Could not get in first night as we hadn't booked in advance. Although the restaurant was empty they only have enough food to cover the later bookings. We did get in another night and the food was very good. Cost for a family meal (2 adults and 3 young children) was £140.00 but this was in line with most restaurants... More

I have eaten here 3 times now and each time the blackened fish has been excellent. It is a house speciality. Prices are reasonable too.

The west coast has with few choices for dinner. If you're tired of driving around looking for open takeout, mine as we'll settle and get fed. It's not cheap and just mediocre.

We happened on this place by chance having rented a car and just driving down the coast road, we had been on the beach across the road for a couple of hours, really shallow bay btw, we both ordered a burger for lunch, as the place was busy it did take half an hour for the food to arrive, suited...

As we stayed in Anse la Mouche we ate a few times here. Decent price/quality with friendly service. The choice for lunch is limited but the food was fresh and tasty. If you make an Island Tour of Mahe it is a nice place to enjoy a drink or a meal.

The family and I stopped by after a day at the beach since this was on the way back to Eden island. The outdoor seating was nice and the kids enjoyed the decor of various animals around the restaurant. After we were seated it did take some time to place an order (which happens a bit on the island) however... More

This cafe/restaurant has a nice spot across the road from the beach, with a nice terrace. In the full sun which isn't to everyone's taste but for me it's perfect! There is shade inside. Service was friendly, and quick. I had pan fried Job fish which was quite simply perfection. We sampled many lovely dishes in the Seychelles but this... More

We dined on the penultimate day of our stay but wish we had visited sooner. It was well worth a return visit. Everybody enjoyed their food. I had the fish & chips which was presented UK style in a golden herb encrusted batter. It was amazing. The waitress was genuinely happy and warm. Superb views too.
