Description: We're that wonderful, casual seaside spot where locals gather with old friends, and meet new ones. A welcoming, comfortable place for a family meal or a high-energy afternoon-evening & late-night rendezvous for drinks and meals. The Surfers Beach Restaurant has fresh, familiar, absolutely crave-able food, with a large seasonal open patio style decking and water views from every table. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The restaurant specialises in Creole & International & Indian cuisine and is an oasis of taste and visual beauty.

Great food - but a tiny bit expensive, but what the hell. Courteous and attentive staff. Well worth the time and effort attending.

“Lovely Beach Side Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The cafe was right on the beach and there was lots of choice for the food and it was very nice. There aren't many restaurants with a view as good as this!

Had a lovely meal over looking the beach, great location. It is an inexpensive establishment and would recommend. Love the fact that you can wonder on the beach while waiting for your meal..

“Amazing setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We discovered this restaurant as an alternative to heading north of Mahé, Victoria or Eden Island. it was a most welcome change- the sea is literally at your feet, the fresh sea breeze refreshing. The hosts were charming as was our waitress who was also prompt with our orders of drinks and food. We ate fish and chips and pizzas and found them freshly cooked and very good; the portions were reasonable as were the prices. We shall most definitely be returning.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Wow what can i say, great location great people great food, I lived in Seychelles for 3 years and we always found ourselves heading south to surfers when the bustle of Victoria got to much, great Pizza and wide selection of meals all priced very reasonably. lots of tree cover around the beach to avoid the boiling sun, would recommend a visit from all who travel to Seychelles oh and when your heading out to surfers, dont forget your snorkel and mask.... simply stunning
