We had read a few reviews of this restaurant and decided to give it go on the last night of our honeymoon! I am so glad we did, it was an amazing restaurant. The mood is completely different to any other restaurant that we went to in the Seychelles. The decor is great with large stone buddhas and subtle lighting. The wine choice was by far the most diversified we had seen since arriving in the Seychelles and the surprise menu was...well a surprise!

For our surprise starter we had shrimp salad that was full of a variety of flavours, fresh shrimp and a slight chilli tang to the dressing. Then came our main which was job fish in Masala sauce. I was expecting a bit more for the main course especially after such a delicious starter.

If you don't like fish then i wouldn't recommend any restaurants in the Seychelles as the main delicacy is fresh fish. Then for dessert we had chocolate cake.

It really is a nice novelty restaurant that you should check out once whilst in the Seychelles

What an amazing place! The food was fabulous, service was brilliant. Be sure to arrive to watch the sunset on the top deck beforehand and take a camera. The setting, food, music all were part of an experience we'll never forget. Each course was prepared was prepared with attention to detail. We really, really enjoyed the entire evening.

We loved everything about Lounge 8....it is chic, funky and radiates with style. We even enjoyed the atmosphere when it rained while we were having cocktails outdoor. We loved the surprise menu, the food was good, service superb and the owner wasn't what we expected......he was EXCEPTIONALLY PLEASANT!

Thanks for a great experience, thanks for good tasting food and thanks for sharing your joy. We loved every moment and after several days, I'm still tasting that Lemon Tart!!!

Love from Dubai.....Mike & Moya
