La Buse Restaurant is part of the Iles des Palmes Eco Resort. It is located on the road out to Anse La Blague and has an amazing setting overlooking Baie St Anne. It is named after the famous pirate Olivier Le Vasseur who was nicknamed ‘La Buse’ and is rumoured to have buried treasure worth $250 million in the area!

We dropped in for lunch on a Sunday having seen the sign for a restaurant from the road. It was about 2pm and the place was completely desert – not normally a good sign for a restaurant – but our fears turned out to be unfounded.

The food was good and reasonably priced compared to some places in the Seychelles – we paid about 250Rs per main dish (£13.80). We tucked into a sirloin steak with a nice light peppercorn sauce and a traditional creole fish dish served up with steamed vegetables and rice.

Whilst the food was good, the real reward here is the setting. This was our first full day on the island and La Buse restaurant is one of those places that really makes you realise you’re in paradise. An outdoor bar built in a traditional style stands over a turquoise green pool built into decking that leads out to the sea-front. The view from the restaurant is interrupted only by a few palm trees set at impossible angles over the ocean.

The whole place is set in a calm oasis of colourful trees and bushes with only green geckos and the shocking red Aldabra Fody for company. We sat right at the front and enjoyed a cool breeze coming in from the sea whilst we read, had a couple of drinks and enjoyed our perfectly cooked meals.

As an added bonus there is a pen of giant tortoises about a 5 minute walk away from the car park, our first time seeing them on the island!

If you are in this part of the island I would definitely recommend a stop off at La Buse restaurant to enjoy great food in an idyllic setting.

If you can’t picture it from the words above, hopefully my photos below will inspire you to pop in!

Useful Tools for Booking Your Sabbatical

Flights

I always use Skyscanner or Agoda alongside Google Flights to make sure I’ve got the best price. I use Google Flights to save a route and monitor price changes and a combination of Skyscanner and Agoda to get the cheapest tickets. 

If you are in the UK I would also highly recommend signing up for Jack’s Flight Club to get incredible flight deals sent to your email inbox every week.

Accommodation

When booking accommodation I always start with Booking.com as they generally have the best range and prices. I also regularly use Airbnb for longer stays and apartments in cities (use this link for £25 off your first stay). For a different experience try signing up to Housecarers for free house-sitting opportunities (get 10% off membership with this link).

Insurance

Travel insurance might seem like an unnecessary cost, but when a flight gets cancelled, injury occurs or you damage a piece of gear you’ll regret not paying in advance. I’ve used  World Nomads for two sabbaticals and (after badly damaging a hire car in Laos!) found the claim process to be simple and transparent.

Tours

Using local guides is one of my favourite travel tips. The easiest way to find a local guide is to use Get Your Guide who offer tours with local guides all over the world.

Gear

Check out my gear page for my favourite travel gear, here for a detailed 3-month packing list for men and women and here to find 38 great travel gifts.

Transfers

Getting from the airport to your destinations is an added stress after a tiring flight, so take the guesswork out and pre-book with JayRide.com. Their prices often beat the local taxis and I've found them to be reliable and easy to use.
