shaped shortbread thingy that i couldn't stop myself eating. So desert is also sorted.

The lovely Randy and Andy make light, fluffy buns that easily rival Bao, and hot, flavoursome bol renverse. Super reasonable. They're so good I booked them to cater the evening of my wedding and they went down a treat.

Great find in Elephant and Castle! Friendly staff and amazing, value for money food!
