For special occasions
There are many great aspects to this restaurant: ambiance, setting, great service and fantastic cocktails. Also the food is pretty good not excellent but good. I really enjoyed the flash fish, for example, but it lacked substantial flavour. It is also expensive even for Seychelles so for me this is a great place to visit for the experience rather than the food.

Worth the money
The buffet is excellent and a great way to try most of the typical island dishes. The grilled meats were fantastic and of course the staff were friendly!

Best value in Praslin
The food here is great, with a variety of dishes (meatballs, pork, chicken, spicy beef, fish) mostly served with dail and rice. It was very popular and seems to be open for only an hour or two each evening so get there early. Portions where generous and two meals and a coke only 175.

If you want sushi this is the place to go!
Such a beautiful little beach bar in such an idyllic setting. The sushi was incredible and the presentation of it is amazing. Great for some lunch after relaxing by the pool or beach. We went to the BBQ by the beach in the evening time here as well and I cannot recommend it more! The staff were so attentive and the range of food made available for the BBQ was incredible - ranging from Lobster to Steak and Ceasar Salads.
5. Coco Rouge Take Away and Cafe

Pertains Four & Half Rating ?
Stayed in June for 3 weeks which was a mistake for us , not due to the hotel but we should have broken up our holiday.On arrival we were greeted warmly by reception staff and given a freindly drink and taken to our room.Initial thoughts of the room were it was large with an attatched bathroom eaquilly large with an outside seating area , comprising sun bed , table and two comfatable wicker chairs. Linen was changed evey two days with a turndown service that eventually died a death at the end of the first week.Generally room cleaning was good however not consistent. The quality of the room was of a good three star establishment .In ou room we had a hole in the wall behind the tv. and a stain on the ceiling by the door. Im not sure if the colour of the room was off white or it had just faded however with the dark furniture it became oppressing after a period of time. The room could be divided with the room next door to accommodate a family however the sounproofing was not good , you could hear people in the toilet and talking. If you like your privicy avoid room 21 or the room next door.Breakfasts were superb whist dinners were either buffet or a set 4 course menue with a choice of starter and main course. Buffet dinners were the usual fare with good salads but warm food when for healths reasons it should be hot. All restuarent staff were good with special mention to Preddep , Metja , Stephane and Eric for that extra mile of service.Prices in the hotel are exspensive.Take plenty of insect repellent as we were bitten constantly.The hotel provides sun beds on the beach which are extremely uncomfatble as no mattereses are provided unlike other hotels.The hotel also rents loungers to non guests which can be annoying as we are paying for them and very often others do not.Security is responsible for charging these people but very often dont .By the way non guests are recognised by the towels they use.Room ACwas the best I have ever had but tops of pictures in our room had`nt been cleaned for sometime, so i did it!

Beach side - magical views
A few steps up from the best beach front on Praslin (Cote d'Or) this restaurant provides a good eating and drinking hole while keeping a watchful eye on your beach towels. Good food and reasonably priced for Seychelles

now, only for hotel guests
My partner and I ate at Chateau de Feuilles restaurant because we are staying at the hotel, and overall, it is the best restaurant by a long shot on Praslin island.Unfortunately, this restaurant is not open to people not staying at the hotel, so there's definitely some exclusivity around the restaurant. It's a very small and intimate setting for dinner.During our trip we were able to eat at a few of the resorts and also independent restaurants on Praslin, and while some of the international chains had very good food, the technique and skill with the food at Chateau de Feuilles was very good and resulted in food that was very delicious.The menu changes daily and one of the days we were there was a "creole feast." It was a lot of food served family-style for the table to experience a local island cuisine. It was very good.Service was also personable because it was the same people who were with you the whole day at the hotel, they knew what you preferred.
