“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We wait more than one hour - we were the first to arrive and order - for the starters. Then only one came, which was not what we ordered - and was terrible btw, spaghetti with unripe mango slices. We sent it back and asked the bill for the two beers we had, then the cook came out and started blaming the waitress. They don't seem to have the first idea on how to run a restaurant. Keep away.

“Grrrreat Pizza's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

We went here a few times and had great wood fire pizzas, location was beautiful and the prices were very reasonable. Not sure about the Munich connection but we would go here again on our next visit.

“Pathetic excuse for a restaurant!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Drove all the way out to Anse La Mouche for lunch at this place - waste of petrol and time!
The horrible food was only outdone by the most pathetic service on the island. If you've been to Seychelles you know that overall, the restaurant industry seems to pride itself on giving slow, poor service even when the food is good. Opera puts the worst to shame. Our waiter made a huge fuss about giving us seperate bills, then spent most of his time chatting up a bunch of drunks on the road in front of the restaurant instead of attending to us and his other clients. Unbelievable!
We had fish & chips - how difficult can it be to ruin that in Seychelles? It was hard and tasteless. My husband did enjoy his octopus salad however so I have to mention this fact.
Overall, I wish I could leave a sign in front of this restaurant to warn poor unsuspecting tourists. That's how bad it was! You would do better to pick up snacks & a soft drink or beer at a local shop and eat that on the beach than ever waste your time visiting this restaurant.

“Very poor food in atractive surroundings”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

The place looks quite nice the food is terrible and in any case Anchor Cafe is 200yds down the road and arguably one of the top 3 for food quality so why stop here!
