This place is idyllic and you live on the beach 24/7 and children can run about safely all day and night. It is becoming more popular since 2007 having visited in February this year 2016. You live in shacks with... More

Great restaurant in the middle of Patnem. Actually, what and how to cook here, is one of the advantages of this beach. Exceptional cooking ability of the chef-cook – each time he cooks differently. However, the menu here is very extensive, and gives a great choice. but in comparison with other restaurants the prices here aretoo high. It seems that... More

We went for ten days for dinner to this restaurant and every night we had a different type of fish (pomphret, red snapper), prawns or calamari. Every night you could choose from a different set of fishes, as they were receiving fresh ones with a nice rotation. We felt for the bigger fleshy fishes that were fantasticly cooked (not the...

For is it was Namaste where friendly staff serve tasty well prepared simple food, ice cold beer and drinks either in the shady restaurant or right on the beach at one of the 8 sun beds. Clean clean toilets and a fresh water indoor shower behind the... More

I have stayed in Namaste twice and these guys felt like a family from the start. Nothing is too much for them, always smiling and happy and ready to help or just up for a chat! Huts are pretty basic, but good value. But the food is the winner. From the breakfast and excellent papaya shake to dinner and seafood.... More
