Plaine St. André Bar and Restaurant: "Bad surprise afterwards - be careful!!" Seychelles Restaurant Tip by norikro

Seychelles Restaurants: 55 reviews and 41 photos

Local cuisine and food "fusion style", all served in a renovated colonial villa. From the outside everything looks really beautiful and inviting. But the service is the opposite: we went there for a cocktail (they offer a wide range of cocktails because of their own rum destillery) and made a reservation for the upcoming Friday for dinner. When we arrived on Friday we had to learn that the reservation disappeared and that we could get a table in a corner... ok...But the worst surprise we experienced when we got home: We paid our two cocktails with VISA - there the price was 370 Seychelles Rupies (about 20 Euro), but they made a mistake and charged us the price in Euro!!! Imagine 370 Euro (about 500 US Dollar) for two cocktails! And they don't answer any mails, even some telephone calls in fluent French went by unnoticed. Don't get me wrong: you can make mistakes, but this current behaviour is no way of style!! Maybe a lot of rich people are coming to the Seychelles - but we saved up for this very special travel and paying that much money more is a problem for us. Actually it really spoils our whole holiday on these beautiful islands..
