La Scala comes pretty highly recommended, but keep in mind that this is a big fish in a very little pond. It definitely plays up these airs. This explains, I suppose, why most patrons arrive dressed to the nines in what is essentially a fishing village. Its setting is dramatic, set into a hill, open air, all white stucco, with... More

Fresh tuna carpaccio with lime and pasta with fresh seafood. Could not go wrong with that. Everything was spot on, food and service.

Good food in relaxed atmosphere. We visited the restaurant twice, pasta/lasagne the first night and fish the second time and both meals were equally enjoyable.

Me and my husband spent our vacation in Seychelles during December 2016 and January 2017. We went to La Scala for dinner and wanted to try a fish. We both love Italian food and the owner helped us and explain the options. We had it grilled with vegetable, ginger, red pepper and potatoes. It was so fresh and delicious!!! The... More

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
