If paradise is around here you certainly have to go through "The Pily Pily Restaurant" first ! Food is delicious especially the fried mixed fish while the surrounding setting is simply mesmerising. Attentive but discreet and friendly service makes the Pily Pily Restaurant unmissable.

Regular buffet food, with great seafood. The view is absolutely unique! You are eating on top of a rock with panoramic sea view.

Fantastically located with a beautiful view, but overrated as far as food goes. It specializes in seafood (always fresh catch of the day).

The well-trained staff will serve up perfectly grilled fish and meat, alongside mixed fried meats and plenty of fresh vegetables and salads. Open every day from 1pm to 2.30pm, prior booking is not required, and your meals are included in the cost of your holiday. Just think - you can savour a fantastic lunch every day in the best restaurant in Nosy Be without having to shell out another penny! New for 2014: the private terrace overlooking the sea! This exclusive location for couples or groups of friends is where you can enjoy lobster and shellfish with table service. Open every day for lunch. Booking required. Additional charge applies. At dinnertime, the Pily Pily is transformed into a fully-fledged restaurant, where prior booking is essential.
