Food-3.5/5 Ambience- 3.5/5 Hygiene-3/5 Price- 4/5 Service-4/5 Tthis is little above average restaurant. The ambience seemed bit shady. Little too dark. And seemed like den of shady people. Never mind. The food was good enough. And they served fast. Nothing very extravagant but good food with cheap liquor. And sea in front of you. It can definitely be one of... More

Wasn't the busiest of nights and the staff were most attentive. We had soups then chicken with bubble and squeak and fish pie. All the food was very good and the bill with drinks 13th rupees.

Not our first visit but once again we weren't disappointed. Not only were our meals excellent but the service we received was "spot on". There was a big issue in other establishments due to the fact the government had overnight made 500/1000 rupee notes almost unusable,but the management/staff couldn't have been more helpful. Also the warm chocolate brownie, ice cream... More

The ambience of the place is awesome.Beach side tables and the music makes you feel out of the world but the food is average and expensive.

Nice place inside, poor tables outside, Great view of the beach, receptive waiters but average food. We didnt have to wait to get a table unlike Brittos which was nearby. Ordered Spicy Goan Egg Curry and Rice which was sweet. Also ordered Pasta Arabiatta which was sweet as well.

After seeing the good reviews on trip advisor for this restaurant we were disappointed with our experience. The restaurant is set back from the road so it's hard to find. Once we did find it we were unsure if it was the right one as the place was dead compared to the other restaurants nearby. The food was average as... More

There is plenty of choice the staff are very attentive and the food is good. The ambience needs a little attention it was very quiet but if you like that it could be good... More
