A smallish restaurant, beautifully decorated, overlooking gigantic granite boulders and the Indian Ocean. The perfect setting for a romantic dinner. The food was creative and really nice, and the service just right!

Lounge 8 is a nice beach restaurant with inside and outside sitting. We had a dinner there while we stayed on Mahe. Usually you would want to sit outside in the garden or on the rocks but we had to eat inside due to a thunderstorm which proved to be nice as well. Very stylish interior and good ambiance. Food...

Had dinner one night @ Lounge 8 - walked up from the Hilton Northolme (which, I wouldn't revommend - it was further than we thought and it was quite a warm evening). It is connected to the Bliss Hotel/B&B. Anyway, it's a small restaurant with a wonderful outdoor section to eat under the stars. Opt for the chef's surprise menu... More

we were a group of eleven people and wanted to enjoy a nice dinner in this restaurant. As we ordered wine, there was no winelist, and it turned out that there was only one bottle (!) of each wine. This is not what you expect from a "haute quisine"-place....(thats how the owner announced it previously) Furthermore I ordered something vegetarian... More

I visit this restaurant every time I am in Seychelles and it never fails to impress me. Actually things have even gotten better, since they now have a la carte menu, which I prefer to the surprise dinner. Amazing decoration, quiet, relaxing atmosphere, and the owners, Joelle and Jean Baptiste are very friendly- Food is excellent, and the presentation is... More

We were lucky and had the whole restaurant for ourselves ! Their mojitos were excellent with that special taste that makes all the difference. Then we selected the "Surprise Dinner" (understand blind dinner), with one amuse-gueule, one cold and one hot starters, main course, dessert and champagne. EVERYTHING was perfect, very tasty, well presented, we have been spoiled. The ambiance... More

Fantastic location right on the beach overlooking the sea. Cool decor, great food and friendly staff. Beats eating at the resorts, and cheaper too. And it's a locally run business not some international chain.

Finally found a restaurant with ambiance with intimate lighting/candles/ decor and great food. It's family run and it shows with their passion for food, Mother Joelle came and talk to us ( a first for us in the Seychelles). Their Son as the chef even as he was very busy came out of the kitchen to talk to us for... More

Very nice decoration, fancy and peaceful at the same time with lots of Buddahs, we could eat either outside or inside. The sea waves were crashing right below us. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset. We picked the fish of the day, great "Job" piece with parma ham & black truffle sauce, served beautifully with safran rice & flower decoration. The... More
