November 13, 2017 Leida Jutras

Sailing, diving, fishing and relaxing are the main activities for visitors to the 155 islands of this Indian Ocean archipelago. Mahé, Praslin and La Digue are the most popular islands. Mahé boasts 65 silver beaches, plus an array of restaurants, cafés, bars and casinos in the tiny capital, Victoria. The Seychelles are home to UNESCO-designated sites, coral atoll Aldabra and Vallée de Mai, called the Garden of Eden. Creole is the main language, but English and French are widely spoken.

La Perle Noire

Reviewed By Fligh - Ontario

We truly enjoyed our meal, all the dishes were fabulous. The steak and seafood bowl were outstanding.!What we found the most frustrating was the wait staff. They were forgetful, disorganized, sloppy and lacked professional training. Thank God the food was good because I wouldn’t go back if I knew I had to be served by that staff again.

Les Lauriers

Reviewed By Nadine P

It starts at 7:30pm and offers a huge buffet of different sides like fish salad, lenses, cucumber and tomato salad, grilled aubergines, octopus, potatos, etc... the chef is grilling fish,chicken and beef. My husband tried the fish and I had the steak and it was just perfect! Meat was soft and medium done and everything was very delicious. We also tried 2 cocktails but they were a bit strong for our taste. As it was raining heavily they closed the sides.
Though it is all you can eat and though we enjoyed it a lot, it comes at a high price. For to Times Buffet and two cocktails and one water we paid over 80€.

PK's @ Pasquiere Restaurant & Gastropub

Reviewed By Chris H - Bristol, England

PKs was recommended by the owner of the villas where we were staying.
The restaurant is on a bus route, but quite a climb up from the road. Easier access if you have a car…..
We didn't make a reservation for late lunch and were able to have a table at the front with a wonderful view.
Service was friendly, the menu interesting (including some Japanese noodle dishes) and the atmosphere just perfect.

La Scala Restaurant

Reviewed By Mike T

While heavily promoted La Scala lives up to the hype. Traditional, old school feel with longstanding owners and a well deserved high reputation. Attentive staff, nice cooking (fish was offered grilled, fried, creole style using the type of cooking as the choice to be made). Large portions, so go hungry and be sure to ask for an outside or balcony table which is cooler. Excellent.

Snack Bellevue

Reviewed By Eros - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

We had heard about the Bellevue Sunset dinner thru TA reviews but only got round to enquiring about it the day before. It was the highlight of our 16 days in the Seychelles celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary..
A crazy journey by truck to and from the restaurant up/down a very steep hill had us wondering if we would make it back in one piece! All good fun.
The sunset view was stunning looking out over La Digue to Praslin, Silhouette Island and Mahe. The preset dinner was excellent and we enjoyed fish, vegetable curry, barbeque chicken. Wine was reasonably priced (from 375 rupees)and we washed our dinner down with a South African Rose. Buying a bootle of wine lasts the whole dinner whilst buying an individual cocktail or drink will not last very long. Total cost incl wine for two was 1375 rupees.

Windsong Beach Restaurant

If enjoying delicious grilled food while on the white sandy Beaches of the Indian Ocean rim sounds like heaven to you, then look no further than Windsong Beach Restaurant. Designed in complete harmony with the natural surroundings, this beach side haven has everything you need for deep relaxation: the sounds of the sea, a delicious selection of drinks and dishes, and an unbeatably laid-back atmosphere.

Reviewed By BMKOE - Sydney, Australia

We had a few meals here as we were staying at the hotel. The food and service was very good. There were plenty of fresh fish, local curry and salads. I would really recommend the sashimi which is available from all restaurants at the hotel. There is also an extensive vegetarian menu. The grilled fish, prawns and other shellfish are fresh and very good and served with your choice of salads, vegetables, rice or chips.

Treasure Cove Restaurant

Reviewed By Mark L - Lusaka, Zambia

We were at the Treasure Cove Restaurant as a family of 5, with our youngest ages 6, 7 and 17.
The Chinese style fish soup was very good and the Creole fish was good. However I was very disappointed with the fruit bat stew, a local delicacy and one of my favourites on the Seychelles, which tasted refrozen and defrosted several times. I did complain about this and the waitress about this and they offered me to choose an alternative meal. Unfortunately, I had lost my appetite by then.
Nevertheless a decent place to visit but there are better options to choose from.

Del Place Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By ABC2412 - Vienna

We waited for low Tide so we could walk within 5 minutes from the Ephelia to this place.
Walking on the street I would not recommend, especially on this particular road and the local driving style in mind.
It is a lovely little tropical beach restaurant with excellent drinks and wonderful seafood. Considering one is on vacation, used to the local life style, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Very relaxed atmosphere, at sunset it turns into a Magic place.
When you feel you have to check your watch constantly, then you should reconsider
your motivation for staying there.The view is great, cocktails cool, time means nothing,
in short - life is very good there.
