My partner and I went to Cafe des Arts for dinner while we were on the island, and overall, though I heard good things, it was not a very good restaurant. I read about this place online so we wanted to check it out as opposed to always eating at a resort. We were able to get reservations for Friday... More

It's a very nice place on a beach. The restaurant is serving nice food - well cooked, nicely served. Staff was relaxed (as everybody here :-), nice and smiling.

Right on top of the beach, with palm trees dancing in the wind, which is constant in that place and could be very strong! The food is good, the service also! We went for dinner also, what a difference! Day and night! It wants to be sophisticated with the prices to go with it. The personnel, different from the lunch;... More

Amazing location, this could be a gold-mine if the service improved and staff were more friendly instead of being so disorganised they could not look up to say hello at the bar. Food very poor, menu pretentious and portions small. OK for a glass of wine to watch the sunset. Lunches drag-on for hours due to the poor kitchen service.... More

The lobster we ordered was really delicious as was the prawns in a coconut curry base! The manageress was most attentive and had a birthday song lined up for my hubby!! And a special cake was made for breakfast. Thank you to my daughter in law Tasnim and Cafe des Arts for making this an especial birthday for my husband!!
