Slow service because the were under staffed at "happy hour ". One table if 8, one table of 4 and 2 tables of 2. They should be able to handle all of us with two servers but no. They measured the drinks using jiggers. (Shot glasses)

There were a few good dishes as part of their evening Creole dinner buffet. We liked the grilled barracuda. 12 salads, 6 mains, and 3 more items from the grill. Desserts were not special. A little pricy, but on par with restaurants in the Seychelles. Drink service was a little slow. Starts a little on the later side, at 7:30.... More

The whole experience of it was great! Very local! an open space and nice people. But go there for that, not for the food. The food was average, and there was no service really (it's a buffet) the guys were smiling, and quick to bring us drink, so that was nice...

The boathouse serves breakfast, the ready prepared type which depending on how hungry you are is fine. We enjoyed very good coffee here and if you are out early, you could do much worse than give it a try. Right on the Beau Vallon seafront, I would assume it is a good nighttime venue

Fish with caper sauce was fresh but average... we both found the chicken curry quite good but a little bit oily. Apparently the selection at dinner is a much better value since it's a buffet.
