We went to Le Jardin du Roi on a half rainy day. It is a paradise on the hills near Anse Royal on the East Coast of Mahé. Not easy to find, ideally check on Google Maps: we missed it the first time around. There is also an excellent restaurant on site where you can have lunch made with the... More

We certainly enjoyed visiting the garden, which is beautitful but we were chocked by the inhospitality of the lady (owner?) manager, who seems to run the restaurant. Furthermore most dishes on the menu were not available. We sat at a table, she came to us after a while, looking kind of angry, she looked at us and said that the... More

As the restaurant was full while we waited for a table we spent an hour or so rambling through the extensive and beautiful gardens. So many exotic plants, spices, flowers, orchids trees etc many marked with name plates which helped ID them. Really worth visiting. The restaurant meal we felt was mediocre and expensive for the meager portion of coconut... More

I spent a morning here with family and it was very relaxing. The views were excellent and the little cafe was fine.

The garden is a really nice place to see all the tropical trees, plants, and fruits. Pepper, bananas, jackfruit, breadfruit, sugarapple, coco de mer, bananas, pineapples, passion fruit... The walk is easy enough even for smaller kids and does not take more than 90 mins if you are very thorough. The entrance fee is 125 rupees per person. The restaurant... More

We went there for lunch on a public holiday, towards the late-end of lunch service. The setting is awesome. Sat within a tropical garden, on top of a hill with amazing views, the restaurant was bathed in a cool tropical breeze. A lovely place to getaway from the "hustle and bustle" of island life. Lunch was simple but delicious creole... More

We had a lovely few hours here. The gardens are packed full of unusual specimins which are clearly well tended and many of which were fruiting. We had salads for lunch and it was superb

The gardens are superb, immaculately kept and with great views down to Anse Royale. They are a cut above the botanical gardens in Victoria. After we visited them we went for lunch to the restaurant and had excellent fish served simply but beatifully. Highly recommended.

I would give them a "good" rating if it were available. My husband expected to be bored and he found it interesting. He felt they put a lot of work into it and had good information available. I expected a nice hike in a beautiful garden on well marked trails and found that a bit lacking. It's a rather short... More
