Enjoyed the fish n chips. Good batter. Location on the beach was perfect. Having cold Tusker beer and Savanna Dry cider available was a nice change of pace from other local options.

Personally I haven't yet eaten in that place. It was rather my husband who went there when he went to Seychelles for his interview, with a couple of friends he met there. As per what he told me, their cuisine is very tasty and delicious, in a typical exotic creole atmosphere with the roof, the boat, the pure Seychellois tradition... More

This our second day with a hire care on Mahe, where I think they have a better bus service than we have in rural Leicestershire. The Boat House has a prime corner position and in January 2015 all spaces were occupied for parking. On our return about 20 mins. later there were several. The building is fascinating, spacious, airy and... More

I've been to the boat house several times. The location of the place is perfect, right next to the beach. If you wish for a cold refreshment on a hot sunny day, the boat house bar guarantees your satisfaction. With a small list of fantastic cocktail that will make your mouth watery before you taste. what i love the most... More

Even though some people are complaining about the buffet we really enjoyed our dinner there. The staff is very friendly and the buffet has a lot to offer. The price is completely ok for what you get from salad to fish, meat and finally dessert.

The name itself implies fish and sea food, and you eat to your heart contents. I enjoy the variety of local food they offer from fish to fruit a pain etc, most of all, is the freshness of the food. To feel like you have tasted creole cooking, pay them a visit, beautiful, helpful and professional owners and staff

We decided to have lunch at the Boat House, Mahe in December 2014. It is in a nice location right in front of the beach and the unique look of the restaurant intrigued us. Unfortunately the food was not the best and everything on the menu was expensive. It was a disappointing experience.

Location is very nice - Dinner buffet/food was ok/average-nothing special but service was very bad. I would go there again for the Location next to beach...but don´t expect anything fantastic.
