Ater spending the day under the sun on the beach in Seychelles , I found this place by accident and walked in with no expectations, but as I entered it I felt there is something special about it. This bar-restuarant is wakingup to live in sunset and become vivide as soon it's getting dark... You then realize that you found... More

I'm very surprised at the overwhelmingly positive reviews for this place because when we went for dinner, all we discovered was that it was trying way too hard to be high-end restaurant with fluff and gimmicks which amounted to nothing in the end. When we arrived we got our drinks very quickly and they were very good, but it all... More

A special place run by a very nice service oriented Belgium lady, and the food is some of the best we have ever had although a bit on the pricy side. Worth it ! Budha statues are charming and give the place something special. Very nice inside, but we chose outside. Unfortunatly a bit spoiled by too load music and... More

We had a very good dinner experience, the food was gourmet and the service impecable. The atmosphere of the place was really laid back, relaxed and enjoyable. The only thing I would improve is the cost, I found it to be a bit much even for Seychelles, and I don't like that they add 7% after tax as service fee.... More

We attended dinner on Christmas Day and were very excited because we had read the good reviews and had thought the restaurant would be closed on Christmas but drove by to find that yay! they were open! However, from the get go, we never really felt fully welcomed... Perhaps it was because they only wanted people taking their full Christmas... More

Lounge 8 is a true gem and not to be missed! Set atop waves breaking against the rocks below with a serene garden and modern seating area, this restaurant has something for everyone! We went on advice from a local and it was an amazing find!!

My wife and I tried Lounge 8 after we decided against our original choice at Banana Leaf upstairs and we're glad we did. I must admit the Buddha garden style didn't do it for me, but that wasn't the main draw. The food was very good indeed, with some real flair in the kitchen. Although we were the only couple... More

Amazing find on Mahe. Delicious food made with love. Amazing comfortable relaxed atmosphere next to the ocean. I would recommend the tiramisu to finish! Yum! I will be back again soon!

Following recommendation from a local we went to this restaurant and loved it! Had one of the best cocktails of my life (mojito royale) listening to mellow and lovely music, with the waves as a background, friendly service and of course, excellent food. My only suggestion for improvement is that the bill was a tiny bit pricey, but it wasn't... More
