If you are not in a hurry and want to relax, here you can stay and look at the beautiful view. The food is good.

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!
