Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. Buffet was good but food removed away too quickly so I didn't get chance to get a seco

Meal good, service quite good but a little expensive. I wanted a second helping as it states one price and you can go up as many times as you like but the staff started clearing away before I had chance

Me and my boyfriend went here on our last night in Mahe and really loved it. We chose the restaurant because we wanted to try traditional creole food and their creole buffet dinner was really amazing. They have a choice of salads, main courses and desserts (which are made of coconuts). They had some fried vegetable which was very delicious... More

We arrive at 7 am by ferry and would not like to go at these early hours to the apartment so we decided to have breakfast here. The open structure build of wood gave this place a unique and interesting ambience. We had excellent coffee and a very nice sandwich and pancake breakfast. the staff is friendly.

A popular place in this part of the island serving local creole cuisine. The service and atmosphere is very casual. The food is served in form of a buffet. Selection was reasonable with great selection of local vegetables including bread fruit. The passion fruit mouse desert was out of this world, absolutely delicious. Price was very reasonable per Seychelles standards.

This place offers a good buffet with a wide variety of local food. Friendly and lively setting, in central Beau Vallon. Good place to visit if you are a larger group of people. Many families present.. live music some of the nights.

The buffet is well above average by buffet standards and great value for money in what can be a very expensive resort. The cocktails are to die for!

We decided to go to the Boat House based on TripAdvisor reviews, but the evening we went, it was empty and we therefore changed our minds...nothing worse than sitting in an empty restaurant and also, it's just not a good sign. We went back the following day for lunch, mainly because if you don't want to eat in your hotel... More
