Cooking your own food on a stone is awesome!

If you don't know when the meat is cooked you might be in trouble. For us it was great to cook all the different meats, fish and shrimps and add garlic butter and spices, so good! Papaya jam was terrible so take those crepes. This is a nice restaurant and friendly staff :)

My very first restaurant I visited in Seychelles and still a favourite. The place is part and parcel of the owners art work which is seen everywhere. The food is very unique as you grill your own food on a hot stone with fresh food provided by them with side dishes. Also serves very good savoury pancakes. A must-do for... More

We visited the restaurant with a bunch of friends. Service was friendly and quick, the food great. They bring you a selection of meat, fish, or combination and you make it yourself on hot stones they put on the table. We were brought extra sauce and butter free of charge. We had crepes with caramelised bananas and ice cream. Loved... More

Good salads and fried rice. Interesting setup. A museum and artifacts along with a mini ship structure. Relaxing meal.

We had a very nice lunch on the way to one of the prettiest beach of the Island. The food was good and fresh. The "crépes" or pancakes that we had for desert were wonderful! It is a different/unusual place, with scultures surrounding you, which is charming. Service as perfectly OK as well!

Stumbled,upon this place, down to the left of the entrance to the four seasons resort, and very happy I was too. Admittedly it does look a bit Nat from the outside, in a Fred Flinstone kind of way but having seen guest being served their food as I came in I thought yes I would defo try this! I wasn't... More

My family had a fantastic time and it was great preparing the food ourselves. Great place for kids. Maria is a fantastic lady as she offered to drop us to the hotel when the taxi was late.

The usual pace of service (it was busy to be fair). However, once the food arrived the time it took was irrelevant. The sizzling hot plates where you cook your own food at the table are highly recommended. We visited 3 times in total, trying the sweet/savoury crepes on subsequent occasions, which were also delicious. Service was with a smile.... More
