Marie-Antoinette isn't just a restaurant, it's an experience, especially at dinner. It occupies a beautiful, wood-and-iron colonial Seychellois mansion. Bring an empty stomach – the menu (set menu of the day) includes battered parrotfish and aubergine fritters, grilled fish, tuna steak, chicken curry, fish stew, rice and salad, and hasn't changed since the 1970s.

Legend has it that Henry Morton Stanley stayed here in the 1870s on his return journey from Africa, where he found Dr Livingstone; the house was once known as Livingstone's Cottage.
