This restaurant was closed when we arrived and for the complete eastern weekend! Very disappointing level of service in a country living mostly from tourism Apparently not the only case in the Seychelles islands

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Seychelles. Nice place. The food was very tasty, offering a great variety. The staff was lovely, very attentive and kind. I would definitely recommend this place.

It feels a bit weird to come to the Seychelles to find some excellent Italian food. But that's exactly what you get at La Scala Restaurant. It feels like a family run restaurant and the food is simple, fresh and delightful. The home-made gnocchi were to die for, as were the starters of clams in white wine and smoked sailfish,... More

Lovely restaurant accessed by steep steps. We were with frequent diners so received very good service. The menu is varied but fish and seafood is available as well as e.g. lamb cutlets.

La Scala comes pretty highly recommended, but keep in mind that this is a big fish in a very little pond. It definitely plays up these airs. This explains, I suppose, why most patrons arrive dressed to the nines in what is essentially a fishing village. Its setting is dramatic, set into a hill, open air, all white stucco, with... More

Fresh tuna carpaccio with lime and pasta with fresh seafood. Could not go wrong with that. Everything was spot on, food and service.

Good food in relaxed atmosphere. We visited the restaurant twice, pasta/lasagne the first night and fish the second time and both meals were equally enjoyable.

Me and my husband spent our vacation in Seychelles during December 2016 and January 2017. We went to La Scala for dinner and wanted to try a fish. We both love Italian food and the owner helped us and explain the options. We had it grilled with vegetable, ginger, red pepper and potatoes. It was so fresh and delicious!!! The... More
