Nice dive into deep jungle with nice food

The restaurant has nice pirates ambient and is perfect for couples and families to get away from the campus resorts. The value price ratio is very good. You will cook by yourself on a hot stone and if you are there for the first time the waitress will help you kindly.

Have visited many times as we used to live in the Seychelles in 2007 and 2008 and always took our visitors here. This visit was at the request of our cihildren on our recent holiday. We were thrilled to say it hadn't changed. You choose whether to have a meat platter, seafood or mixed platter and then cook your own... More

The food is very good, you get to cook yourself on a hot stones, very tasty! Also they have crepes with fruits and ice creams, very nice. The place itself is very interesting, with the pirate ship, and accessories, our daughter loved to play there, she got the pirate hat etc. It's CLOSED on Tuesdays!

I stayed at Kempinski Hotel Resort so the restaurant is near my hotel and it has been rated 5* on TripAdvisor so I decided to give it a try. Here's the facts , obviously people were amazed with the restaurant concept which is to cook your food on a stone stove presented on your table BUT everything else in the... More

A must visit for every one. The concept of prepare your own food along with the surrounding gives one an adventurous feel. Enjoyed the beef and prawns and although it was like 30 mins drive from the hotel , we went again cause we dint get enough in 1 trip.

Great meats and fresh brew. The place is very local and has a nice vibe to it. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting seychelles. Very close to four seasons and kempinski hotels. Kids loved it too.

Stopped by for lunch and had mixed hotplate option, good quality fresh produce. Service was very good and fast. As it was raining we stayed on having drinks and chat with couple we had met for the remainder of the afternoon. Definitely worth a visit.

We found this place down a track, you take the turn to the 4 seasons / Kempinski and keep going as far as you can virtually. It is hot stone cooking in a real easy atmosphere, the food is good and cheap and the service is personal. Dont expect a Michelin star but what you get is worth the visit... More

This is possibly the best food ever. Fresh and perfectly cooked. If it's not perfectly cooked you've overlooked it, assuming you go for the hot plate option....as far as I know this is the only place on the island with this option, it's brilliant. An array of fish choices, amazing butters and a taste sensation not to be missed. There... More
