“Excellent food with awfull service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

My review may not suite everybody, couse we made a dinner for 60 pax there. The location is nice, right on the beach on the sunset side (thought quite far from most of the hotels), so if you come for dinner you may enjoy a beautiful sunset. The food is really good, expecially for Seychelles where you can rearly find good food outside hotels. But the service was so bad that it almost spoiled the party we had their. It was very slow (veeeeeery very slow), unfriendly and even arrogant. Almost everybody from the staff including waiters, musuicians and the restaurant's manager (who is the owner's wife). When we tried to push them and asked to make it faster, the only answer was: "Don't be so stressful". It may help when you are on a lazy vacaions with no rush, but in our case it was quite frustrating, ecpesially that the dinner was fixed 6 months in advance and the restaurant was advised about the profile of the guests.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

We were there on a Sunday and it was "crowded". Make sure you have a reservation, we did and still they could not give us our table because somebody else took it already, they said. Well, we sat down at another one but that was not a good start.
It was a buffet... And we had to get in to the line and it would typically take 20 min to reach the buffet, 10 min to take the food, so it was overall half an hour tour for one of us.
The food was allright, we liked the drinks too. But the ones in Le Rendez-Vous in Victoria were so much better. And interestingly in Seychelles they charge locals differently, and here too they charged us more.
The restaurant's location is so good, it's right on the beach. We enjoyed the view while eating.

“Good food...Excellent location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2011

chez batista's restaurant is very nice, located on a very beautiful beach, surrounded by huge granite rocks. You can have lunch or dinner while facing the ocean...the food is good, it is mainly a buffet, a little poor but good taste! so it is worth going there, as it is not expensive!
