We ate here twice we enjoyed the food so much! Great setting right on the beach. It's a great place to spend the day! We found the eateries in Seychelles expensive and the food disappointing until we ate here!

Surfers beach restaurant is a lovely restaurant that serves good quality food at affordable prices. Just walking up to the restaurant is already a lovely experience. It`s modern, light, tastefully decorated and next to the beautiful and lovely beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful.Worth a visit for Lunch and/or Dinner. Clean, spacious and good service with a fresh modern feel, extensive menu.

What a fantastic dinner experience. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Everything is made as you order it and the taste certainly reflects that quality. The food is consistently good and hot. Prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is quiet with soft music. If you are in Mahe ,Seychelles, give it a try!
I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant highly.

The location is nice! Right on the beach and the stuff is friendly and nice, but the service is a bit too slow and irresponsible.
we had 1 hour for eating in that nice place, we arrived at about 1:36, the restaurant was 45 % full, the order was taken in the next 7-10 minutes.
We ordered one Pizza: 4 seasons with extra beckon, 1 club sandwiches and drinks.
the drinks came in firs 5 minutes and then for the next 40 minutes we were waiting for the rest of the meal. As the time was running out we went to check if the Sandwiches and the Pizza were ready, the Manager told us to wait another 10 minutes and that the pizza is in the oven and club sandwiches are not even ready yet. But hey guys come on to make Sandwitches and a Pizza - 50 minutes???!!! We canceled the sandwiches and as for the pizza we got Hawaiian pizza without even pineapples instead of 4 seasons with extra beackon:) - The size and the color for the Pizza are so SAD :(
And for sure we have been charged 10 % for service and 20 rupees for extra cheese:)
Come on guys be serious!
Pictures inside:)

Thank you for your review on Surfers Beach Restaurant, we are sorry if you felt inconvenienced by the service. However as the manager and the person who dealt with your order when you came to see me at the counter I would like to set the record straight on what you have said in your comments.

On the day you arrived it was obvious you could see that we were very busy with a lot of customers, Your order was taken at 1:50 pm after you sat down at your table and were given the menu by the waitress and finally decided on what you wanted . I know this because we write down the time on the order paper from the waitress when she leaves your table in the top right hand corner. You were also advised in advance that there could be a slight delay due to the kitchen dealing with a lot of other orders before yours. Your order was for 1 pizza 4 seasons with extra bacon and cheese and 1 club sandwich plus your drinks. The drinks were served in a timely manner within 5 mins of taking your full order like your review says.

You then say in your review you waited for another 40 mins which would have put the time at 2:30 pm. This is in fact incorrect on your part as when you came to see me at the counter the time was actually 2:15 pm and your pizza was ready, 25 mins after your order was taken. I informed you the club sandwich would be ready in another 5-10 mins and was actually being prepared at the time you came to see me and was about to come out. You then decided to cancel the club sandwich and elect to take the pizza as a takeaway & pay your bill and leave. I informed you this was not a problem and apologized for the inconvenience. You were okay with this as you yourself told me that you did not have long for lunch and needed to depart.

On the question of being served the wrong pizza you are again in fact uncorrect as I can confirm what you did get was a 4 seasons pizza extra bacon and cheese. There was a slight error on my behalf by putting your 4 seasons in the wrong box which was labelled by myself as 1 hawaiin which was supposed to be for another pizza about to come out as a takeaway for another customer. The standard size of our pizzas is 30 centimetres to fit our plates and take away boxes which is a very generous size for the price.

Now had you been a little more patient and because you elected to take your pizza as a take out I would have waivered the 10 per cent service charge as we do not charge this for takeaways, but you appeared to be in a rush and wanted to be on your way ASAP which did not give me the chance to adjust your bill accordingly even after I was trying to explain this to you.

I can confirm and reiterate therefore what you had was a 4 season pizza with extra bacon and cheese which does carry an extra charge of 10 SCR per extra topping and this is clearly indicated on the A la carte menu. We do take our business seriously unlike what your review suggests and furthermore we are not a fast food outlet and it is inevitable that when we have a lot of tables with guests it is expected that there will be a short waiting time, however in this case it would have appeared that although the food was about to be served to your table your impatience got the better of you.

In light of this however we do apologize for any inconvenience you felt may have been caused towards you. I am sure you enjoyed the pizza however and if the colour did not appeal to you it was most probably the extra cheese topping you requested which did this.

I would also just like to say as well that the Hawaiin pizza does come with pineapple toppings but you would not have seen this because you actually got what you ordered a 4 seasons with extra bacon/cheese in a Hawaiin labelled take out box. I thougt it would be best to respond to this review you have written in order to set the records straight and at the same time offer our apologies as well.

Thank You

Marlene Young.
