I didn't like the food in the Seychelles because of quality of food. Maybe I wasn't able to find restaurants with great food and a good coffee, but this cafe was the only one of the many places we visited, where we ate delicious cookies and drank delicious coffee.
Sorry but we have been there in August 2013.

Imagine looking through tripadvisor the night before a birthday trying to find the best place in town to enjoy the occasion with friends. Imagine turning up excitedly to Kaz Zanana on the big day ready to celebrate in style with one of their famous chocolate cheesecakes and enjoy their highly-rated food and service. Then imagine being "greeted" by two members of staff thoroughly disinterested in the customer and who were only eager in shutting down the restaurant well before the scheduled time. Now, imagine some more:

Is it possible to sit in the main section? No, you may only sit in the chairs by the door. There you will be much less comfortable, feeling completely awkward as we stand over you, watching you contemptuously so you will hopefully leave as soon as possible.

Is it possible to order some food? Maybe a cake for the special day? No, only cookies. (At this point, please imagine the waitress waving her hand nonchalantly at the dry-looking biscuits all packed away on the side)

Well, is it possible to have a drink, please? At this point you must now imagine "The Look" as it forms slowly on the waitress's face. Some of you will know what "The Look" looks like. Others may have to imagine until they get to Seychelles. You immediately know what it means though.

Now imagine that this restaurant is rated 1st or 2nd on tripadvisor for restaurants in the Seychelles. You think that maybe you just went on a bad day. So you go back, despite the sense of heavy disappointment from the first trip, to try again.

So you imagine yourself walking in. Unfortunately you receive "The Look" before even sitting down. No, this time the staff are more interested in serving the local bigwigs and their friends in the main section. They are having a good time at least. You order your drink. You take a sip. It is weak and insipid. You know when the bill comes it will be vastly overpriced. You finish your drink thinking that it is all so disappointing but at least you now know you were not wrong the first time. You think that if this place is excellent, then you don't want to imagine what an awful place would look like.

But you don't have to imagine any of this. Unfortunately, I have lived it - so hopefully you won't have to.

Now imagine yourself somewhere with perfect food, friendly service, all at a reasonable price - the name of this place? It certainly won't be Kaz Zanana - Pink Salt.

Went for lunch in this small restaurant close to the town centre in Victoria. Taken through to a covered veranda in the rear garden surrounded by a small tropical garden. Service was polite with a good selection of lunch time dishes. Burgers, toasted sandwiches and excellent deserts were all tried. Some of the better food I have eaten in the Seychelles. A really good restaurant for lunch in a good location with nice atmosphere which I would recommend. Only draw backs are that it only appears open for lunch service and would probably be considered a little expensive by tourists.
