Fun beachside restaurant with a decent buffet

The buffet starts at 7:30pm, though there were already people queueing and is around 435 rupees per person. The quality of everything I had was really good though the dishes aren’t labelled so you can’t always work out what you’re getting, though there are some staff members around if you need... read more

good location but poor dining as in great t be by the beach but tuna steak turns out to be tail, overcooked and chewy. The chips wee undercooked and no dressing on the coleslaw, when mayonnaise was asked for SALAD CREAM was delivered. Wine was the best part at a reasonable price although the waitress got the order wrong in... More

Myself and husband ate here 3 times during the week we were in Mahe: 2 lunches and one dinner. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent value for money, especially compared to other restaurants.

My husband & I went in for a drink around 6pm to check out the menu, the waitress was indifferent & she didn't have the beer that was advertised. We decided on the local beer which took ages to arrive… still no smile… nor an offer of a food menu. After finishing our drink … we sat & waited for... More

Nice place though a tad expensive though it was worth it for the local food. I opted for the all you can eat buffet and they had a good choice, mostly local including desert. A bit expensive compared to other places nearby but if you are hungry and want to eat a good amount then this is the place

Very cool place to chill at for lunch or dinner. Limited menu but excellent vibe to the place. Good view of the beach and nice friendly staff.

Across the road from the beach. Ordered Afternoon tea and cake. Very nice friendly service. It was quiet as it was late afternoon, but looked as if would be a evening hot spot. Upstairs looking a bit abandoned.

My husband and I had the buffet which is the only meal available for dinner all nights of the week. There were a variety of hot and cold dishes, probably 8 of each and a grill station with grilled Job Fish and Tuna. The meals were nice but they are not labeled so you don't really know what you are... More
