My cousin and I stayed in Beau Vallon for nearly a month and proudly became "Boathouse Regulars" We had lunch there a few times which was never disappointing and the buffet was great. There was A LOT of different Creole dishes to try, things I would have never otherwise picked out on a menu such as tuna with mango and mint (on a menu no thanks, on a buffet yes please).

The staff is super friendly and always happy to offer a food or drink recommendation. One of my favorite people on the island is Anthony the afternoon / evening bartender. After a long day of hard work on the suntan, Anthony is ready to provide a cold Seybrew or rum punch and good conversation about the World Cup and island life.

We had the Creole Buffet here which was reasonably priced compared to other restaurants and okay. As someone else mentioned, the food wasn't labelled so we had to guess at what we were eating - not ideal. I wasn't convinced the food was traditionally Creole but we were assured it was!

The buffet food was ok but could have done with being labelled better to help identify what you were having.

Good lunch in the mid of the stroll on Beau Vallon beach. Good views on the ocean. My tuna steak was great, helped by a sip of local SeyBrew.

As always for Seychelles, price-to-quality is on the higher scale ($10 for a bottle of beer), but this is endemic to the whole country.
