I was really looking forward to a pizza and beer here as it was recommended in my guidebook. Not long after my husband and I ordered and were enjoying our beers we spotted mice running underneath the tables and it really put us off our food. The pizza was good but at that stage the damage was done. We ate... More

I am a native of this island and this place provides one of the best pizza around. Good location, it gives way directly on the beach or you can just come in the evening and have evening meal.

The location is very good with a good view of the bay. Tried some sea food was not bad but more for tourists, the staff is quite friendly

We visited here twice as my husband is a massive pizza fan (he would eat every day if he could!) and because of the good reviews. We were very impressed. The menu is small by UK comparison but don't let this put you off as the pizzas are so good, even though most are very simple with 3 or four... More

Great choice of pizzas . Nice and thin with lots of flavour . Location on the beach with the wood fire gives it a great atmosphere . Staff very friendly . Will be back for more !

A great local pizza joint that's packed every night! It's right on the water, the beer is cold, and the pizza is good (and affordable).

The service in Seychelles is generally rubbish but this place is probably the worst I have been to on the island. The menu is very basic, they do not have any parmesan or butter..... The staff are rude and unfriendly but the food is actually not bad at all. I would not eat in the place if it was in... More

You get what you pay for in life, and this is a cheap and cheerful place to grab a pizza and a beer, just off the beach. So where restaurants are rated on their food, location and service, I'm glad to report to that what little you pay definitely goes towards to the things that matter! The pizza was simply... More

Maybe the food is good ...but I don't advice anybody to go there unless they want to wait for 2 hours and still do not get 2 pizzas and 2 fish salads. We arrived at 8 and there where not table available so we wait for 15 minutes . Fair enough. Once we have the table it take another 30... More
