The food was delicious. The prices were ok. You might need to book ahead in peak season. The service was nice but a bit slow (like everywhere in the seychelles, island time!)

Besides the French name you will find a great sea food restaurant runned by Otalians that know exactly what they are doing! I had local Tuna Caroaccio followed by Grilled Red Snapper. Wine list very decent and the cost was a pleasant surprise considering the "heavy" bills of the Mahe hotels restaurants. Make sure you book in advance and a... More

As a seafood lover, I found many tempting items on the menu. I chose the red snapper carpaccio as a starter. It was fresh and tasty, marinated the right way with wasabi, crushed black pepper, lime, and olive oil, and a surprisingly large portion. As main dish, I chose the tuna tagliata and requested it raw on the inside with... More

My husband and I had dinner here outside on the terrace and the food was excellent and very high quality. We really wanted to have some fresh fish and we were not disappointed. It is a very popular place, as we ate dinner at least 6 families were turned away because they were fully booked on a Thursday and Friday... More

Thanks for making my last... More

I've lived in Seychelles for 3 years and I have to say this is the best restaurant I have been to. I didn't even know it existed. Incredible seafood. Lamb chops sublime. I can't say one bad thing about it.

We tried fish fillet with mango, chilly sauce and rice along with fruit punch and juice. The taste and presentation was very good. The best thing about this restaurant which I also read in other reviews amd experienced myself that the staff is very courteous. The owner is himself there to attend people very generously. Our dish had option to... More

During my stay in seychelles, we decided to go to this restaurant not knowing what to expect. It was only a 3 minute walk from my hotel (Savoy) and make sure you have reservations before you go because it is always so busy there. We went for dinner and stayed for dessert. The food was above and beyond what I... More

Visited with family. Service was good and the host ensured smooth operation. If you are looking for traditional italian then hard to find in Seychelles. The cappacio of fish with lime and wasabi ( not italian ) was excellent. Would recommend the beef and fish dishes however italian dishes are limited. Great atmosphere and quirky.
