Lotus Lounge is a winner for its setting. At the heart of the Dreamcatcher resort in the woods (you'll need to ask for directions!) the restaurant terrace overhangs the river at the north end of Palolem Beach. The food is not the best on the beach, but is reasonably priced and tasty. Quite a few western style dishes, with some interesting descriptions. I tried the kingfish fillet with 'brown' sauce - purely out of intrigue. This turned out to be a red wine sauce heavily spiked with garlic.

The views and setting however are lovely...

We have travelled extensively and been in the fine dining industry for many years. Once rumours of french pressed coffee got us here, we've come back for most meals during our stay. The attention to quality food is superb, and Martina works with fresh, local ingredients woven into European standards to create the most appealing dining experience we found at Palolem Beach. We had no qualms about eating salads or fresh fruit here.

The atmosphere is relaxed and tasteful, with a most pleasant riverside location nestled in the palms. We had no problems with insects, and temperatures were ideal with light breezes any time of day.

It can be a bit of a challenge finding this little gem the first time, and we were thankful our initial visit was in daylight. Access is via a narrow sandy path just north of the Banyon Tree, in the middle of the DreamCatcher Cottages some distance back of the beach.

Make the effort and you won't be disappointed. I recommended the Lotus Lounge to several others during my stay. They too became regulars.
