Delicious juices and freshly prepared prawns in an idyllic setting. Came for a late light lunch and it delivered just what we wanted.

Set in the perfection location of Marari Beach, we were looking forward to our lunch. However, there were only three options available on the menu and by the time we ordered, this was down to two; we had fried Tuna and fried mackerel. We waited...around an hour for our food and when it came it was distinctly average. The flavours were OK but the inclusion of rice and other little additional extras included in the price were welcome. This restaurant has potential to be lovely but I would avoid if searching for authentic Indian cuisine.More

We were the first people there on the evening and the guy opened up for us. The menu was simple and limited but the food was good, wholesome and very reasonable. The people were helpful but sort of shy. Later another couple came and joined...us and it made for a nice evening. If you're a backpacker or just want a complete change then give it a go.More

Dinner with candles on the beach. Good start! But waiting for 1 hour for some grilled dishes which arrive cold on the table. Unbelievable. So deceptive.

We came here twice during our stay. Lovely family run restaurant, serving fresh seafood. Very tasty! Would highly recommend.

Carol Days (named after the period when we sing carols at Xmas rather than a person) is a lovely relaxed cafe on a beautiful unspoilt part of Mararikulum Beach. King prawns, fish and calamari all freshly supplied by local fishermen and cooked in a tiny...kitchen.More

Lovely small, unpretentious beach restaurant - good food, if not a lot of it; beers available if you're discreet! A great place to sit, relax and meet and help some lovely local people. Massages available too.

Ordered grilled fish, got two small pieces of the fish. Disappointed as the restaurant is on the beach and there are a lot of fishermen as well as fish. If they offer two small pieces at the price that in other restaurants gets you the...whole fish then they should state so in the menu. Tourist trap!More

Thank you for your valuable comment. We are really sorry to dissapointed you. You ordered KING FISH, the whole fish cost 3,000/- rupees and above. For 400/- rupees we can only provide 2 large pieces with fried rice, veg curries, and dessert included. King fish...More

Jerome and Judith were very welcoming and made us an excellent lunch with fish he had been out and caught that morning. We had a nice long chat about their life and ours and paid a very reasonable bill of just under £5:00 each, amazing...value for a delightful lunch in a stunning setting. Highly recommended. Thank you both. Nick and Amanda.More

We were there four of us and went back. Great people, extremely friendly, they will prepare whatever you'd like. They go out of their ways to make you feel comfortable. Just go and be nice to them.
