We ate here in our first day in Seychelles, the food took a very long time to come and it was just average, definitely not worth the price we paid for it. We had a kids pizza, a kids burger (my son did not eat it), tacos and another appetizer, some local beers and a juice, the bill was over EU 100, we decided to try other places instead.

We waited for half an hour to give our order and an hour more to get it, only after complaining 3 times to the manager! A very small portion of salad for too much money.
Find somewhere else outside. There are many.

Ok i rarely give bad review at any places, our main dish is tuna steak and we ordered two side dishes. The main came without any side dishes (red rice & fries), after 20 min we called the waiter he ran into kitchen, 5 min after came the rice but never the fries. If you eat tuna you will have to do it right away or it will get dried, after discussed with manager the fries came after another 20 min, no good reason has been given. Then we start to hear other tables complaint on different things e.g. One table said their food never arrived after 45 min, but another table which arrived later got their food. Another table was angry because they never get service attention since they look like local, etc. Such a restaurent in a 5* hotel should have adjust this after reviews after reviews here. The only positive thing here is food is actually pretty good and much cheaper compare to trader’s vics nearby. I hope this will help the management team improve this place where actually the atmosphere and food is actually fine..

We ordered starters and mains, but everything was presented at the same time after about a 20 minute wait. I ordered the grilled tuna rare, but it was welldone and had to be returned.

I would say the food was presented nicely but, it lacked some seasoning and flavor. When we paid at then end the full amount was taken and only when I questioned the service and explained the issue for a second time a partial refund was offered.

We would have rather paid full price and had a perfect meal. As a result I wouldn't really recommend this place as the other restaurants in the area have been really tasty.
