Had a massive family dinner and the staff handled the crowd (and diverse requests) with great professionalism. Food is great and way better than the nearby hotels (which will charge about the same for far worse food and terrible service). Our meal here will be long remembered and we will back as soon we can.

The best food we had in Mahe! And the restaurant itself is a very charming place and the owner is there and always finds time to welcome you. The cuisine is delicious - great fish and seafood. My favourites are the spicy octopus salad, octopus curry and the peele noire fish fillet, the red sniper. I even miss this food... More

I went there when my stomach was upset and came back fine. I guess the wonderful service, the owner who comes around to ask if I had appreciated the meal and the delicious food brought me to another dimension of fine cuisine. I had ordered fish with mango and the creativity of the dish delighted me. The menu is reasonably... More

Don't be deceived by the outside appearance in daytime. At night, the outdoor dining area is elegant and romantic. Superbly prepared food from the Italian chef owner and convivial service supervised by his wife Ima. Don't miss the Red Snapper variations.

My wife and I recently visited the Seychelles for a repeat visit and came back to the Perle Noire for an encore. We were not disappointed at all as our old favorites were still on the menu, but the daily specials keep the menu current with local fishing success. We would strongly recommend the Red Snapper with the Mango salsa... More

Based on previous reviews we has high expectations for the restaurant. It was very busy but the food was a bit disappointing, The prawn cocktail starter had warm salad and the main course (fish)was overpowered by a soya/ginger sauce. Not the cheapest and certainly not the best.

I visited Seychelles twice and after i discovered this restaurant I had dinner there every day. It is an amazing place with extraordinary welcoming staff. Every night there is the right variety of meals all with a magic mix of local and Italian tradition. Fish is alway fresh and with the right wine you will have the best dinner you... More
