Food is very tasty, stuff is friendly. You can order freshly caught seafood accordingly to market prices. Price is a bit high for India, so 4 stars instead of 5.

Food quality is very nice but overpriced. View of the sea and atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. Cards are not accepted here. They need to improve the quality of service. But food is awesome here.

not a very costly place considering the location and the nearby place charges, we were here for lunch and was a feast for prawn lovers as this place got us the tastiest ocean caught jumbo prawn and steamed basmati rice. With the view of beach and tasty food - 1 monday afternoon well spent.

Popular place for meals, snacks and drinks. Getting a cold beer at lunchtime was a struggle, but did get one eventually. Would prefer to go lunchtime as evenings are busy and lots of flashing fairy lights are not very relaxing

The place is thronged by foreigners so lot of attention is given to service them properly. Sea food is decent, Nothing great. Veg food... More

Other foods coming from the kitchen looked and smelled lovely. The feel of the place at night is very nice. Certain items we ordered which... More
