What a lovely little gem of a place. With the weather on your side this is a must. The outside area is stunning even in the rain. The service was quick and the food delicious and the price was very good also. Defiantly a must for breakfast, lunch or dinner Big 👍👍👍

Breakfast in tasty with local fresh fruit with bread, local jam, butter and eggs. Recommend for dinner Mino's Special Pizza and grilled prawns. Friday and Saturday night live local musicians make your dinner time special in Seychelles!

Food fine - fish curry perhaps a little on the mild side. Comfortable seating. If we had not known where it was because we had been past in daylight we wouldn't have found it

Really nice place with simple and delicious food, everything we got there was freshly made. Great place for lunch or a quick bite. Eggplant fritters are a must try! 5 minute walk from gorgeous snorkeling beach.

Had dinner at Les Dauphins once. The food was OK but nothing special, was´t much food on the plate. When I ordered local beer from the menu I was told that they did not have it. They just had beers that was much moor expensive. The staff were quite unfriendly. It´s a pity as the restaurant is cozy. I did´t... More

Food and locations are really nice but prices are way over the top! It is unfair to pay that much for a simple family dinner with pizza and drinks. We will not go back.

The restaurants name means "Happy Dolphins" and you will feel you like a happy dolphin :) This restaurant is placed in Anse Royal which is the wonderful beach of Mahe island. Beach is 20 metre away. You can park your car infront of the cafe. In fact this restaurant is at the same place of Les Pieds Dans Leau hotel.... More

On Sundays, specialising in a full creole cuisine in buffet style. Wide range of local dishes, fish and curries - what a great meal. Atmosphere is good and located just short of the beach is an ideal venue for a relaxing and enjoyable location with good food and service.You know it's good when many local Seychellois come for lunch! Highly... More

We've been waiting for an hour for two simple dishes when there were only a few tables occupied around us. Really disapponting as it was placed both in the guide and is #1 on TripAdvisor. We gave it a second chance and it was no better. No way coming here again. Sorry.

Thank Viktorvs
