Restaurants in Seychelles

When it comes to Seychelles restaurants, travelers won’t find fast-food chains. Most restaurants on the islands focus on regional cuisine, made with fresh seafood and Creole spice (think grilled octopus and fruit bat curry), and most feature spectacular open-air settings.

The Café des Arts on Praslin Island, for one, boasts a reputation as one of the finest restaurants in the Seychelles and pairs its regional cuisine with the colorful portraits that line its walls. The eatery also features a picturesque beachfront terrace. For a casual meal, choose the Anse Soleil Café on Mahe, which serves up its Creole-spiced menu on the sand.

Many of the best restaurants in the Seychelles can be found in at home in its first-class resorts and hotels. The Veuve Restaurant in the La Digue Island Lodge specializes in locally sourced dishes such as saffron-dusted tuna, while the Saffron Restaurant at the Banyan Tree Hotel on Mahe breaks from tradition with a menu of Thai cuisine.

Travelers can also find a myriad of buffet-style options at Seychelles restaurants for sunrise breakfast dining.

The best sunset views are at Veuve Restaurant, which serves local Creole dishes, including saffron-dusted tuna.
