Eating Out & Creole Cuisine

Good local (Creole) food and international style food can be obtained on all the main three islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue.
Most restaurants are open for lunch and evening dinner although it is always wise to pre-book as they do tend to become rather busy.
Creole food is a wonderful blend of African, Arabian and Indian recipes that have simmered and evolved over the years with local specialities such as millionaires salad, home produced cinnamon, papaya, pineapples, breadfruit and mangoes to name a few.

Freshly caught fish is always on the menu so don't miss the opportunity to taste really succulent flavours and textures. Each restaurant will have its own speciality, so do try the local dishes.
