Thanks to the generosity of its waters and fruit trees, its abundance of fish, and the many different kinds of tropical fruits and vegetables that grow here, cuisine in the Seychelles is as varied as its population, with plenty of raw ingredients available all year round. The Seychellois people are excellent chefs and proudly use their talents to show off the best of their generous natural surroundings, much to the delight of the food lovers who come here to enjoy these wonderful dishes in a truly idyllic setting.
