The restaurant is super expensive for the tiniest of meals. So, after the meal you can pay a hefty entrance fee to walk the gardens. Much of the garden is not maintained and it cannot be accessed easily. This could have been an excellent tourist...More

The garden is quite big and nice, a lot of plants with names and descriptions. Also turtles and rabbits can be interesting for children. Some parts look like real forest, some are very cultivated. We did not regret coming there, but no wow-effect. Suveniers shop...More

Maybe this garden had a good time. No it is not taken care off. More chickens and rabits in bird cages then healthy plants or animals. There's one Ara with one eye with bad feathers and no food or water. They have about 20 Seyschelles...More

Just follow the signs in the direction of the garden and you will have to go up a steep hill until the complete end. It is totally worth it and for us a totalust see. Admission fee is 125 SCP for an adult. You will...More

Bonjour , je vous rejoins absolument concernant votre avis sur ce jardin! nous rentrons aujourd'hui de Mahé , concernant la jardin en lui même , on aime ou on aime pas, a chacun de se faire sa propre idée, même si le prix me semble un peu excessif , mais nous n'avons pas tous les mêmes moyens après tout! par contre coté resto en ce qui nous concerne nous avons trouvé cela ABUSIF!!!!!, je m'explique: notre fils de 11 ans a prit un "sandwich" au jambon, enfin plutôt deux tranches de pain de mie, coupées en triangle pour donner l'impression de quantité.....ma compagne a prit un"gratin de fruits de mer", sans réellement de gout, style surgelés Picard, bien que je pense que c’était fait maison, et moi une salade de poulpe, servie dans un ramequin , minuscule avec 3 feuilles de salades et 4 ou 5 tout petits morceaux de poulpe. Nous avons pris aussi un Sprite ,une bière, un punch(bof bof bof) et une bouteille d'eau, le tout pour plus de 90 Euros!!! A fuir coté resto !!!!!!

Bonjour, A ma connaissance aucun bus ne va jusqu'à ce jardin, mais si il y en a un, il vous laissera en bas de la colline et il faudra monter à pied (cela grimpe beaucoup et au moins 1 km).
