Cheap and basic but very good value

Cheap restaurant close to the beach. Good value and good food. Very friendly service. For the prices of restaurants on Mahe, this is very good value for the quality of food. Great for a casual lunch or dinner. Great that the restaurant is open all day

It was confusing: we came to... More

We had the chance to experience some Creole food at Boat House Restaurant last week. The buffet is pretty good and the price is reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area.

The atmosphere is enjoyable, but the prices were high for lunch entrees. About $22-25. We both got fish dishes. The fish was fresh, but the curry was a bit bland.

Usually this place gets very busy on a night time so we decided to visit during the day for a bite to eat. Its a lot quieter during this time and the service is considerably better. In regards top the food, I have no complaints. The fish and chips was superb along with the garlic prawns. I would highly recommend... More

Buffet style restaurant, casual vibe, I found most of the food too oily for my liking. Fairly affordable for seychelles though, and very attentive staff in comparison to what I've seen on the island.
