I liked the "sand bar" spirit of this restaurant. It is the only one in the Union Estate park but it is a decent place to rest after a morning on the beach. As it often happens, staff could have been more smiling.

Sand between your toes, good value for money (especially on the glasses of wine) and tasty food. It is a part of paradise. But curb your expectations if you expect a restaurant. This is an on-beach shack serving café-style meals. But it is good at it.

You can find here simple but delicious creole and local meals as fish fillet, octopus creole, chicken coco, spicy meats. The prices very between 180 and 220 Rup. Water and cola are 35. They offer only nescafé. Everything is fresh and prepared at the moment. Try the chicken creole or the grilled fish if your stomach cannot stand curry. The... More

Grabbed some food when we were heading back from the beach. Place was almost full so probably high turnaround. Menu is simple. Either fish or chicken creole. Prices are low and service is good. Not the most highest standard. Your sitting on wooden benches with sand as floor. Lots of flies

The restaurant is no more than a beach hut at the end of the paved walking path to Anse Source d'Argent. It serves creole food (fish + rice with various condiments) and the service is pretty basic. Average food but stategic position if you are spending the day in Anse Source d'Argent. 2 mains + beverages: 450 SCR.

I don't like to give bad reviews but learned about this place through lonely planet and was surprised that it was recommended. The views NEARBY the restaurant are beautiful, but I wouldn't call this a 'sit with your feet place' I would skip this place and go directly to the beach with some snacks from the grocery store. I agree... More

The lady who took our order was very unhelpful and grumpy. The fish curry (fish pieces) was full of bones and was inedible. The chicken and chips - chicken came out in soggy batter. Wouldn't go again.

We stopped at Lanbousir after a day at Anse Source D'Argent. The open air beachside atmosphere is perfect for the islands. The service is informal but very friendly and the prices are not bad by Seychelles standards. We had the coco fish and the spicy fish and both were delicious. To our surprise (given that it's a beachside restaurant), we... More
