no seaview here, but you should go for the friendly staff and the good food. As starter, we tried the bat in red wine sauce (meat like game pigeon). Mains was very good fishfillet in saffran sauce and crab creole style. Prices on european level (as everywhere on Mahé)

This is a local restaurant which also provides some rooms since it is part of a guest house/small hotel. We only went there for the restaurant and therefore we cannot judge the rooms. The place is however a wonderful experience for dinner, very traditional and good local food. Run by an Australian, very nice gentleman, who takes great care that... More

We had three meals here, both lunch and dinner. The restaurant has a wide choice of dishes and a good wine list. Interesting Seychelles specialities include fruit bat (which we did not try) and chouchoute salad (which we did and was very nice). The marinated raw fish, the clams in white wine and the octopus dishes were delicious, though the... More

Went to have lunch with my sister and her husband last year. I've been around Anse Boileau like a thousand times, but I have never visited this place. Conveniently located and in a very quite environment. Fresh air from the nature and the ocean. The decor might not be the best but I guess that's capturing the real creole lifestyle.... More
