New Creole restaurant opens at Victoria Market

A new restaurant serving Creole cuisine opened its doors recently at the Sir Selwyn-Selwyn Clark Market in the heart of Victoria.
The new restaurant, called ‘Le Restaurant du Marché’, is being run by Georgette Pool, who already operates a successful eatery at the ESPACE Building also in Victoria, together with her partner Peter Smith.
To get to the restaurant one goes through an access amid a host of souvenir shops filled with an array of handicraft items.
The restaurant was officially opened by the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St Ange, accompanied by Anne Lafortune (principal secretary for tourism), Benjamine Rose (principal secretary for culture), Sherin Naiken, the chief executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board and her deputy Nathalie Didon.
The Sokwe Band was also present with a selection of Creole music.
Addressing the gathering, Minister St Ange started by congratulating Georgette Pool and Peter Smith for moving in to fill a void in the heart of Victoria.
“This market is visited daily by many visitors to our islands and this eatery promoting our Creole cuisine is a needed facility. The arts and craft dealers in the market need the continuous flow of tourists and this small restaurant will only help get our visitors to spend more time in Victoria and increase the chances of them buying more items that have a ‘Made in Seychelles’ label,” said Minister St Ange.
The minister went on to speak about the importance of handicraft dealers for our tourism industry and encouraged them to continue with their chosen line of business.
“You are part of those promoting our island's culture and you are an important part of our tourism industry,” Minister St Ange said to the arts and craft dealers present.
He added that Georgette Pool already has a following from her name as a good caterer today operating at ESPACE Building.
“Her Creole cuisine is popular and the specialities she offers are delicacies we all look for. This is why I can recommend her as an operator providing good and quality Creole dishes,” said Minister St Ange.
The accompanying photos were taken during the opening ceremony.
