Million dollar view, dreadfully pricey

John our driver took us on an island tour stopping first for incredible views of this gorgeous island from Morne Seychellois National Park. At Beau Vallon beach we stopped at a stunning horseshoe shaped beach, the beautiful white sand and warm water was very inviting. He then drove along the coast... read more

I visited Chez Batista early this week after spending time on the beach. It's a lovely location but I was really concerned to see a group of giant tortoises being kept in cramped and poor conditions. The web site suggests they are roaming free but sadly not the case..... Sorely in need of animal welfare ......surely sechelles can do better... More

A little hidden away restaurant with an stunning, almost hidden beach. The food was more buffet style but well worth it for the beach and the view

The location is nice but to get the most of it i would suggest to go there for lunch. Food is good but frankly is very very pricy considering the condition of the restaurant (very rustic) and the slow service. If you have deep pockets and value for money is not your concern it for sure worth a visit. Staff... More

Had a lovely lunch here before enjoyed the afternoon on one of the nicest beaches on Mahe' and a big thank you to Mr Batista who was so kind to help starting out car whose battery was dead: we could have not done without him and the other nice guy working here.

Had a delicious fresh octopus salad but it's expensive for what it offers. The view is nice but that's it. The menu is no more than a few dishes, expensive and pay attention to the fact that there is a mandatory 5% service tax (WHY?) plus VAT which is not included in the menu prices! You end up paying +22%... More

If you have kids, a must go as they have 8 giant turtles which you can pet and it seems like the like it. The food is ok. Unfortunately the grill the fish in oil which I personally think could be done much nicer on open... More

did not eat there...so no idea about the restaurant however the bar with sandy floor by one of the nicest beaches you can imagine is a place you won't soon forget.
