Stayed at this resort. You can see my review of it itself on TripAdvisor. This restaurant serves as the breakfast venue for hotel guests and since it is on the beach front it also offers meals to passing by beach goers. The place is a little dated in terms of decor and some of the beach furniture could be fixed and cleaned better. The main area under a gazebo is dark and also could use a makeover. But generally the place is clean. The staff are friendly and helpful but the service is incredibly slow. We had breakfast here twice and the full breakfast is a triumph! We also opted to have lunch here one afternoon.We went for the local special (grilled taffi fish) and this too was incredibly good. For starters we had the samosas. We waited the better part of an hour for our starters and they also came AFTER our main meal. Both were freshly prepared and good but the kitchen is slow. We were there and the ONLY two guest ordering meals. We had cocktails one early evening. This is not a place used to making them so the quality wasn't very good.

Go here for a hearty breakfast and for the grilled taffi. But be prepared to wait.

The beach bar and restaurant are a nice simple set up with some tables right on the beach. The menu was cheap and the drinks cold. The service was friendly and the food hit the spot. However the toilets at the beach bar were awful so we didn't come back here again. Please fix up the toilets if you want your guests to linger!

Nice place to spend the day at the beach. Good for family hang outs too. The fresh fruit drinks were great but their dishes with coconut, lacked any form of coconut at all. We ordered the coconut rice which initially came out like plain rice. We had to request again for a different coconut rice which when it finally came out had the coconutty taste.

Pretty decent place.

Nice place for a family with small children. Nice fine beach not too many beach boys.
Perfect for a beach day and lunch.
