Depending on what you’re craving, you’re sure to satisfy your inner foodie by dining out in Seychelles. While Creole flavors are heavily favored in Seychellois cooking, there are restaurants on the islands that serve everything from pizza to sushi. Read on for Forbes Travel Guide’s editorse list of the five best places to eat when in Seychelles.
1. La Goulue. This Creole-style eatery on Praslin lacks beach frontage, but that’s about it. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the restaurant’s wide selection of curry includes everything from chicken to fruit bat. If your taste buds aren’t craving curry, the fresh fish dishes are also varied and well prepared.
2. Konoba. Whether you’re looking for a daytime snack or happy hour specials, Konoba has it all. Seafood reigns supreme here, but the menu also includes meat with a Mediterranean flair. Drinks are colorful, the décor modern and the views better than you could imagine.
3. Saffron. Located inside the Banyan Tree Hotel and Resort, Saffron specializes in Thai-inspired cuisine. Try wok-seared lobster or any of the other spicy dishes while dining in a space that truly transports you to Southeast Asia, if only temporarily.
4. Gelateria de Luca. Go for ice cream — trust us. It seems simple but no trip to the beach is complete without it. Flavors rotate, and the Praslin shop also offers a selection of pizza and pasta if you need lunch before devouring dessert.
5. Chez Marston. Located on La Digue Island, Chez Marston’s owner doesn’t hide behind his food; in fact, he’s known for his attentiveness to his diners. The menu is large and offers everything from giraffe crab to hamburgers.
