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 ate twice here during our stay on Praslin Island and for the most part enjoyed the food and wine on offer. The sushi at this restaurant was the best we've ever had. Our only main food related concern was an overcooked (chewy) fish dish on our last night here (we had the same dish our first time here and... More

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
