I would rate him 2 or 3 in seniority of shacks at bogmalo. just another shack. slightly congested. on the beach front-yes, but views are limited. cost of food items-medium to high. response of waiters- lot of improvement required. ordered a Pinacolada for my wife but what came was a glass full of froth as compared to what you get...

The best part of this shack is it's alternate entry point from the parking side road. This makes it convineient for people with disabilities or wearing formal clothes. Price point is good and food taste is consistent. Although the beach is small it has some good spots for photography. Being close to airport, it will be my place to chill... More

Having watched the sun go down from the beach we chose John Seagull's restaurant for dinner as it had tables in the open air. We shared a half tandoori chicken as a starter. My hyderabadi mutton curry main was very tasty and satisfying. Eating this splendid food overlooking the beach with the lights of the fishing boats out at sea... More

Lot's of bars to choose from and we have no idea how this restaurant compares to the rest. However there was a nice ambiance and families were sitting around tables. Liked the menu as it had alternatives to asian food. Enjoyed a spag bolognese. I can imagine this place would be buzzing in the evenings.

This restaurant is great fun for all the family. Good food including steak and lovely staff. The karaoke in multiple languages is great fun.

like almost every shack on bogmalo beach this place serves really good food, cheaper alternative to joets which is unreasonably expensive, not so much kid friendly place, on busy evenings its even hard to get off your chair without disturbing anyone. Service drops drastically in the evenings which is quite understandable.

We were here for lunch after visiting the beach. The restaurant is located in the beach and has a good view of the beach. We ordered some parathas and a curry and found to be good. We ordered some snacks - Vegetable pakoras and found to be awful, and we complained the waiter immediately, they were kind enough to cancel... More

Inspite of being totally full, John accommodated us without prior reservations and served us personally. The Tandoori pomfret was excellent the rest of the dinner-veg stuff and the naans were cooked to perfection Thank you so much John.!!

Recently visited John Seagull restaurant at Bogmalo beach, we last visited 10 years ago! I thought it was excellent then, however our recent visit found the food, atmosphere and friendliness absolutely astounding. A lot of hard work has gone into maintaining and exceeding their already quality food and surroundings. The place is spotlessly clean, excellently positioned just off the beach,... More
