“Nice and cozy place and REALLY good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

During our stay at the nearby Acajou hotel my girlfriend and I visited "Praslin Museum" to have a look at the museum. The museum itself consists of a botanical and picture-based part. Very small but relevant and with a good host - Steve.

Praslin isn't floated with good restaurants so we asked Steve for advice.
To our surprise he told us that - besides running a museum - he also runs a guesthouse with dining. We decided to come back for dining the day after, said hello to a couple of guests and where met by Steve and his wife Janine. A very very friendly couple.

A bit sceptical about the food - like mentioned in the beginning Praslin is a bit low on restaurants - we found our table, and then...it turned out that Steve really is an excellent cook!

For starters we shared a plate of deepfried slices of fish. A nice tasting and snack-dimensioned dish.
While enjoying our starter Steve prepared the maincourse: Jobfish with creole sauce, Papaya-salad, and a fruitsalad based on "starfruit", mango and papaya. It tasted so incredibly good and there were food enough for three or four persons.
Everything was fresh, well-balanced on the sour/spicy scale and Janine - waitress and Steves wife - is a real charmer.

I can't recommend this place enough. It is that good - and by far the best place outside of Acajou (with it's professional staff and talented chef) we ate on Praslin. No doubt about that!

“OMUSEE GUESTHOUSE AND MUSEUM OF PRASLIN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We only stayed there for 3 nights but found it to be very clean, cozy, and close to the beach (300 meters). Very nice and helpful hosts (Janine and Steve). Steve also prepares dinner and is a very very good cook!! the guesthouse is in a tropical garden, they have fruitbats, turtles and fresh fruits from their own garden. They serve an abundant breakfast and very good dinner. The guesthouse is also a small "museum", selling locally produced vanilla, citronella tea and spices.

“LOVED IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011 via mobile

This is the smallest and most basic Museum you will ever visit and it is charming.
Steve Esther the proprietor has put it together himself and it is Steve who shows you round and gives a well rehearsed delivery about the artifacts. His knowledge is good and he is very committed to his business and his culture. I am lucky enough to spend several months a year on Praslin and always have visitors from the UK. Everyone who has visited the museum has enjoyed themselves. GO!
