It has been a very pleasant surprise. The owner of our hotel suggested us to come here and we have been extremely satisfied. Good food, good Quality/price ratio. When we went there was live music. Service pleasant and quick. Go ahead!

This restaurant is on a historic site (plantation from 1792) complete with ruins, a working distillery, art boutique shop and garden. The staff was AMAZING and made our family (especially the kids) feel right at home. Definitely worth the upcharge on the food.

The Plantation House has been lovingly restored based on its original plans, and actually rests on its original foundations. The 200-year-old trees which line the Bilenbi Avenue are untouched and are on the site's original site plans. The property is also home to a beautiful garden from which our chefs proudly source their fresh herbs and spices. Takamaka Bay, our fabulously Seychellois rum, came to life in 2001 and was inspired by the D'Offay family recipe. It is used both in La Plaine St. Andre's bar and kitchen. By day, the grounds of La Plaine provide a tranquil setting for a day away from the beach - our petanque court pays tribute to our French heritage, our garden surrounding the historic ruins is a treasure trove for the nature-lover in you and our distillery is open to be explored from Mondays to Fridays. When the sun sets, the ambience of our restaurant changes dramatically; enjoy an intimate meal in our private dining room or on our softly lit terrace or an Al Fresco dinner under the stars.
