Great atmosphere but the prices were sky high. The bar man could have been friendlier even though the place was just about empty.

We thought that the portion sizes were very generous, the menu is small but covers everything. I think that this is a good value option with a lovely building full of character - very near the beach.

Friendly. Reasonable priced drinks. Fixed price for all you can eat hot buffet creole curry, rice, salad ext. Something for everyone. Plus freshly BBQ fish, chicken and sausage. Desert included in the price. If your feeling hungry it's a good option. Live music and generally good atmosphere. The bar show live footy.

The place to be from 17:00 to 19:00 for very good coctails. Prepatation takes a while, however. Happy hour price €7,- per coctail. Buffet is okay, prices for food reasonable

The restaurant offered a typical Seychellois creole buffet. I enjoyed everything I tried but what stood out the most was the mango salad, the breadfruit fries and the grilled fish. The waitress took good care of us as well which was another positive point to note. If you want to try good local food, this is the place to go.

The beach bar atmosphere can be deceiving. The food was excellent! It was also a good spot to watch the beach and the people with a cold Seybrew in hand.

40 € / person for a Creole Buffet. Dark place (unable to see what you eat and what you choose...) . Obviously part of yesterday food reheated. We both were completely sick during the next day and night . (40° body temperature).

We ate here twice, for lunch and we tried the Creole buffet dinner. We were impressed both times. Although some parts of the menu are 'international', the local food is the best especially the fish. The buffet dinner is comprised of salads, vegetables, rice and potato dishes and assortment of meat and fish. Again the fish was perfect, especially the... More

We opted for the buffet dinner which shuts rather early at 9:30 PM. The food had become cold by then and didn't seem fresh. However, we also tried the little cafe they run alongside which offers amazing smoothies and sandwiches. Do give that a try while at Beau Vallon.
