Possibly the best meals I had in the Seychelles outside of the meals at the Constance Ephelia. The pizza here is amazing, and the other food (pasta, spring rolls) were pretty good as well. The service was quick and courteous. Lovely experience overall.

Really lovely setting. Cocktails are pretty good. Food was nice but nothing to go wild about. Service was friendly.

We were visiting this wonderful place for 11 days in August and we were stunned about the food quality, the variation and especially the superb service we received every day. I had a brooken leg and the staff and especially mr. Venkaya did their outmost to be helpful and make our visits perfect. We will be back next year!

I have been to the hotel a few years back but the change is remarkable, great taste and finesse in the decorations and settings. The restaurant is located right next to the beach.

The beef was juicy enough and the panini bread was so chunky and soft. The desert crepe was mouth watery itself. I wish I could try... More
