This is very nice, quiet restaurant with stunning views !!! We ate two different fishes- both were great! There are side dishes on small buffet - you can take as much as you like. If again on Seychelles- we will go there for sure ! There is a hotel together with the restaurant and we consider staying there even next... More

We stopped in on Chez Batista for lunch. The location is stunning right on the beach. Restaurant was very slow and looked like more of an evening location. Food was good not great.

We were strolling around the island in the afternoon, looking for a place to have dinner later in the evening and came to spot the restaurant. We decided to stop for a drink and check the place out. On the good side the restaurant is on a beautiful beach, the view is great and the fresh fruit drinks we had... More

The place looks like the paradise. One of the most beautiful beaches of Mahe, with an excellent restaurant serving fresh seafood. The grilled octopus is still served with a gravy but absolutely delicious and my mouth is still watering thinking of the mango salad which is one of the most delicious dishes I have eaten in 2016.

The view is awesome, however, the food is just decent. Since we arrived around 3 pm, the buffet was pretty cold and not really fresh. During the lunchtime it might be better.

We had our Christmas lunch at Chez Batista and I everything from the food to the band singing was perfect. The restaurant is located just on the beach so the view is outstanding, as Takamaka beach is very nice. We had a buffet with a lot of dishes to choose from, like chicken, duck, pork, fish, seafood and many other.... More

This reataurant serves few dishes and is overpriced. The view is amazing but nothing else. Last order is at 19.30. If you miss it you literally starve all night cz you cant get any food around in this jungle.

I had high expectations as I heard through the grapevine that it is supposed to be a good place - what a disappointment. I am really not demanding when it comes to food and am easy to please but this was just a disaster! 1. Unfriendly service, no smiles, no welcome 2. had to wait for an ice tea for... More

I ordered the 'fish and chips' but was told it was unavailable. The waitress suggested the boneless grilled fish. But, there were bones. Only paid for the Coke, left and never looked back. Skip it.
