Food & drink
There are three restaurants to choose from at Banyan Tree: Au Jardin d'Epices, Saffron and Chez Lamar.
Au Jardin d'Epices is set above the bay, and serves buffet breakfasts, a selection of light lunches and fine international cuisine for dinner. The dinner menu is inspired by local, fresh ingredients, and features a variety of Creole and Mediterranean cuisine. We highly recommend the lobster curry.
Chez Lamar is set in a colonial-style house that exudes old-world charm, overlooking the Seychellois wetlands, and serves a fusion of Creole cuisine and Arabic specialities.
Saffron has tables on the veranda of the colonial mansion. The resort’s signature restaurant, it serves fine Southeast Asian cuisine, with an emphasis on Thai food.
La Varangue is the place to grab a couple of drinks and snacks, a pizza, or some light Thai specialities with views out over the ocean. Alternatively the Rum Shack set on the beach offers cocktails made with local rum and a bento box selection.
When you just can't drag yourself away from the pool, the Pool Bar serves up freshly squeezed juices and other refreshing drinks, plus snacks.
It's also possible to enjoy beach picnics, or dine in the pavilion in your villa.
The evenings at the Banyan Tree are filled with a mixture of jazz evenings, Creole dance performances, and a cinema under the stars.
