Came to this restaurant last week-end with a few family members and girlfriend. We had a nice table reserved for us with a beach view which was quite nice, we all decided to eat from the buffet, I found the food average, it could've been better but the fish was cold and the battered aubergine was a bit mushy and...

Nice restaurant with friendly staff close to the beach. We had dinner at the Dauphins 4 out of 5 days, and for every course new great taste. Absolutely recommendable!

This place has a lovely setting on the beach excellent menu too. The service was friendly and efficient. We had excellent tiger prawns and red snapper with cold beer. People Remember when visiting the Seychelles we are on 'Island Time' so if you expect Europe fast service you will always be disappointed. Slow down you're on vacation.

This is a lovely location right on the beach with parking. I imagine at lunchtime you can see the sea but at night you can't . You can hear the waves. When we arrived we were seated at the table I had reserved and told that we couldn't have the menu yet as they were all taken. We waited about... More

We went there for lunch and had a great experience. The place is peaceful, the people are really friendly and service good. However, don't be in a rush because service is really slow. But it worth it. We had sea food (fish) and it was fresh and very good, one of the best of our stay ! And last but... More

We went for an early lunch, I only got the eggplant fritters which were yummy and my husband had red snapper which he said was good. Restaurant was nice and employees were friendly.

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 👍👍👍

Regretfully a disaster: esthetically the venue feels tasteless, just as the food. I thought there's no place on the island, where one could spoil a red snapper (a fish!) so much, as to render it unedible. Chicken curry tasted less than mediocre. Pizzas overdone with too much cheddar on top. Service in the usuall, french fashion: deigning attention combined with... More

Greetings Mr Burek_Polny We thank you for visiting our establishment.

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
