Well cooked dishes served for the buffet, good variety of protein - beef, snapper, job, shark, pork - and the smoked fish salad was amazing. Make a reservation as it was filling up right when it opened at 7:30pm!

We stayed at this hotel/resort and ate here twice. Both times it was great. Excellent meat and fish from the BBQ and lots of side dishes as well. Best food we had at Praslin

Les Lauriers has been running for many years now and it never ceases to disappoint. Pricey perhaps, but good food isn't cheap and cheap food isn't good. Edwin catches the fish fresh daily and I have no idea how he cooks the Bourzwa (Red Snapper) to make it melt in the mouth and taste almost like chicken! The Breadfruit and... More

Despite criticism about the buffet on TA, we decided to check it out and were very pleasantly surprised! Yes, you do need to make a reservation before and get there prior to 7:30pm, but you will not be waiting hours to get at the food or a refill! The buffet is beautifully set up and tastes absolutely amazing - possibly... More

Tasty buffet, particularly for the seafood grill. Nice location. The price is high considering the service the coarseness of the owner and impoliteness avarice of the "grill-man". Keeping up appearances, but nothing special. Just try it once and than try something else.

This buffet was the place to be on a Friday night! Beautiful spread including a BBQ and lots of local dishes. My favorites were the smoked fish salad, BBQ chicken, mango salad and cheesy potatoes.

My party of three ate at Les Lauriers this week. Several pluses and minuses. The buffet is good but the buffet lines are chaotic. You use the same plate over and over again. I had to use a bowl from the soup area to clear my scraps off my plate to go for seconds for the items I liked. Eventually... More
