Most beautiful view from across the river over the ghats. Floor sitting dining experience which we love. The hummus is fresh and good, and the omelettes are beautiful!

After crossing the river in what is loosely termed a ferry, it was a short walk to the restaurant. Look for the signs and the windy, dirt road which leads you there. The place is relaxed with mattresses to lounge on while looking out across...More

The most terrible experience of my life ! We reached the restaurant at 7.30 PM. Beginning from taking the menu order , the one and only waiter there didn't seem keen on serving us. It took him more than an hour to serve our food....More

Good range of international food options with an awesome temple view. Thali was average. Other international food options were good. Service good and great music. Table dining and floor dining available.

Not value for money. Basically indifferent staff, I got the feeling they were doing us service feeding us. Compared to the Mango Tree, this was lower quality food and staff who seemed bored. Sorry, not recommended.

Nice spot on the river bank overlooking Hampi - some of the best views. Plenty of seating. A bit more expensive than other spots but nice for a meal. Go during the day to get the best views.

Went as had been told good things, however a juice was 140rp... and curry 220+. Also mosquito heaven, hideously beating off mosquitos so much we couldn't concentrate on much else. Instead went to Goan corner for a Thai for 120rp and was amazing!

Hi sreerambabu1234, I've tried several times as well to no avail. The best would be to just go there. If you need directions, you can ask anyone after you cross the river near the Virupaksha (towards Anegundi). If you need... More
