Maybe because we were there mid afternoon but the service was not particularly good and not in the way that it sometimes happens on the islands. Food was OK although wasn't expecting chicken in batter when I ordered chicken and chips!

I loved the food, especially the fish. The staff was also very entertaining. Great live music! They close early but this seems to be the case everywhere on the island(s).

We came for lunch and were some of the only customers, but it still took about 15 minutes before anyone came to serve us. I ordered the fish and chips - the chips were awful - overdone to the point where you couldn't pick them... More

Enjoyed the evening buffet so much we thought that a return trip was only fitting for our last night in the Seychelles.
