“Boat House”

Very enjoyable evening, excellent selection of salads for the buffet and great food. Good value, friendly and helpful staff. They would even bbq your own catch. Only thing missing is live music.

“Fantastic food and service, delicious tuna steaks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I visited the Boathouse on two occasions whilst staying the Seychelles. The first time with a large group of students, and the second with the other half of Jally,
Both times the food was just astounding. A wide range of food from the Creole buffet, all delicious. In particular, the tuna steaks were perfect. These were cooked in front of you by a lovely gent who would even cook them to your request! An they were divine.
The second time I ate there they had a live band, who really added to the atmosphere of the place and even managed to get people up for a dance!
On the downside, it was a little pricey, but we would definitely return.
Conclusion: fantastic Creole buffet with a real Seychellois atmosphere.

“A genuine Creole experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Everybody seems to visit The Boathouse during a visit to Mahe in the Seychelles! It is right on the seafront at the best beach for swimming and water-sports - Beau Vallon Bay - and each evening offers a real Seychellois buffet, usually with local music thrown in. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. you have to be there around 7.30pm and there is a bit of a stampede when the buffet begins, but there is plenty for all. Sea food is the obvious speciality.

“Boat House Creole Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Fantastic buffet dinner for just EURO12, you can sample the delights of authentic Creole cooking. Located on the corner as you enter Beau Vallon, you will be hit by the waft of BBQ smoke signalling the nightly buffet - looking right across the beach it's the perfect spot for a chilled beer or dinner.

“too expensive for what you get”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

The "buffet" is too expensive, just some trays with salad, curry, etc. Not so much choice to eat from, but the price is hefty in comparison to neighbouring restaurants.
