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

The location is like many other Seychelles Restaurants perfectly located at another perfect beach. 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

The place is nice. Get your shoes off as the floor is white sand. Amazing location, right by the beach. There are some big granite stones close by, amazing for pictures. The staff is really nice. They serve creole food. I really enjoyed my dish, shark steak. First time i ate this. The side dishes were really nice as well.... More

Excellent location right on the beach. Staff were ok and the food was good, although a little pricey. Nice to see the old tortoises, but for pity's sake - give them a bigger pen. They looked really sad and had very little room to stretch their legs!

We are at Chez Batista whilst on holiday with friends. The meal was a creole buffet which was supposed to be served at one but was about half an hour late. They seat the whole Resturant before the food becomes available and then there are huge lines for the food. This is not just at this Resturant but at buffets... More
