Local brew worth a taste

Restaurant, bar and casino all in one place. Frequented by the locals, reasonably priced and reasonable quality food. Great for people watching

Nice food and service seems to have improved since we visited 10 years ago. Very expensive though and definitely not good value for money

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

Stick with what the locals eat. Fish salad, octopus curry and beer. Prices are a tad high but actually pretty standard for downtown.

The food and the service were good. Fish was delicious , octopus salad as well. Don't expect too much , this a typical African restaurant, so the terrible toilets are as per the standard (no water there, of course). The synergy with a casino is quite weird.

Just above snack Bar level this resto could be great with better management. I had beef burger which was ... beef in a bun with salad on the side and undercooked chips. My other half half had calamari with cold rice and some lettuce. We were going to have ice cram but having waited too long I settled up and... More

Tried their take away joint behind the main restaurant to look for Octopus Curry. We ended up here because we followed the locals during their lunch break and saw that they were queuing up here, which shows that this might be a good place to try local food. As they do not have the octopus curry available, my wife and... More

With its central location in Victoria, and its standing as a long established institution in town, this is a great place to kick back, have a nice meal and a drink (Sey Brew for me), and soak in the atmosphere. The clientele is a pretty even mixture of locals and tourists. Service was delayed at times, but this is island... More
