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.

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...

Had one of the best curry ever. Try chicken and prawn curry and you will really enjoy it. Also this cafe has some nice tables just meters away from the ocean.

We were attracted by not only its location but the reputation. It is definitely the place on Cote D'Or. However our expectations were not quite matched by our own experience. Admittedly we only had a light meal but this should have been more exciting than it was. It was a Sunday so the staff were busy. It was our first... More

Great fine dining , alfresco restaurant on the beach at Cote D'Or , Praslin. A MUST for anyone staying on the Island Food is first class - as is the service. Creole fish curry, crab & sweet potato croquettes are exceptional- as is the duck in honey sauce. Wines are simple but sufficient choice. Ask your resort guest services to... More

Delicious food with great service in a special location. Portions were a good size but not large. The food was elegantly presented. The beachside location created a relaxed mood.

With an extraordinary great location next to the beach this restaurant make an attempt to be the "fine dining" of the island. Dress code for men is strictly long trousers, posh interior and you do not see many locals eating here. First thing they stick you with the drink&wine menu before seeing the food menu. We had the grouper fish... More

We wanted to booked another restaurant the 1st night we arrived but ended up coming here. It was a pleasant surprise though! The restaurant is hiding inside the hotel, if you are driving, you have to drive on your left when you hit MCB at Cote d'or, then drive along for 5 mins before you see the Whitetip Diver. We...
