If you are staying somewhere close to the main group of restaurants (like Beau Vallon on Mahe), or Cote D'or on Praslin, then eating out at the local restaurants shouldnt be any more expensive than in the UK. We found prices comparable, including drinks, and if you check around, some have buffets etc which are good value.

However if you are staying at any 4 or 5* hotel, expect to pay about 3-4 times the UK prices for food and drink !

We always take our own booze or pick it up at the airport, and if you pick somewhere within walking distance from a few restaurants, it really helps with budgeting as despite being such small islands, taxis are comparably expensive.

The local busses however are REALLY cheap, and a good way to get around.

If you are staying somewhere more remote, and dont want to pay hotel prices for food and drink, a hire car would pay for itself with the saving and give you the chance to explore at leisure.

We ate out on Praslin, La Digue and Mahe and found some good deals if you spend a bit of time looking round. The Pirates Arms on Mahe was great value, huge burgers and jugs of beer actually worked out cheaper than they would be in the UK. We also had the best indian food I ever tasted at LE RELAX on mahe, and a meal for 2 cost us less than an indian takeaway back home.

Basic provisions even at the supermarket on La Digue also worked out well priced so we picked up picnic items there and ate on the beach.

Remember they have to impot wine, so spirits and local beers will always work out cheaper, we usually take our own wine as a carton in the suitcase.

I think the seychelles has an unfair reputation for being expensive, really, its only expensive to eat and drink in the 4/5* hotels. The others can be very good value for the views you get !

Agree with the above. The hotels are a complete rip off with regards to food and drink prices. People we met at the airport were paying 4-5 times the price we were paying for a bottle of Seybrew. We had paid as little as 20 rupees for a bottle from a stall at a beach party (about £1) but usually paid between £1.50-£2.50 for a Seybrew. Hotels charging £10 a bottle, some probably more.

Local restaurants usually very good value for money. As mentioned the Pirates Arms is good value. We had 2 meals of red snapper with spicy rice and salad, 2 glasses of red wine and 2 pints of Seybrew for under £30.00.

Also if you want to get a take away there is a very good one in Anse Royale. We would buy meals of fish, rice and salad for about £2 each. There were meat dishes available as well. Excellent value and we could not even eat it all as there was too much. Good shop across the road from the takeaway as well.

Shops often run out of things and you have to wait until the next boat comes in but you just go with what they have in store. Makes it more interesting.

Yes you can pays a huge amout for food and drink in 4/ 5* hotels, eg 11 pounds for a bottle of sparkling water, but there are some great value restaurants, such as the Boat House in Beau Vallon, a nightly buffet for 275 rupees ( 17euro) or Marias Hot Rock Cafe in Baie lazare, where dinner for 2 can be as little as 30 euro. Your best bet is Self Catering, but check how close the shops are....
