Laid Back offers gracious candlelit dining with the gentle sounds of the ocean setting the scene for a romantic evening. This is the ideal venue for a sophisticated date night and showcases the “smooth” aspect of the Island. Situated where the ocean meets the Island, the food offering in Laid Back draws on the freshest ingredients from both land and sea to give you a sumptuous dining experience.
The chefs give free rein to their imaginations as they are inspired by the seasons and flavours of Seychelles and the world beyond. A favourite dish is squid ink linguini with lobster, freshly caught red snapper, langoustines, and local octopus – perfect with a cold glass of fruity Chardonnay.
It’s not unknown for turtles to emerge from the ocean and nest on East Beach during lunch or dinner at Laid Back, adding a unique dimension to your meal. Laid Back seamlessly extends onto the beach to give you a range of al fresco dining options, in the shade of a towering takamaka tree by day or underneath a milky canopy of equatorial stars by night.
