GREAT Creole Buffet !! Food was very tasty with a home-made feel. As a Mozambican, I did appreciate the fact that the creole food was very similar to my home country. Overall, the service and pricing were good.

If you had enough from the hotel food you can pass by here. Nothing extraordinary however the buffet contains some local food.

We had the buffet dinner there one evening. Very good selection of Creole food and bbq fish. Good value for money. Quite popular and directly opposite the beach.

We ended up here one night when our other choices were full. There was only a choice of buffet - it was okay but nothing special. Good service though.

Earthy atmosphere, on one of Mahe's most popular beaches. Wholesome local cuisine! Owners are very charming. They have a wide selection of local salads, & curries.

We popped in for a light lunch and had very tasty sandwiches. There is a separate sandwich/ takeaway counter, but you can still be served a sandwich at a table. A decent selection of fillings and the staff were friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach so you can watch the local fishermen touting their catches of the day.... More

I has a buffet dinner at the Boathouse. It costs you 400 rps and the food selection is pretty good. I am not a huge seafood fan so maybe that is why I was looking for something more. In general it's good value for money and the place has a nice vibe.

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!
