We both being foodies and me a Chef love learning about Spices and La Jardine Du Roi did not dissapoint. Up in the mountain with wonderful view. To see everyday spices growing and what they look like on the bush/tree was a real eyeopener. Nutmeg, Vanilla, Mace, Cloves and so many many more amazing. The little Restaurant was was also... More

I had a lovely afternoon walk and lunch on the terrace. Do explore all the different paths. If you are lucky the owner will be there and share with you her experience growing up in the Seychelles.

Sampling the variety of creole food which is always delicious. An early visit to the spice garden is a must. Well kept.

We were not interested in viewing the Spice Gardens as we had seen some beautiful ones in Sri Lanka, but we had heard about how good the ice-cream was here from other TripAdvisor reviewers so decided to drive up to have a look and take a break from the beaches and to sample the ice-cream! I chose an ice-cream bowl... More

The spice gardens was a definite highlight of our trip and made a nice contrast to the stunning 'Bounty quality' beaches. We drove up to the gardens and explored the very attractive grounds for around 2 hours, taking in the vast variety of spices, exotic plants and darting bird life. A very restful and peaceful place to wander with soft... More

Lovely gardens with lots of bizarre plants and trees. Spent about an hour visiting the gardens and the ate lunch at the restaurant on site. Good food and fair prices, but the best part was the view! The restaurant finish working at 15:00 so plan your visit accordingly.

We enjoyed our trip to these gardens. We spent about an hour walking around the trails and matching all the numbered exhibits to the free guide. It was lovely to see all the exotic fruits and spices. My personal favourites were the pineapples and the avocado tree. There were some giant tortoises in pens and these attracted any visiting children.... More

A wonderful little retreat in the middle of nowhere that gave you a workout and a bit of an appetite that you wanted to come back and have the home-made lunch. Not to be missed. Also possibly the best ice-cream ever - had mint, cinnamon and lemongrass (separate scoops) and the flavours were amazing. Go walk, find some spices that... More

We loved this garden. It is probably of more interest to plantaholics and had hundreds of different spices and exotic fruit trees, together with a rainforest walk and longer treks (for the young/insane). There were also giant tortoises, and some other animals in cages (bit like a nature centre type approach). The food at the restaurant was excellent and you... More

The gardens are a few kilometres up the hill off the main road. They are quite pretty but extremely badly marked so it is hard to follow where you are going or what any of the plants are. The best part were the crops such as pineapple & bananas. It is more expensive than the Botanical gardens in Victoria. We... More
