This restaurant had been suggested by our host...the reviews are right...a lovely beach setting and wonderful snorkling...then we went for lunch and it too was very enjoyable...we had 2 different fish dishes and both were yummy...it was pricey for lunch...but then again what isn't in the Seychelles? The service was very friendly and prompt...we enjoyed our afternoon completely...

Very good creol food, very good situated directly on the beach. Big turtles. Anse Takamaka is one of the most beautiful beaches on Mahé, a must!

We had lunch here one saturday and not only had the pleasure of the most fantastic fresh food but we also had the most wonderful views of the most amazing beach we have ever seen and the joy of joining a family with their beach games ! This is a not to be missed restaurant !

The food was excellent, spicing was done very well. The restaurant is located right on the beach and you just can't beat the setting. This place, like so many others that we dined at, really needs ceiling fans. If you don't pick the right table, expect to be very hot.

I have been coming to Chez Batista for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. I just love the setting of the restaurant on the beach of the magical Takamaka bay. The enclosure nearby the restaurant with several giant tortoises over 200 years old is quite fascinating. I so enjoy the relaxed ambience of this gem of restaurant so... More

My family and close friends had the buffet lunch (on sunday) at the restaurant. The food is in abundance, and dishes cooked to perfection. Great place to try a variety of local dishes. The place is totally casual, with sand on the floor. Drink services were slow as it seemed they had few waitresses working on that day, and yet... More

I've been here a number of times since 2006 and even got married here in 2008. Going back for the famous "Sunday Buffet" after a few years away, it's notable that the food quality and variety seems to have slipped, the prices rocketed and the dining area has sprawled into the car park. It feels wrong to queue 20mins for... More

Beautiful setting on the beach. It is not much more than a glorified shack. The floor is sand so barefoot is encouraged. Fish is grilled in front of you. Nice fish too! Now for the bad bit - They load the menu price with 15% VAT and 5% surcharge. My kids had the prawns that came out at £40 a... More

After a first try a couple of month ago we decided to give it a second chance that time for the sunday brunch. We totally agree on the location, nice bay, nice blue water and white sand, but that can be found anywhere on the island. Back to the restaurant: - The staff is as rude as they were on... More
