“Pirates Arms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

A favourite eating spot back in the 90's, went back for a famous omelette on a Sunday morning.....to be told that they only serve them til 11.00! The place only opened at 12. I could have one, though, without chips for an extra 5 Euro!!!!! Had a rather dry toasted sandwich instead. Slow service but a must do pit stop in Victoria

“Excellent Value Food and Ideal for Children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This can get busy but the restaurant of choice on Mahe for our 5 year old son, so much so that we drove into Victoria from Beau Vallon.

“A step back in time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I don't think the cafe has changed in 30 years, this is nice when sitting having a coffee but not so good when visiting the toilet! The juice wasn't good but the coffee fine. There is free parking behind the cafe but this is for anybody.

“Horrible food but cheap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The food was unfortunately terrible. Many dishes from menu were not available. Even fresh juices or diet coke was out of reach. Chicken curry had bones in it, the pizza was undercooked. Fish and chips stinked like old mustined oil. Restaurant has got no private toilets. It points you the public ones, which are horrible! The only good aspect was that waitress was pleasant and the food was quite cheap.
