We decided to have lunch at the Boat House, Mahe in December 2014. It is in a nice location right in front of the beach and the unique look of the restaurant intrigued us. Unfortunately the food was not the best and everything on the menu was expensive. It was a disappointing experience.

Location is very nice - Dinner buffet/food was ok/average-nothing special but service was very bad. I would go there again for the Location next to beach...but don´t expect anything fantastic.

Peaceful place in a nice location. Everyone there was nice and welcoming. Quality of food was very good and I would suggest it is a good start to anyone trying the creole food for the time, the variety would amaze some.

Nice buffet, that was a good introduction to food in the Seychelles. There was also a live band which was a nice plus.

This place really stood out of my expectations.. Really a peaceful eat out with an excellent collection of food and beverage.. The view from there is also worth spending time. Overall excellent ambience, food and service.

The restaurant is steps away from the beach across the street. In daytime a deli, it serves an all you can eat buffet dinner for a great price. Good choice of starter dishes and salads, as well as meats and fish main courses, and several deserts. Wine available - not high end but acceptable quality. Free parking around.

The local food especially the Red Snapper Kreol way was very nice and spicy. But they only do the fixed price buffet and for dinner its a little too much to eat! Would have appreciated al a carte menu instead. But nice view and food

The restaurant was nearly empty on a Sunday night and still we couldn;t have the table we would have liked. Were seated near the kitchen. Food ok but lacking atmosphere and service terrible.

The boat house is a family run business and although the owners are usually there service can sometimes be a bit slow. Other than that it has a good vibe to it, the food is fantastic and the staff are courteous and friendly.
