The beach and view is great, the restaurant had it's best years a long time ago. The food was average. The side dishes are awful, you have to get them in the middle of the restaurant by yourself. Looks like there were their since the morning. The pizza is very good, also the main course fish. The service is quite... More

Went for lunch, food was at best average but when told that side dishes were help yourself that were on the table in the center and they looked like they had been there for hours horrible. View is great but food and service users not. Will return to use the beach that's all.

My family and I visited this restaurant just today. The view on the beach, Anse Takamaka, was amazing and this was definitely one of the prettiest beaches we've ever seen. It took the staff some time to give us the menu and they just didn't seem very friendly. We had a tuna steak which was fine and a pizza margherita... More

Excellent location on a wonderful beach Takamaka but service and quality of food is far away from my experience few years ago.Go back to the roots as it was years ago.

We went there this June and wanted to have a drink and enjoy the view. Wonderful place but it closes at 6pm. The tax and service charge are additionally added to the prices for drinks.

Sunday Buffet. Necessary to book. Good range of choice at the buffet, reasonable quality but overpriced. Service indifferent and staff with better things to do than serve customers. View over the bay is very nice but not enhanced by loud, bland and bored band - don't get stuck in front of the loud-speakers as we did. Not particularly good atmosphere.... More

Awful. Any restaurant that expressly charges a different price for tourists and other for locals should not be considered as serious. Food was cold and service totally regular. Price charged there was something close to a fancy restaurant in Paris or London and quite the same of our hotel in Seychelles (and obviously the food at the hotel was thousand... More

We had lunch and drinks here, The Pina Coladas were awful and super expensive. The waiter took forever to bring our drinks and food. We had the tuna pizza and it was very average. Nice location right on the beach but that is the only plus point about this restaurant.

Chez Batista is serving buffet lunch with veggies, rice, chicken curry, steamed fish etc and all is freshly made and very tasting. On the terrace, you´re overlooking Takamaka beach which is one of the best sand beaches on Mahé. They also have several huge land tortoise close by. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

The shark steak was inedible: chewy with a funny chemical taste. The buffet food was bland, the service very slow. Overall overpriced. I was actually happy I did not get ill after eating there. Need I say more? We can definitely state we had the worst food here during our entire 2 weeks holiday. Maybe the cook had a bad... More
