Cheap restaurants

We have booked a cheap deal to the Berjaya Hotel on Praslin Island in March next year. We don't want to spend a fortune on eating out and normally eat at the local beachfront places when we go away. Can anyone recommend any places to eat/bars that are within walking distance of the hotel?

La goulet a bit if a walk just out of cote d'or village offers simple and cheap food. We also enjoyed the pizza at the ice cream parlour in the village itself. I think a couple of hotels along cote do'r also offer regular and reasonable buffet nights. Although i haven't tried any myself.

Thanks for your reply. I've been trying to find out some information about the area (Anse Volbert) on the internet and the impression I get is that it is very quiet which is ok, but there is nowhere to go at night. I'm wondering whether we should upgrade to half board. Do you know whether evenings tend to be hotel based? I found one review which said there were no street lights so pitch black at night.

Also are there any ATMs/supermarkets in the village?

I am grateful for any info you can give me,

Hi

There are not many cashpoints in Seychelles per se, so I doubt there will be one in such a small village. It is slightly out on a limb, so be prepared and take a torch, always useful in Seychelles anyway.

I'm not sure about half board supplements unless they're good value for money, but if it is a little remote, then you may well be advised to go for it as the taxis are not always cheap, rarely so, in fact.

I don't recall any ATMs but there are a couple of stores with a limited selection of goods, but enough to get by. We always self cater in the Seychelles and never have a problem getting breakfast stuff or something for a quick sandwich or snack. I didn't find the place out on a limb and it's small but had a couple of gift shops, little food shops and there are plenty of hotels along the beach.la reserve around the bay, berjaya, cafe des arts, acoujo, villas dor, larchipel further along cote die the other way. I think the location is very good, I found that side of the island more picturesque and you can catch a bus, hire a bike or car to explore the island at your own pace.

I should add a torch us a good idea anywhere in the Seychelles because there aren't many street lights and yes I think it can be quote hotel based. You will find that some restaurants further away may do a pick up and drop off service for free. This wad the case at tante Mimi at the casino which served fab food if you want to splash out one night.

There are not many restaurants outside of the hotels, and most of them close very early. if you want to be able to wander around at night and have a choice of places to eat then, The Seychelles may be the wrong place for you. If you do go, take a torch.

HI, yes there is an ATM in Cote D'Or. As you come out of the hotel and turn right it is a few hundred yards down on your right hand side at the bank. Next door to the hotel there is Laurier Hotel and restaurant where they have a barbeque buffet every evening (except Wednesday) at a cost of 35 euros per person. This is a very well known and popular restaurant and it is advisable to book if you would like to eat there. You will be able to smell the food cooking every evening.

For a cheaper option there is the pizza place across the road which is owned by the hotel and I remember the pizzas being very good here although I noticed they had put the prices up quite a bit on our last visit. As mentioned there is Le Goulet restaurant just down the road which if I remember was about 10 euros for a meal, some dishes more, some less.

The best food we had on our last visit was across the road at Village du Pecheur. Very reasonably priced (about 12 euros a meal if I remember rightly) lovely setting and if the weather is good you can sit outside at one of the tables on the beach under the stars with your feet in the sand. However, the service was very slow and we were overcharged on each visit by a bottle of beer or glass of wine so it is worth double checking your bill. I loved the red snapper and my husband enjoyed the curried seafood, but everything we ate was good and everyone else seemed to enjoy their food as well.

Oh and there is street lighting along the main road although it is very dim. It is definately advisable to take a torch as we have experienced power cuts before.

I always find Lonely Planet to be a very useful site for all kinds of info. Here is the link to their page on Restaurants in Praslin. I know some of them list prices:

lonelyplanet.com/seychelles/…restaurants

And this is the page about night life spots:

lonelyplanet.com/seychelles/praslin/entertai…

Hope that helps.
