“Disappointing and expensive!!! ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

So I came here the other day for lunch, and nearly choked on the menu prices which start at around sR250.
I ended up going for some tapas, with a sandwich, which ended up being majorly disappointing.
A turkey and guacamole sandwich turned out to be a slice of processed turkey, on a thin spread of guacamole, on a white tortilla wrap.
The patatas fritas were deep fried from frozen potato croquettes (the type you buy for kids at the local supermarket) and the "chorizo" were bite sized cold salami pieces.
Add one him and tonic, and a bottle of still water, my bill came to sR450 (R400/£30) which is by far the most expensive meal I have had on the island, for the lowest value for money.

I didn't want a full main course, only wanted some light bites...... Won't make that mistake again!

“Extraordinarily good - better than the rest on Seychelles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We tried most of the tripadvisor top rated restaurants on the island and la Plage really stands out! The food is excellent and La Plage would also have been a top restaurant in Paris, Brussels, London etc. The setting on the Beach doesn't make it worse of course. And if you know the normal "service-level" on the island be prepared for a shock: here the service is efficient, funny, and just really first Class. Have a look on the pictures we post on the picture site: the tuna steak in mustard sauce is SO brilliantly made. And: compared to Anse Solei Beach cafe this is downright cheap (what you pay here you would also pay for the same food in most main cities of the world). It is correctly priced.

“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Right on the beach, wide verandah with plenty of tables - we didn't book but still got a table outside although it was busy. Friendly waiters with excellent recommendations (not just on the menu but also where to go elsewhere in the Seychelles).

“Beautiful located on the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful located on the beach. Great atmosphere. The Tuna carpaccio starter was great. The mixed grill sea food was OK but a bit dry. It needed the sauce. The Red Snapper was quite dry and tasteless. But with the sauce it was great. Quite pricy. Overall I'm satisfied. Everyone around seemed to enjoy their evening.
