Description: The ultimate in fine dining Set right on the beach, the Cafe des Arts...
The ultimate in fine dining Set right on the beach, the Cafe des Arts Restaurant has earned its reputation as the best restaurant in Seychelles by creating outstanding mouth-watering dishes served in the most amazing setting. Seafood and epicurean dishes are the main attractions, making the restaurant the address not to be missed. The art is in the attention to detail and the fresh ingredients served to perfection with refined service and a touch of class. By day it is a sophisticated yet relaxed beach dining experience and by night the whole atmosphere transforms into a chic and elegant high-class restaurant with a sumptuous decor. Cafe des Arts is synonymous with gastronomy at its finest. The "Blue Octopus Bar" serves cocktails and other drinks. NOTE: Children under the age of 5 are not permitted.

We stayed at Paradise Sun on Half board and decided to try Cafe des Arts the first day for lunch because of the great reviews. It was a great location to sit out side and take in the amazing beach views. The food was over-priced (Even by Praslin standards) and very mediocre. The rest of the week we stuck with... More

Just have been back to my favorite place and enjoyed together with my family for two days the restaurant and the beach area which gives you an breathtaking time. In paradise everything is great and really is the food, the drinks, the view and especially the service staff. Don't miss

When in Seychelles we sit outside, keep it simple, look for good food at affordable prices and enjoy the ambience. Offering the little shop with some designer goodies, is nice. Art displayed is always an attraction for me, I am an artist. When the owner then adds a bit of humour, deco and own style ... well, I am happy!... More

Don't know why everybody is raving about this restaurant Dress code is very strict, even if there weren't many other people, and it's a beachside place too so why not be a bit more flexible; my poor husband was sweating away in his trousers - there was no breeze and the warmth stuck to the ceiling with the few fans...

Dear DesertroseBe, We thank you for your comments and regret that you had a bad experience. A dress code exists in all restaurant and we expect our guest to dress up casual smart. We do allow shorts in the daytime but evenings are a bit more sophisticated. A dinner experience should be enjoyed with a minimum of refinement. As for... More

Dear Hamrio, We have rules and regulations like everywhere else and making exceptions would not be fair on those who wish to dress up elegantly in long trousers for their night out. The next thing you would ask would be to come to dinner in your swimsuit! Despite being AFRIKA, we do have a bit more manners... More
