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

Extensive menu and attentive service - after a week on the island, the most attentive so far. You name the language, they accommodate accordingly. If all that was not enough, the food is simply wonderful. Highly recommend the fish soup and the seafood baked gratin but it all was so good! We will be back again at least once more... More

Every restaurant we went to in Seychelles felt like it took foreverrrr to eat and get our food and waiters don't do anything with a hustle. It was refreshing that this place had great service. Had a table of 8, which we reserved and it was ready for us when we got there, with bread out and fresh coconut slices... More

After a busy day in the beach, what better way to wind up than to relax over a delicious Italian or Creole meal at the reputed La Scala. The personal care of the staff to make you enjoy the meal with the family is what stands out about this restaurant.

We went twice and loved the food. We had fish & seafood and can highly recommend this place. It is a bit remote and you either need a car or take a taxi to get there. It is only open for dinner and opens at 19.15 (sharp) so don't be there too early.
