This is the 2nd time in three years that we've spent Christmas Day at Chez Batista's & I have to say, I thought it was good 2 years ago & I'm happy to say it was still as good today. Wonderful way to spend Christmas Day. The buffet for 300scr per head was good value, considering it was Christmas Day.

Visited on the recommendation of our host. It's a fantastic location, eight on the beach and adjacent to one of the more ostentatious hotels on the island. Sadly the service was average and the food so-so. Worth a visit to soak in the character & see the giant tortoises.

We spent half a day in Ande Takamaka and then ate to the restaurant : prices are crazy even for Seychelles standard, this has been the most expensive restaurant amongst its similars on the Island. Service is awful... We waited a hour for our pizzas and we received them without having neither dishes to eat... If you add to base... More

We were trying the fish steak. Simply excellent! Service and prices are the same everywhere you go on the island so it may look expensive at the first sight but similar food you cannot find in Europe.

Thank Adis0n
