The main restaurant L’Abondance, that is opposite to the shimmering ocean and pool, is surrounded by ponds which radiate a pleasant cool. It is specialised on daily changing buffets.
Thanks to its unique location on a granite cliff the restaurant Le Mont Fleuri offers great views across the island Sainte Anne and ocean in direction of Mahé. The Le Mont Fleuri is known as the best restaurant in the Seychelles and welcomes its guests with a discreet luxurious atmosphere. The guests dine at the level of the treetops and one is able to choose from a number of excellent dishes.
On the beach opposite L’Abondance the restaurant L’Océane comprises of a row of thatched roof huts which are connected by stone paths. The hallmark of this restaurant is its simplicity and authenticity. With its name that translates to "Ocean" this restaurant has of course specialised in fresh fish and seafood, supplemented by typical local cuisine.
Thanks to its atmosphere which reminds of his namesake Le Robinson this restaurant is quite spectacular with its wide, unrestricted view of the ocean. Straight below the restaurant Le Mont Fleuri situated at the beach has the spectacular granite cliff on one side and the the Takamaka trees on the other side. The hidden location of Le Robinson reminds of a pirate hideout or a secret cave.
The Takamaka Beach Bar is at the Anse Tortue or translated "Tortoise Beach". It offers a breathtaking view towards the small islands like Moyenne Island, Round Island, Cerf Island and Long Island. But the most charming aspect is the natural atmosphere, where guests sit in the shade of a century old Takamaka trees with the feet in the sand.
