“Local and fun”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Loved the buffet and the atmosphere -- very local, busy, and good food. The grill offering is a little different each evening, mostly fish and chicken. Lots of creole condiments and heat if you like it! Service was pretty prompt on drinks, and we ate here twice during our stay in Beau Vallon.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The Boat House remains one of the regular choices for genuine Creole cuisine and the freshly caught fish, grilled to perfection, combined with spicy sauces, yummy galore.

“Fresh & tasty buffet, friendly staff”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We went to Boathouse 3 times during our stay in Mahé. I loved the food. It is very simple food, and fresh and healthy. I don't know why people are complaining about the food, unless they don't enjoy simple cuisine. It's clearly not meant to be a Michelin starred restaurant. It's meant to have a large variety of local foods. I was very happy to find a place on vacation that had food that was as if home cooked. They had plantain chips that were baked which were really delicious, fresh tuna on the BBQ every night, and several curries to choose from. The staff were really friendly. As for the price, it's worth it. Seychelles is expensive - you would pay the same price for your main plate only in many of the other restaurants and you would not have so much selection. I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Glad it's not just my opinion
Food was average(20£ buffet), service even worse, so it was very disappointing dinner
Glad there was a market 3 days per week with delicious food (3£ per portion!!!)

“Need to try a little harder”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Uninspiring. Food average. Unlabelled.

On the corner, with buses speeding buy during dinner.

For $40 a head, they might want to invest in some real chairs, instead of plastic chairs.
