Dear Angie S, Thank you for your comments. We are disappointed to read that our buffet did not really impress you. Even though we offer a variety of dishes (about 8 different salads, 2 fish dishes, 6 main dishes, rice and 3 different desserts) this does not always impress every one.

We had a very tasty Seychellois Friday evening dinner, entertained by a guitarist / singer. Service was good (I do adjust expectations to relate to island time - it is good for me when on holiday!). A lovely evening and we had a table for 8 - sat on the vreandah looking out to sea. Recommended!
