“Great location, poor service and average food.”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We came here for lunch after scuba diving in the morning and were need of refreshment on a hot humid day.
It is a great location which overlooks the town of Victoria with great views of daily life.
The place was empty and we were greeted by a grumpy member of staff who took us to our table.
I asked for an orange juice and lemonade and was promptly advised ‘we don’t do that here’. I then asked for a fresh orange and a sprite in two glasses for my wife and to share and that wish was granted!

The service continued to be shocking throughout the meal and the food really did not make up for it, with average pizzas and an OK salad.

It’s a real shame that in such a location it could not be a real destination for locals and travellers.
I really wouldn't bother.

“Fab location, awful food, awful service”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Well what can I say about the location on the 1st floor of the prime building overlooking the main crossroads of the capital, Victoria. You can see Seychelles' very own Big Ben in the square and watch the local police guard the nation's courthouse for a great view and loads of people watching.

However, the food gets served cold and appears to have been slow cooked as my octopus curry was chewy so much so that I left most of it. The fish dish was bland and it was noticeable that all the customers were tourists there for the view and no locals with prior knowledge of their food. Service was from waitresses, seemed overstaffed and the staff didn't seem to want to be there. Wouldn't recommend.

“Too Hot!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner in this particular restaurant, the place was nice but we were so sweaty! There was some ventilations but realy too hot to me! I had the ribs and they were nothing special! But my wife got the fish and was good! Always go for the fish when you are in Seyschelles!

“Great banana split!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Stopped here after shopping and sightseeing in Victoria. Loads of choice of cocktails, fish dishes (which smelt good) and ice cream concoctions. We re-quenched ourselves with a banana split whilst watching the world go by on the clock tower roundabout.

“A nice lunch”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Good pizza and view but en-par with everywhere else in Seychelles when it came to price being quite steep. We paid about EUR60 for two beers, a juice, pizza and salad.
