A blend of cultural influences combines with the bounty of the Indian Ocean and the island’s organic gifts to create the North Island “cookbook”. Balanced, delectable and visually arresting, each meal is sure to stimulate all your senses.
The innovative menu-less approach guides your food experience, as our team of chefs develop your own personal carte du jour based on your preferences and desires. Feel free to discuss your preferences or whims with our chefs, and they will use these as the starting point of your gastronomic voyage of discovery.
The variety of dining venues on North Island lend themselves perfectly to a range of different food experiences, from the sophisticated, romantic ambience of the Island Piazza – think date night at the classiest joint around – to an in-villa dining experience focused on comfort food, whether from your fully-stocked pantry or created for you while you relax in your lounge or study.
Your mouth-watering experience is perfectly rounded off by some of the world’s great wines and champagnes from our cellar, selected by our on-Island sommelier to represent all of the world’s most important wine-growing regions. These are wines you will either know from home, or by reputation.
A choice of exotic, beautiful settings complement your meals, from the large Piazza dining area set against a backdrop of natural granite boulders with superb views over the sea, to secluded beaches, the pool deck or the privacy of your villa.
Traditional Creole cuisine is cited by our chefs as an influence, with such specialities as “millionaire’s salad” made from the rare hearts of the coconut palm with a subtle and exquisite flavour that lives up to the name.
Half-day fishing excursions on North Island’s fully-equipped boats give you the chance to catch your own – what better way to be assured of the freshest sashimi anywhere? Yellowfin tuna, Dorado and bonito are regularly caught and are quite simply delicious.
North Island’s nursery produces delicious organic, seasonal fruit and vegetables – with zero food miles – which provide ever-changing inspiration and culinary hints to the chefs. The success of the nursery harks back to North Island’s history as a plantation, when it was known as the “fruit basket” of Seychelles.
