The Piazza Bar & Lounge restaurant Laid Back by Chef Akira 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 the Piazza Bar & Lounge 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 the Piazza Bar & Lounge, adding a unique dimension to your meal. The Piazza Bar & Lounge seamlessly extends on to 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.
