The spot is amazing but the restaurant is run by a local family. This means that they do not employ outside staff and so the service is excruciating slow. The food is very nice if unimaginative - curry, curry and curry but oh so overpriced! They can't even be bothered to serve the curry with sides... read more

I can´t tell you much about the food. All I can say is that as soon as we reached the end of the road with our car, two people came out of the restaurant. They were very unfriendly and said it is not allowed to park there - we haven´t yet even stopped our car. They said we would be... More

Quite difficult to get to this place and be cautious when driving down the road as there is only space for one car and if the parking is already full it is not easy to reverse and go back up. Food is good - we went with the red snapper filet and a fried calamari starter.. Both were very tasty... More

I've been to this Restaurant many times, the food is fantastic, bit pricey, however that's the Seychelles. Reading other comments about the people running the Restaurant being very rude, you're all correct, however, put that aside and go for the food.

This restaurant, also known as Chez Julien, has a great location on the beautiful Anse Soleil beach. It is a bit off the beaten path so you need to know your way to get there. The last few hundred meters down to the small parking lot above the restaurant are very steep tracks; just move slowly ! The restaurant is... More

Pros: Fantastic location. Cons: The place is run by a rude and lazy man: gives a very poor image of the Seychellois and that is a shame. Value for money

We wanted to come to the beach and get something to eat, we were greeted by some guy (maybe the owner, but I just can't believe the owner of any restaurant could be so rude) who was so concerned about us parking. We tried to explain to him that we were going to snorkel and then eat. He told us... More

Great beachside venue but a major trek by road to get there. Very popular and one should book, especially at weekends. Food nothing special though and service very average.
