Description: The ultimate in fine dining Set right on the beach, the Cafe des Arts Restaurant has earned its reputation as the best restaurant in Seychelles by creating outstanding mouth-watering dishes served in the most amazing setting. Seafood and epicurean dishes are the main attractions, making the restaurant the address not to be missed. The art is in the attention to detail and the fresh ingredients served to perfection with refined service and a touch of class. By day it is a sophisticated yet relaxed beach dining experience and by night the whole atmosphere transforms into a chic and elegant high-class restaurant with a sumptuous decor. Cafe des Arts is synonymous with gastronomy at its finest. The "Blue Octopus Bar" serves cocktails and other drinks. NOTE: Children under the age of 5 are not permitted.

Lovely setting by the beach and decor. There was no mention of a dress code at booking but they made my husband change into trousers. The food was eyewateringly overpriced so much that I ordered a starter for main! The food was good but definitely not worth the price.

Dining at Cafe Des Arts was one of our highlights of our honeymoon in the Seychelles. The setting is amazing - on the beach, with quirky art and statues in the restaurant itself. The food is absolutely delicious, some of the best fish we ate in the Seychelles. The service was outstanding - the staff were very polite and friendly and ensured we were enjoying our meal at every stage. The Owner also picked us up from our hotel and took us back later, free of charge, which was very kind and great to have the opportunity to chat to him about the place. The whole experience, end to end, was excellent. If you are visiting Praslin, Cafe Des Arts is a must.

There are 2 things that are very disappointing about this restaurant: first the waitress tried to charge me €50 to get a table outside. She said this would include a glass of wine. I think is an outrageous rip off and a shameful practice. Second, I was told that long trousers were mandatory for dinner. This seems a little bit over the top for a beach restaurant.

We didn't eat here but came later in the evening to enjoy the DJ and have a boogie on the dance floor. Great mocktails and cocktails at average prices.
