Had a very nice diner here. The food was delicious and had a nice twist of Creole and Asian flavors. We would recommend this restaurant to other people who would like to have a more ‘fine dining experience’ on Praslin.

Pretentious and overpriced for what it is. Music was loud and poor. Octopus salad was very hard. We had much better food for half the price and much nicer atmosphere in other places.
