The tour was brief but informative. The old house was well maintained and the tasting was fun, if a little pricey. Better to buy the goods at duty free at the airport (this was cheaper that at the distillery). Worth a visit - for an...More

We had dinner and cocktails. The food was great, best dinner so far in the Seychelles. The plantage itself has been around since 1792 and still has some of that beautiful colonial style feeling. We will be back for the tour of the distillery &...More

We didn't manage to visit the distillery but went for dinner one evening and it was well worth it. The food was spot on, including the presentation. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and delicious rum for afters.

Went there with friends for dinner, didn't have much choice on the menu, the price is quite high too, the food portion was very small for the price, I don't normally eat a lot but still felt hungry after main course.

Home of the famous Takamaka Rum. Tasting of the various types in the shop was enjoyable. The staff explained the different rums and made recommendations based on our preferences. We found the prices at the airport duty free somewhat cheaper. I guess it is to...More

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.
