I came here solo before I checked into a hotel. I asked for a mixed juice, which was way too sweet. Make sure you tell them not to add sugar, which is common in India. I asked for local dishes, and the owner suggested malabari fish and calamari. Both were incredibly delicious and fresh. And you can't ask for a... More

We found this hotel staff really dry for us. May be they treat firangs differently. They didnt serve us food outside the cafe. There are some restaurants having foreigners as thier client treat locals differently and thier TripAdvisor rankings are good. Be careful

Totally local al fresco restaurant with the freshest food. The owner is around making sure everyone is attended to. The food was so good we went back 2 nights in a row as it was walking distance from our hotel. Super fresh and very authentic regional cuisine. Nothing fancy, its all about the fresh food.

We found this place via TripAdvisor and just kept going back. We must have had 4 meals here. Lovely sea view while you eat and the food was fantastic and at a good price.

A good place to look at the busy beach boulevard with a cold drink and tasty snacks. Service is a bit slow. Other than that all right, but not special. We did not eat so I can not tell about the food, snack were tasty though.

This little beach side restaurant has a beautiful setting but also an amazing chef. The food was delicious and we ate there three time. It was markedly better than the other very good resturants near by, flavours were fresh and the fish particularly was very well cooked. My favourite dish was the malabari mussel, absolutely delicious and the breads beautiful.... More
