Stunning location just in front of the sea, romantic and elegant atmosphere. The food is good and well-presented yes, but does not impress who is used to high-level restaurants (as this place want to appear). It is anyway the best choice for Praslin’s standards if you are tired of casual restaurant and looking for an elegant dinner.

Compared to other local restaurants this was far the most expensive. Booking is required, check if you are within their free taxi too and from pick up area. (Even walking distance can be hazerdous as there are no footpaths or street lights) Wednesday is disco night. Service, location and menu were excellent. This said we ate at cheaper but equally...

Good service, not the biggest portions for the money. The menue is not the usual one and the meals are tasteful.

Very modern, stylish and large restaurant located on a beautiful beach. We visited once for lunch. The food was nice and they offer lots of cocktails. The only annoying thing was they played the same old songs all over again. Nice chillout music/beach house would be better.

Just aside the beach the menu propose a choice of local food and snacks for lunch as local beers and fresh fruit juices. The staff is nice and service quick if the restaurant is not busy. For dinner you should make a reservation.

The name of this restaurant is very fitting. Once you step food inside this cafe you are surrounded by boldly coloured local art. The restaurant is situated along the beach and specializes in seafood. They have a variety of fish and shellfish on the menu including grouper, red snapper, calamari, and shrimps. The specialty is lobster platter which looked fantastic.... More

I am sure this is a nice restaurant and that food is delicious... however we were unlucky with their waitress who since we arrived was nothing but rude to me and my wife. She had restrictions on the menu and we could choose freely what we wanted to eat just because it was on the kids menu.

We went there and we decided to leave and not eat, the waitress was so rude since we arrived. We tried to order some fish and chips but as we weren't kids we couldn't have it. Also we were going to have some milk shakes as well but we preferred to cancel our order due to the bad attitude of... More
