This review is a bit late coming. But I stumbled upon the manager's business cards today and remembered that the place was really worth a review. The food itself is not bad, but I did have better in other restaurants in Seychelles (namely on Mahe Island), and the menu at Bonbon Plume isn't overly extensive (i.e. not a whole lot of dishes to choose from), but there were a few exotic names on the list. As a careful eater, I stuck with a curry (something I know). Anyway, it was good. My cousin took a salad with squib , calamari or something and she also liked it. The prices were on slightly on the steep side, but given that this was a place that was basically at the end of the island (and required a bit of a drive along a curvy, and sometimes hilly road), it is clear that once you get there, you're not going to be able to go to another restaurant (even if you wanted to). Caveat: the place closes after lunch (at least on Sundays). So, don't think you can go there for dinner). This being said, I probably would have paid 10 times more and eaten bad food if I knew that's where I'd end up. The sea is of a deap azure blue, and the restaurant is right on the beach, and what beach!!! The whitest sand I've EVER seen. It's got a powdery feel that can't be beaten (not even a shred of pebbles under your feet). Another important aspect (for me, at least) is that there were just a handful of people on the beach. Usually, great places like this are swarming with pesky tourists. But Anse Lazio was a corner of paradise. I would go back there in a heartbeat, although besides the restaurant, there was NOTHING else in that area (especially once Bonbon Plume is closed). We were really lucky we got there on time to have lunch. A bus of Asian tourists arrived a bit before 4pm, the kitchen had already closed and it appears that the waiters had even already left). Go figure! True, the place is magnificent, but I guess it can get creepy after dark, as there are no lights. So, if you want to go, make sure to go between noon and 2pm. You can either take a swim before lunch or relax on the beach for digestion after you've had lunch. Perfect place for honeymooners looking for tranquility!!
