We enjoyed this restaurant on our second night in the Seychelles, and they set the bar high for our future dinners on the island. We had the delectable red snapper, and also an order of fish and chips. The meals came with breadfruit chips at the beginning, and then a basket of garlic toast. Every one of us enjoyed our... More

Dear DessertDweller32, A very big hallo to you and a bigger thank you for your very favourable remarks about Le Reduit. We thank you very much. Honestly, by your comment, you have equally set the bar "too high'' for us as we fear it will be too much over the top to keep up this expectations. But, indeed our first... More

Nicely ran home restaurant. It's a bit old fashioned and atmosphere is slightly depressing. But food was good. For the first time on the island service was not included which was surprising. But only one girl managing the whole room. Good pricing.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and what an excellent recommendation it was. It is situated off the beaten track in what the locals loosely term, 'the jungle'. It was certainly out of the way. It's interior is very simple and very rustic. It was recommended as a seafood restaurant and you will not be disappointed. However,... More
