It’s about 25 minutes south of Victoria on the eastern coast road in the Takamaka rum estate. I don’t recall the cost of the taxi fare.

The menu changes almost daily but Verheyden wouldn’t dare change favourites such as Creole bouillabaisse, pork rum and raisin, or seafood au coco (where the seafood is served in a coconut). Lunch is a more casual affair, with perfectly conceived tapas. The terrace at the back opens onto a tropical garden, there’s live music from 8pm on Wednesday and Saturday and we’d eat here every day if we could.

At Takamaka Bay, La Grande Maison is the home kitchen of Christelle Verheyden, one of the country’s most talented chefs. The atmosphere, in a wonderfully restored and airy colonial home, is a fine backdrop for Verheyden’s exquisite tastes built around the best local (and often organic) ingredients and a fine-dining sensibility. Verheyden is also a sommelier – the wines are as excellent as the cooking.

La Grande Maison restaurant is located Au Cap, at the Takamaka rum distillery on the East Coast road, 10 minutes after the airport heading south. Everything we do at La Grande Maison restaurant – using subtle textures and flavours, sourcing the freshest products – has the same goal: to enhance and elevate local ingredients. Seychelles is a constant source of creativity from which we draw. We combine this creative energy with our own fine dining cooking techniques and a sense of Creole inspiration. Relax and discover a new approach of the Creole taste in the fantastic atmosphere of this Creole Gran Kaz.
The service was excellent and the setting is lovely, in a garden behind the rum distillery. I would say the food needs a little work, as we probably had nicer meals at other, cheaper, local restaurants, but the setting itself makes it worth the trip.
Everything was amazing. The pork belly was insanely good. Smoked with sugar cane. Best restaurant in Seychelles by far ! You can’t visit Seychelles without coming here.
Charming restaurant with good service. Food was above the standard that you expect in Seychelles and not all that much more expensive. Our food was really nice. The menu is inventive and interesting. I can definitely recommend this restaurant!
Is this restaurant a hidden gem or off-the-beaten path?Yes No Unsure
What ever you read about this unique restaurant – it is even better. Totally off the charts!! The whole experience was fantastic – the cocktails, the starters, the main course – and the desserts. We were two couples – the guys got the pork belly…More
La grande Maison deserves the name. Everything was grande! The people, the food the drinks, the live band. Thank you for a „grande“ evening. Perfect. Sofia and Diane made a great service. Special thanks. Anca and Marius
We came for dinner her based on the recommendation of our dive master. We were not disappointed. Food was great, service was perfect, and the setting was beautiful.
The food and the atmosphere was good. However the service was very bad for such a restaurant. Unmotivated and lazy staff was really annoying and ruined a bit the nice atmosphere. Nevertheless it was the only restaurant outside a resort/hotel which semms to be good.
A traditional-style Creole ‘Gran Kaz’ whose history dates back to 1792, La Grande Maison Restaurant is the brainchild of Christelle Verheyden, Chef and owner of the restaurant. Along with her all-Seychellois team, she continues to create and astound with her delectable dishes, inspired by local ingredients and Creole flavours. Once home to the Jorre de St. Jorre family, La Grande Maison is set in beautiful grounds with a rich history of coconut plantations, among other subsistence crop and farm animals. Evidence of settlement is still around today, with the ruins of outbuildings, a copra mill and water basin, providing a glimpse of island life back in the day. Reputed as one of the best fine-dining restaurants in the country, La Grande Maison is definitely not to be missed, especially for the discerning food lover. Our menu is reviewed and refreshed on a regular basis, ensuring that you have an unforgettable culinary experience every time! We cater for various occasions; from intimate couple dinners to large groups and private functions. Being a food designer, Christelle is also able to tailor-make a menu to meet your requirements. All you need is a palate for divine flavours! Pay us a visit.. allow us to heighten your culinary experience!
Absolutely loved our dinner at this restaurant! Uniquely situated in the gardens of the country’s only rum distillery, the restaurant delivers locally sourced, high quality food. The ambiance is excellent: reminiscent of the creole style of the southern US. The service is excellent, with the…More

What a rude host! We arrived to the restaurant asking for a table. We were advised that they are fully booked for tonight. This is understandable. But what is not acceptable is the attitude of the host.
She was rude with very aggressive arrogant body language. Although the food might be good, the attitude is a drawback. A smile is worth 100 meals!!
