The ultimate in fine dining Set right on the beach, the Cafe des Arts Restaurant has earned its reputation as the best restaurant in Seychelles by creating outstanding mouth-watering dishes served in the most amazing setting. Seafood and epicurean dishes are the main attractions, making the restaurant the address not to be missed. The art is in the attention to detail and the fresh ingredients served to perfection with refined service and a touch of class. By day it is a sophisticated yet relaxed beach dining experience and by night the whole atmosphere transforms into a chic and elegant high-class restaurant with a sumptuous decor. Cafe des Arts is synonymous with gastronomy at its finest.

A few steps up from the best beach front on Praslin (Cote d'Or) this restaurant provides a good eating and drinking hole while keeping a watchful eye on your beach towels. Good food and reasonably priced for Seychelles

This is a beach front restaurant, but if ou want a table with a sea view, then they charge you 50 euros extra. If you do not wish to pay this exorbitant charge, then you sit in the cafe, with no sea view. The decor...More
