There are 3 restaurants on the grounds of the Banyan Tree hotel: Au Jardin d'Epices (International), Saffron (Thai) and Chez Lamar (Creole). Frankly the food is very good in all three of them and the International and Creole have a stunning location just metres above the sea level with waves crashing near you. However: 1) if you are on an... More

Went for a snack and quick lunch and it was very nice experience. Although a bit overpriced, the view is awesome and stuff really friendly.

We had dinner at Saffron Thai restaurant last night. Two starters, one main dish, one vegetable dish, dessert and one of their most reasonably-priced wines. I was expecting great things for the price. The fried calamari was average, the calamari was bland, the batter was heavy, the squid-ink sauce seemed like it had come from a packet, as it had...

We had dinner at the Thai restaurant one night. The entrance to the hotel is nice but needs to be updated. The service in the restaurant was so-so with several misses. The staff just wasn't friendly. It isn't a local population issue in that everywhere else we went to on the island, the people were great. The food was good-... More

We did not stay in the hotel, so cannot comment on the rooms. The beach is beautiful, setting of the hotel great. It's a beautiful place to enjoy a drink while enjoin the view. We tried the restaurant while there, and not that amazed. It was ok, but that's it. Service was good.
