Its an open air restaurant right beside the lake inside the property where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. Its open air as compared to Easy which is AC. The food is the same at both Easy and Open. The service is a little slow, especially more tables are occupied !

The food quality and taste is just average. The service was quite bad. And when we told them that we would like to complain about their lack of service, they tried to pacify us with a complimentary starter. The view and ambience is great.

Food was average though the service was very good. Serving size was alright but the quality did not match the charges.

The service was mixed as one of the employees seemed to be rather unhappy to have us there while another was very serviceable. The first even asked us if we can move our table... More

Awsome local cuisine, there are continental option as well. If you are a food lover, no need to look beyond this place in Kumarakom. However, remember this is not a budget restaurant; make sure you have enough limit in your credit card!
