Coco Rouge, Praslin Island: Is It Worth Visiting?

Coco Rouge Praslin is a great little takeaway food store in Baie St Anne.

One of the biggest challenges with travelling to Seychelles is keeping costs down, but by buying takeaway creole food you can eat on a budget. Coco Rouge has dishes starting at around 55Rs ($4.20 USD).

There is also a restaurant you can eat in but the or sit on the tables and chairs provided outside. Or even better grab a portion of food and head for a bench by the beach and watch the fisherman bring in their catch for the day.

Coco Rouge will knock you up everything from a ham and cheese sandwich to a shark steak but if want an authentic taste of Seychellian food, choose one of the specials of the day at the counter.

We found a mix of different creole dishes; fish curries, chicken and coconut, slow cooked pork. You can find them listed on one of the boards around the restaurant and are both authentically Seychellian and beautiful! 


As with most of the creole takeaways in Seychelles this will be served up in a polystyrene box for you to eat. For British these containers have long been associated with a terrible kebab at 3am on a Saturday morning, but don’t be put off by this! Forget the pre-programmed stereotypes if this was served up to you in a central London restaurant you’d happy pay £15 a dish!

If they have it I would personally recommend the Kari Koko Larai (Stingray Coconut Curry)!

They don’t have their own website but you can find more reviews on TripAdvisor.
