We were recommended mollys by some other holiday makers and also had read good reviews about it before we left so we were very disappointed not to have had a good meal there ourselves. Maybe we just happened to have been on an off night...More

Relaxed atmosphere. Good food & service. If you yearn for a taste of England this is the best place even though they also have a full local menu.

When it comes to ambiance, one of the best restaurants my wife and I visited in Kerala, very romantic. Also, very good food – we took fish curry and dahl, both delicious. Very good service. Prices a bit higher but good value for money.

We stayed at Molly's whilst in India and ate there on several occasions. The food is simple but tasty. If you fancy a change from curry dishes they make a fine omelette. The orange and pineapple juice is also good and very refreshing.

We choose Molly's for our first meal in Kerala because of the reviews. We both decided to have the Keralan curry, one fish and one chicken. Both were clearly freshly prepared and cooked and very good too, if a little on the hot side, but...More

Lovely place, small and friendly, clean with a great pool, only let down was the outside people coming in to use pool and hogging the sun beds before guest even had breakfast.
