Visited for lunch and this was a welcome break during a full day tour round the island. Restaurant is situated next to the beach and the seating areas overlook the sea. Food was excellent and would certainly recommend the fish. Reasonably priced. Only downside was the inefficiency of the serving staff as the restaurant wasn't busy. The older lady taking... More

We chose the restaurant off a map and were really surprised with what we got. We stopped for lunch and sat at one of the tables right off the beach. Service was great. We had been on the island for our wedding and so had eaten at some up market restaurants but this beat all of them. My wife ordered... More

Food is Ok. Nothing to add. And rather expensive. On the beach which is a plus. You have limited choice around. So... Eat there if you can't find another place.

Thank Olga B
Management response:

Dear Olga B As you will see from other reviews people do appreciate our food and great tasting dishes. You should be aware that Seychelles imports 90% of its food products from overseas and hence restaurants and hotels would tend to be a bit more pricier than other parts of the world. When you come to Seychelles to holiday you... More

Great food and views. Only downside is that we found this place at lunch time on our last day on mahe! Wish we found it sooner! 6 of us ate there and we all enjoyed our meals! Standouts were the seafood plate and the mixed grill, also the calamari. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for &... More

We're that wonderful, casual seaside spot where locals gather with old friends, and meet new ones. A welcoming, comfortable place for a family meal or a high-energy afternoon-evening & late-night rendezvous for drinks and meals. The Surfers Beach Restaurant has fresh, familiar, absolutely crave-able food, with a large seasonal open patio style decking and water views from every table. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The restaurant specialises in Creole & International & Indian cuisine and is an oasis of taste and visual beauty.
