White Elephant - : Service provided by Mr Moin was too good, food which was served to us is really very awesome and specially sea food and Italian pizza was juicy, Mr Moin helped and guided us to main spots where family enjoyed a lot,...Moin is very friendly and helping nature, he doesn't treat as an costumer,, he treated just like family member to us. Good food, good hospitality, nice and generous people. Thanks to Mr Moin (White Elephant, Stay and food) Unable to upload the pis as all the pics are saved in my camera. But I promise it's an excellent place to visit with beautiful sun rise in his location as it's an hill top located staycationMore

I took the stay for 3 days and 2 nights. As per my request they have arranged a cake for me and the they provide good breakfast and dinner with room service. When we were staying they have arranged 2 wheelers with the price negotiation...and while vacating they have arranged the auto service too. The restaurant has a good ambiance. The room was good as I took bathtub room with a good view.More

Good located on the highest point of Gokarna, best place for amazing sunrises and sunsets! I loved the green nature around and the good meals the restaurant serves. All people working there are very friendly and helpful. Gives the place an even more comfortable vibe....Also good access to different beaches around. I would definitively book with White Elephant Restaurant & Cottages again.More

We stayed for 3 days and the room was good. All the services were nice. The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves amazing food which gives home made feel. The restaurant staffs were all helpful, amazing and friendly. It is a safe...place to stay with cute and friendly dogs and cat (for those who loves dogs n cats). The owner of this property helped us in our difficult situation as well. Thank you!More

Service took a lot of time, which is understandable in a beach side shack. But, food was below average. Went by the TA reviews but was disappointed Probably management has changed hands

It's is nice and cosy place. Food was excellent. Had Pasta and Momos both were pretty good. One must try pizza in oo they have good ones, we thought of coming back for Pizza but couldn't manage. Overall a very good experience.

The cafe is situated on the Kudle Beach Hilltop Road. It provides a nice view of Kudle Beach. But since we visited the place at night, we couldn't see much. Dishes that we tried - 1. Quattro Formaggi Pizza - Loved the crunchiness of base...and the cheesiness of the pizza. Cost for this was 350 bucks. 2. Mushroom Chilli - This tasted nice but I felt it was slightly saltier. Cost for this dish was 230 bucks. Overall, it was a good experience.More

The food is great here. The staff is super awesome. This is pet friendly. great parking space. The view is good from the restaurant. Please carry cash, this will be helpful coz the online payment depends on the network so better be sure.
