This restaurant has been around for 39 years and has had the same owner for the last 34 . I saw a few TripAdvisor reviews stating over priced and not good quality. Well I gave it a try and was nor disappointed. The same friendly service that I experience on my first visit over 10 years ago. The food was... More

I am still in shock over the disappointment with this restaurant. By far the worse we have been to during our stay on the Seychelles. Completely overpriced and serving food I could make myself at home. This has to be the first time in my life I go to a pretending to be Italian restaurant where pizzas are not on... More

Having spent 6 nights in Bel Ombré and eaten in a number of different restaurants this was certainly one of the best. Prices very reasonable, service excellent and the food served hot, good sized portions and well cooked. The terrace restaurant enjoyed a good atmosphere. Traditional Italian, seafood and various meats. Drinks at sensible ( for the Seychelles) prices. I... More

I really like how the restaurant was set up. The walls were painted white and for some reasons I felt like I was in a Greek Island. The food was great especially my entrée, a fresh mango and heart of palm salad. I had a grilled grouper with creole sauce as main which was also beautifully cooked. Service was spot... More

This restaurant is situated near the end of the road in Bel Ombre. As with most restaurants we saw in the Seychelles, it has a roof but is otherwise open to the elements. Although overlooking the ocean, the view is limited. La Scala has an "exclusive" feel, I'm guessing not often frequented by the locals as prices, although not outrageous,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us before our trip to Seychelles so we decided to try it. I had the lasagne and my husband a steak, both of which were disappointing. Seafood seems to be their specialty so it may be fine if you are a lover of fish which we are not. Staff weren't the friendliest and I was... More

The setting of this restaurant marks it as a place of distinction. Set back slightly on a steep slope, overlooking the sea, the slightly ramshackle but romantic look of the place is so very inviting. There is a covered patio, an interior open dining room, and a really cozy bar area. You might be mistaken you were visiting someone's private... More
