A basic looking restaurant at the bottom of a few very steep hills but well worth the journey. We had the fish and prawns which are served raw and then you cook them on hot stone slabs with butter. Absolutely yummy. Good service too.

Menu was quite inadequate. I ordered cheese pancakes. It was swimming in oil/fat disgusting. My friend ate fried rice, it was so ordinary. T-shirt of the waitress was so dirty that looking at her you can easily guess the menu which has very few items.

During December 2017 we went to Maria's for Lunch it was amazing, the total different style of "cooking" your own food on the table, the kids and we had so much fun, the fish meat and prawns were to die for not to mention the sauces garlic butter and creole that you get with it. Can really recommend this we... More

Had the crepes with bacon and cheese. While not expecting the healthiest dish, ours was drowning in grease. I hope the other dishes are better but won't be back.

The restaurant is located down a quiet, windy road close to both the Kempinski and Four Seasons hotels in the south of the main island of Mahe. There is... More

This was new ... we had our doubts ... very typical island style restaurant, service was extremely fast, not so friendly but then she was the only waitress and cook in the restaurant. This lady moves! We had seafood on the hot stone ... very healthy, she started the cooking for us and we finished it. It was great FUN!... More
