Great views across the river, a good menu and good food. This place has comfy mattresses on the floor making it an ideal place to chill out and relax. Food quality and service good. We went back twice during our 3 days in Hampi.

The view is to die for. We had coffee and momos which were satisfactory. I'd come here for the view. Specially in the afternoon, when it's less crowded and the view of the temple and river is in front of you in all their glory....More

Sorry. Not impressed. The seating space was very dirty. Too many flies. Pillow covers stained and looked unwashed for years. Food was no great shakes either... ! On top - they only take cash... even in 2018. Wonder why? Only reason its not rated lower...More

The place has a great vibe and beautiful view of Hampi and the river. It is also a nice atmosphere to chill. Food is a little bit more expensive than in nearby places. We were there for dinner and for breakfast, both were delicious. Especially...More
