At Lémuria our chefs use herbs from the kitchen garden or grown wild around the hotel grounds to create delicious fine-dining dishes for our restaurants.

Fine Dining at the Seahorse, Constance Lémuria

Christian Pedersen, executive sous chef at Lémuria, is proud of the fresh thyme, parsley, coriander, basil and mint grown in the hotel’s pretty herb garden but he is just as excited by the lemon grass, spinach and cinnamon leaves which grow wild around the hotel grounds. Christian uses the fresh herbs and spices to give his dishes an authentic Seychellois Creole flavour.
