The beauty of Seychelles is that it has seen a number of different cultural influences from all over the world. And when it comes to the delightful process of feasting at the finest restaurants in Seychelles, there isn’t a lack of Creole, Chinese, Indian and other culinary influences. Fresh ingredients cooked in traditional and creative ways ensure that whatever arrives in your table is remarkably delicate both in flavors and presentation. The cherry on top? The beauty of the Indian Ocean and the stunning natural setting of Seychelles make for a gastronomic experience you won’t soon forget.
Cafe des Arts
Universally known as one of the best restaurants in Seychelles, Cafe des Arts predominantly serves a delectable selection of seafood and epicurean dishes. Freshness above all and each ingredient is cooking in a delicate and respectful way. Sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere through the day turns into a high-class luxury fine dining experience in the evening – and everything from the ambiance and food to the setting is impeccable. The restaurant is in close proximity to the sea, therefore, you can experience the perfectly orchestrated sound of the waves.
Describe as a hub of gastronomic creole experiences, Eden truly lives up to its name. Lush greenery and the soothing sound of the waves surround this fantastic restaurant that offers a mouthwatering selection of fresh seafood and meats from the BBQ. Eden doesn’t have an overwhelmingly long menu but what they do have is otherworldly. Offering both outdoor tables by the sea or ones under the roof, the atmosphere is elegant, romantic and chic. Beautiful lanterns and candles light up this romantic corner and you simply cannot wish for a more perfect ambiance.
Saffron is part of the Banyan Tree Seychelles hotel and the restaurant offers authentic Thai cuisine that uses traditional ingredients and cooking methods. A Southeast Asian atmosphere and service techniques are incorporated in the restaurant, which allows you to get the full experience. An exotic mosaic of flavors, textures and even colors all meet on the plate to create an unforgettable surprise for your taste buds. Chef Renu Homsombat and the team are experts in creating signature dishes like remarkable curries, stir-fries, and vegetarian dishes.
A place that simply oozes elegant Asian atmosphere and cuisine is Seyshima. The name is derived from the words ‘Sey’ for Seychelles and ‘Shima’ – the Japanese term for an island. Delicate Sushis and Teppanyaki dishes are what Seyshima is famous for, drawing crowds from different islands to experience what all the buzz is about. Guests can enjoy a la carte menu or have a meal at the Teppanyaki counter and enjoy a Teppan show by the chef. Resort chic or smart casual dress code is a must and booking beforehand is also a good idea.
Windsong Beach Restaurant
Within the Kempinski Resort Seychelles, it’s the Windsong Beach Restaurant that offers the best atmosphere for long drinks in the shade of palm trees, listening to the sound of the waves only a few steps further. The restaurant offers casual dining and a menu representing international cuisine featuring some of the best and the freshest local ingredients. Make sure to try the local smoked marlin fish salad or the Windsong mixed seafood platter. Hot stone-cooked Angus steaks are prepared to perfection here and only the highest quality beef is used.
