I had brunch and lunch there: good food, great service and a landmark location in town. The place is value for money.

If in Victoria we would pop in for a quick drink. Reasonably price drinks with a pint of lager about £3 and a takamata rum a couple of pounds. Good value for a drink

Having eaten out alot for lunch at pretty sea view resturants we decided to go to the Pirates Arms for dinner. Big mistake. My sons ordered a pizza and sausage and mash. Whilst my husband and I ordered the creole curries. When the food eventually came there was a look of horror on our faces as my son was presented... More

The food was surprisingly cheap after what we've seen in Seychelles. The octopus salad was very good and they even modified it to my wish, but the Pasta Carbonara was not at all what you'd expect from it except it had pasta in it. The staff were friendly. The atmosphere was nothing special, and the chairs looked really old and... More

Not many places were open when we hit Victoria, Seychelles. Most of our work group ended up in The Pirates Arms for the big sporting event on tv and lunch. I found the food average but priced very high. Some items on the menu were not available. The restrooms were completely 3rd world.

The service, food and atmosphere were ok. At best a convenient pit stop in the centre of Victoria. I had a fish curry which was acceptable if a little dry. Curry plus bottle of water £15.

We saw this advertised in the local guide we were given so thought we would give it a try. We were greeted, or rather grunted at by a chap at the door. We chose a table and discussed the not so friendly locals. A young girl served us and was ok. I decided that I would like a plate of... More

Food was ok, but had diverted away from standard local food. Was a lot better 2 years ago. The lady that served us was friendly, but it took a while for the meals to come out. Atmosphere was good
