Enjoyable lunch just staring at the sea. Few people there. Found the restaurant down a sign posted turn off. Worth a visit. Had local fish with rice and salad. Pretty good.

Don't eat fish there. It was horrible. We couldn't eat it and ordered pizza instead. It's a very simple place. Ok for a beer and a pizza which is still expensive. We couldn't see the sunset and the view is not great either.

We just had a drink here, but good food is available. This is really what you think of when think of the Seychelles : nice beach, cocktail in the hand, nice girl (my wife) next to me and what can be better

We’ve spent a half day at this gorgeous and untouched beach. Sat down under a palm tree, enjoyed the waves and freshly opened coconuts right out of the tree. Only set back is that there is no chance to take a shower after the pretty...More
