The atmosphere takes one back in time as the location is a french colonial style house with beautiful gardens and the distillery is to the side. the cuisine is a delicate blend of cultures and flavours all beautifully balanced, subtle and modern without being pretentious....More

Traditional plantation style building is from several centuries back.The main building is Creole restaurant and one of the other building is home to "Takamaka Rum" You can enjoy excellent Creole cuisine and taste various kinds of Seychelles rum.

The building is a treasure. Old plantation style, very interesting and unique. Take Note: it is next door to the Takamaka Distillery. Make sure your driver knows this! Our driver couldn't find the restaurant and this was unsettling (as we didn't know the distillery was...More

We had gone to see the Takamaka distillery when we chanced upon this restaurant. It looked rather charming so we decided to have lunch & sure don't regret it. It's located in an old colonial house, very tastefully kitted out. But the al fresco space...More

Great place, great food and most importantly great attitude from people there. This is the must visit place when you are in Seychelles! When you are there take tuna tartar and bouillabaisse soup. Please put special attention to unbelievable cocktails based on Takamaka rum.

The Plantation House has been lovingly restored based on its original plans, and actually rests on its original foundations. The 200-year-old trees which line the Bilenbi Avenue are untouched and are on the site's original site plans. The property is also home to a beautiful garden from which our chefs proudly source their fresh herbs and spices. Takamaka Bay, our fabulously Seychellois rum, came to life in 2001 and was inspired by the D'Offay family recipe. It is used both in La Plaine St. Andre's bar and kitchen. By day, the grounds of La Plaine provide a tranquil setting for a day away from the beach - our petanque court pays tribute to our French heritage, our garden surrounding the historic ruins is a treasure trove for the nature-lover in you and our distillery is open to be explored from Mondays to Fridays. When the sun sets, the ambience of our restaurant changes dramatically; enjoy an intimate meal in our private dining room or on our softly lit terrace or an Al Fresco dinner under the stars.
