While at Mahe, went around sea beaches at Barbaron. Visited this restaurant opposite Avani Beach Resort, for Tea. Was charmed by the elderly frail server. Whatever the quality of food or drinks we ordered all was overshadowed by this motherly elderly lady who always smiled...More

If you stay at Avani Seychelles, you should visit Veranda cafe. They serve excellent pasta and a fantastic chocolate milkshake. We had lunch here twice, and it was unique and affordable. P.S It is also a place to get good T-shirts and souvenirs.

Small cafe with just veranda area sitting, very limited menu options. But very delicious food, we had juices with chicken burrito and famous banana cake. Food was super yummy but considerably small portions so expensive. Staff very co-operative. One added advantage is gift shop in...More
