“Gorgeous octopus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Very simple beach hut serving excellent seafood, we tried the octopus curry and octopus salad, one of the best dishes during our 10 days in the Seychelles, and affordable for a change!

“Amazing fish curry.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Unfortunately we only found this place on our last day, I had not looked at the exact location before we arrived and we didn't venture round the north east of the island until our last day. Having passed on our bicycles we decided we had to stop on the return journey which we did, initially for fruit juices. We then decided we had to try something to eat as we had read the great reviews on here, we were not disappointed. We ordered a fish curry to share and when it arrived it looked so good and it tasted amazing. This is a very relaxed place, with benches just across the road from the beach and as others have said lots of animals to keep you amused whilst waiting for your food. The whole family help out cooking and serving and they are all very friendly. Don't miss a trip here if you visit La Digue, you won't regret it.

“Worth of biking a few miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

On a way to beach Anse Cocos, which was the best beach on island, discovered Chez Jules place. First sight to the place may be a bit weird as chickens and dogs are running around on the tables but :) you get the best octopus salad and best grilled fish!! Biked there and back every day (8 km) to enjoy his food.

“DELIGHTFUL & DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Along our cycle route we found this little oasis on the side of the road with a wonderful view of the ocean. Simple road side restaurant with wooden benches on the road side under shaded trees, with a large tortoise and some chickens to keep you company. Jules is friendly and helpful with advice on what to order. Small menu, reasonable prices for the Seychelles and tasty food & fresh fruit juices. Jules prepared calamari to my husband’s preference, and I enjoyed a delicious fish/tuna curry; and we both enjoyed a refreshing fresh lemon juice. Definitely worth a visit.
