Not many options outside of hotels for breakfast. The boat house advertised pancakes.....only options for breakfast were full English breakfast or continental....there was 1 more but I don't recall. Do not order the continental.....hard white thin cold toast, apples and melon with no flavour or about to turn......concentrated orange juice.... Not what I expected and would not recommend......

This place does some nice cocktails late afternoon - nice to chill out and watch the sunset by the beach.

The location is very good and the front of boat house is Seychelles famous beau vallon beach. The salads and vegetable dishes were delicious and it's almost all I had having been starved of decent fresh veg and fruit.

Went there with mixed expectations, some say it's great, while others found flaws and negativities. We arrived at 7 pm to discover that the buffet opens at 7:30. We decided to spend the half hour at the bar. The bartender was pleasant, well mannered and helpful. The cocktails were basic but fresh and good tasting. We then hit the buffet... More

The poor choice of dishes & dreary presentation (not helped by the poor lighting) looked like we'd come at the end of dinner (which we hadn't). From the street, it looks lively and exciting, but it's not like that when you are in there. The bar was good.

Very good spot if you want to eat fish. We truly enjoyed our our lunch here. Mahi with passion fruit and cappers was amazing choice! The children's meals were also very tasty.
