Arrived at 3pm out with normal hours for service. Was provided with the best meal with outstanding service. Don`t eat anywhere else in Beau Vallon

The place is nice, a bit old though but the food is good. Grilled fresh fish there is recommended. The price is fair compared to the restaurants in the island. Around US$ 35 per person and it's all you can eat there!

Nice bar and good spot for a sun downer. Very friendly staff. You can watch the world go by. You can also eat at their buffet.

My cousin and I stayed in Beau Vallon for nearly a month and proudly became "Boathouse Regulars" We had lunch there a few times which was never disappointing and the buffet was great. There was A LOT of different Creole dishes to try, things I would have never otherwise picked out on a menu such as tuna with mango and... More

We had the Creole Buffet here which was reasonably priced compared to other restaurants and okay. As someone else mentioned, the food wasn't labelled so we had to guess at what we were eating - not ideal. I wasn't convinced the food was traditionally Creole but we were assured it was!

The buffet food was ok but could have done with being labelled better to help identify what you were having.

Good lunch in the mid of the stroll on Beau Vallon beach. Good views on the ocean. My tuna steak was great, helped by a sip of local SeyBrew. As always for Seychelles, price-to-quality is on the higher scale ($10 for a bottle of beer), but this is endemic to the whole country.

We booked a table only to arrive and find the restaurant full and no table reserved for us. The restaurant offers a buffet of what is supposedly 'creole cuisine'. The rice was hard, the curries were cold and the salads looked like they had been out for a while. I tried the food that is prepared by the chef at... More

Loved the buffet and the atmosphere -- very local, busy, and good food. The grill offering is a little different each evening, mostly fish and chicken. Lots of creole condiments and heat if you like it! Service was pretty prompt on drinks, and we ate here twice during our stay in Beau Vallon.
