Great food, the Thai curry and rice was very good, my mother enjoyed the scones with clotted cream (its cash only as no telecomms provider will supply internet to a beach building)

Curry on the beach served between 5 and 7pm was superb. Vegetarian or meat choices £9.95 absolutely a bargain. Take your own booze or buy soft drinks. Lovely ice creams with clotted cream and a flake. Dogs allowed on leads. Perfect summer evening location.

From 5-7pm most nights this cafe serves very good Sri Lankan curry, sit on the beach with your bottle of wine and enjoy this wonderful cove.

You would think you were on one of the beaches in Cala D'or. The curries are great and the the service is fast, plenty of seating, and what a secluded beach.Best beach food you can find.

We are a small beach cafe, during the day we serve a selection of freshly made baguettes, ciabattas and homemade cakes and by evening (from June until September) we serve authentic homemade Sri lankan curry whilst you sit on the beach watching the sunset. Curry is served from 5pm -7.30 every evening that the weather is dry.
