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

We ate there many times and were never disappointed with either the food or the service. They are situated right on the beach and has a very chilled vibe. A great spot to have lunch or sun downers and dinner. Highly recommended.

The restaurant provides a good opportunity to try a variety of local Creole food. The fresh tuna and king fish were lovely. The food is spicy but there is plenty for all tastes. Although the restaurant is a little expensive you can eat as much as you like and if you have room the desserts are good as well. Well... More

Lovely creole buffet at fairly reasonable price, nice location. The guy who works on the bar is fairly rude however and this did stop many of our friends going back. We would visit again.

The price is 400 Rupees per person for the food, the price of wine is 350 Rupees a bottle. You have decent choice of different salads, starters, meals, there is also a fish barbecue. And the... More

The food was good, but nothing special. Buffet opens at 7:00. It was average and overpriced. Can be loud because it's right on the street and they have live entertainment.

Have visited the Boathouse twice over the past week, as my husband had thoroughly enjoyed his Sashimi tuna Starter on our first visit We had popped in for something light, so the tuna starter was a good choice. I had the Avocado Salad, which was fine but a little on the small side, considering it was the same price as... More
