Oyster Box hosts some fantastic places to tuck into. The Grill is a special one and offers some of the best (and freshest) seafood around. It’s extremely popular so booking in advance is a necessity. For something a little more causal opt for the Ocean Terrace. Showcasing a stunning vista across the Indian Ocean, and serving up a buffet breakfast and in the evening sit down as the sunsets while authentic Tandoori and pizza ovens prepare some of your favourite dishes with exceptional taste and aroma. The bars offer a great range of cocktails, international and local wines and the perfect spirits for a pre dinner drink or an evening nightcap.
