Fresh produce at Ephelia

At our two Seychelles resorts, Constance Lemuria and Constance Ephelia, you’ll discover the fusion inherent in Creole cooking where traditions of many nations blend to create the distinctive dishes on offer. Influences include African, European, Chinese and Indian cuisines.

Fruits such as mango, passion fruit, banana and pineapple are combined with local fish to make light refreshing dishes while spices such as lemongrass (‘citronel’), chilli (‘pima’), and onions (la ke onyon) give the food its heat.

Every Saturday guests can enjoy a special fruit and spice discovery evening, where you can learn more about the island’s delicacies.
