This beachfront Beau Vallon restaurant serves a dinner buffet at 430rupee or $35/person. There is a full bar here with a nice selection of beer and mixed drinks. The buffet itself is lackluster. There is a nice selection of salads and a smaller selection of hot entrees, none of which is worth taking a second lap around the buffet. The... More

We passed over few times and the super friendly waiter told us to come for dinner and try the buffet, with amazing traditional food and grilled fish plus deserts at the end! We got surprised with a very poor and awful buffet! All the starters tasted terrible, the options were very limited for main course, specially the grilled fish! Only... More

This wooden built restaurant is set on the beginning of the amazing Beau Vallon Beach in Mahe Island, Seychelles. It gives you the feel as if you're boarding a boat, well you can tell from the name. The staff are very attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is not so extensive with some local creole cuisine fusion and of course sea... More

We came here for dinner and found that we loved the place. There is no menu in the evenings, just a creole buffet where you can eat as much as you like and taste authentic creole food. More adventurous then choosing off a menu, you can sample different options and then decide which ones you're going back for. The desserts... More

We felt we had to go to see what all the fuss was about, it has good ratings and looked busy upon walking by. After reading several reviews I have to agree, SR430 is way too much for food from a buffet, it was passable but nothing to write home about. They only serve the creole buffet in the evening...

After all the recommendations that I've had, I found this restaurant/bar just average. This trip we just called in for drinks. I sat at the bar and waited for our drinks, while my kids played outside. I'd say it took about 30-40 mins to get our drinks, despite it not being that busy. Drinks aren't cheap, and again just average.... More

We went in Boathouse for tasting the tipical creole food. The dinner is always self service but it's possibile choosing a lot of different plates. The food was good and it's ok also for veggie people! Nice!
