Supposed to be a top pick but their lunch menu is ridiculous. Wraps and sandwiches are awful and all stuffed with a lot of cabbage/carrot salad. Welcoming staff advised it would have taken a long time because they were full (6 tables only) and at the end even brought a wrong sandwich! Atmosphere is pleasant. I hope for dinner it... More

We chose to eat lunch here two days in a row. Both times, my wife ordered the chicken and prawn curry and loved it each time. I ordered the honey chicken baguette the first and the steak sandwich the second. I have to say, the steak was one of the best meals I've had in the Seychelles. On top of... More

We had 2 great meals here. The seafood and pastas were very good and the complimentary transfers to and from the restaurant is an excellent touch.

We went for lunch as a result of other reviews - and we weren't disappointed. Lots of seating options, in shade, in sun, overlooking the beach or in the bar area. Service was friendly. Choice of baguettes, wraps, and usual shellfish / fish options too. Good range of smoothies, fruit juices, cocktails, wines, beers. Great Nespresso coffees too. Around 20... More

Tried their Salad and a creole dish both were excellent..The Salad seemed to be a crowd pleaser as many around the restaurant were having salads.. I also had a Takamaka Rum Mohito which was again very good.. The location is the highlight as it's right next to the beach so it's a very nice place to chillax with good food... More

My partner and I went to Cafe des Arts for dinner while we were on the island, and overall, though I heard good things, it was not a very good restaurant. I read about this place online so we wanted to check it out as opposed to always eating at a resort. We were able to get reservations for Friday... More
