I ve been there several time for the past 15 years and each time you can always point mistakes about the service or the food served. 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

My husband and I decided to visit the place since it had large WiFi sign ahead of the restaurant. Well, there's no WiFi. What was there was Guinness for SR35 and local SeyBrew lager for SR25. In total, we had two of each, and the bill was supposed to be 120. We left 150 at the table and left, only... More

Sorry Pirates Arms, but I ordered your "pork sausages" with cheese sauce and ended up eating 3 semi grilled Plumrose Hot Dogs, no sauce and cold fries. Not appealing at all. However the other four blokes I was with all had Pizza's or Burgers and they loved them. Your Sey Beer was cheap and cold, just the way I like... More

If you're looking for an amazing meal you won't find it here. The food is average but you won't be paying the 5 star resort restaurant prices. It's ok if you are just hanging around the area and want a somehow cheap quick meal.

This is a nice place to watch people go about their daily life in Victoria. The pizza and lasagna were ok. The passion fruit juice was fresh and tasty. Overall, a place with a nice view and average food.

From the outside, this place looks like it would have a pretty good atmosphere, but unfortunately it's more of a fast food barn inside. Although the service was quick, like the rest of the Seychelles, it was poor. For a country with a tourist-driven economy it is surprising how bad the customer service is everywhere! The food was mostly average... More

I thought it was an average bar, but it resulted into a good place to have breakfast and lunch. I really had a nice time there and prices are moderate.

I never had anything mindblowing in the Pirates Arms, but the food is very nice, a good choice of non-fish dishes (may come as a relief for some fish-skeptics).
