The restaurant has been around for eons and although management has changed, the name has not and reputation has remained more or less the same. It's the place to meet up with long lost friends and catch up when they're in town. Not à place for a romantic dinner! The atmosphere is OK but not good enough for me to... More

Housed in a ramshackle shack, this eatery is one of the worst places I ever visited. The staff has no smile on their faces and are tip-hungry, servings are tiny, prices are exorbitant, cleanliness scant, no toilet/washroom on site.

We ate at The Pirate Arms recently whilst shopping in Victoria. This is a popular Resturant and if you want to be served here or anywhere in the Seychelles you need to get into a place and order before noon because at this time the workers in the city break for lunch and the streets and resturants are packed.

Went for both breakfast and lunch on several occasions during visit. Good food/drink menu with a changing specials board, always meant you have plenty of choice. Nice and relaxing atmosphere.

Very good food and liked the ambience. It was busy the two times we went there for a meal. It is also family friendly since not many places are recommended for children at night but this one was found suitable

Where everywhere to eat on the island the Pirate Arms is the exception to the rule. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Pork garlic, pork loin and escalope all got thumbs up from me and my friends. Definitely the place to go and enjoy. Cocktails wonderful especially Sensation.

Last time was 3 meals order, 2 plates arrived after 20 min, we thought the next one would arrive soon, another 20 min later we waived a waitress to know what was going on... More

This place is situated in the middle of Victoria´s business and shopping area adjacent to a busy street. The restaurant is OK for a coffee or a quick bite if you have to be in the area. The atmosphere is not amazing but relaxed. Coffee quality was OK, and not expensive for Mahe´s price levels. Parking in the area but... More
