Great local food

I was recommended to visit this eatery whilst in Victoria. It is very popular, basic but offers good cheap food and drink. Worth a visit.

Food in Mahe can be very expensive and not always that good. The Pirates Arms is however great food and reasonably priced. It's also a good place from which to watch Victoria go by.

Had lunch a couple times at Pirates Arms and everything we had was excellent, great value in Victoria, one of the few reasonable places, usually very busy. Service and staff have improved greatly over the years. We loved it.

The Pirates Arms is located on the main street in Victoria. It offers a full range of food and drinks but doesn't have much of an atmosphere - very busy!

Okay, I can't say there is something wrong here so in that case the 4 stars is acceptable. Bonus points comes from good opening hours, we had here late dinner maybe 8-9pm. And also the prices are very good! For example: Large beer was 50 Rupees (About 3 Euros) when in other restaurants its double or triple that. The service... More
