We'd heard great things about the place. Paid ₹1600 for 2 people. The chicken main was good, but the lamb ragu was disappointing and bland. The worst part was the chocolate tart that we'd heard great things about. The base was literally inedible and I...couldn't break it with a spoon. When we sent it back, they broke it into pieces and gave it back to us....... The staff was generally polite, but had a negative experience overall.More

Chez Christophie is a great restaurent hidden in a corner of the main beach in gokarna. The Google map would take you to a point after which you need to ask people and figure it out. This place even does not have a signboard but...this place should not be missed at any cost. Great food and a very cozy ambience. We tried a preparation of duck and it was mind blowing. Also the chocolate mousse was great. Will definitely come here when I visit next.More

The cafe is situated on the Gokarna Main Beach. They serve European/French Cuisine. I really loved the vibes and food of the place. Prices are also very reasonable. This is definitely my favorite cafe in Gokarna out of all the cafes I visited. I had...a Mediterranean sandwich which was served with fresh salad from the garden. The bread was crusty and crunchy. It was loaded with good cheese and veggies. I also tried Pain Au Chocolat or you can say Chocolate Croissant. It was flaky and chocolate oozed out of it. It tasted amazing. It cost 260 bucks for the sandwich and 140 bucks for the Pain Au Chocolat. It was one of the best cafe experiences.More

Christopher is an amazing host- courteous, polite and down to earth. The location is very good. The cafe has an awesome ambiance… casual, arty and very comfortable. Its the kind of place where u can lounge for an entire day without being disturbed. The food...is excellent. The service staff is very helpful. Attended a jazz concert one evening which had been put together with great care and attention. A must go to place when visiting Gokarna.More

Excellent restaurant, Christophe is an extremely humble and talented guy. Place is very cozy, service was excellent and behaviour was very good. Only thing is it's little unreliable to reach there by Google maps. And they are closed during monsoon.

Although it was a bit difficult to find the restaurant at first, we were very happy not to give up and finally get to this French cuisine front beach restaurant. Due to Covid, they do not have everything on the menu and they were not...busy. But still, the ambiance, the quality/taste of the food and dessert were fantastic. I don’t know why on Trip Advisor’s site shows it is closed however.More

Gokarna was not on my Bangalore-Goa road trip. But because this place had such rave reviews and was run by a French couple, I decided to try and for good measure, spend a night at Gokarna to visit some places in North Karnataka. The visit...to Gokarna was disappointing and the hotel in Gokarna (Stonewood Resorts) was a bit of a disappointment. Ravenous, tired and underwhelmed, we drove to Chez Christophe - CC. Despite a large car and narrow roads, I managed to get to the Google Maps point in 15 minutes. However, despite several calls to the restaurant - we couldn't spot the place - because, it is not where Google says it is. From the main road, there is a 15 minute walk through "by lanes" - essentially through pathways to people's homes, angry residents and vicious dogs and open fields - before you ultimately get to Ananda Inn / Shakti Inn back entrance. And then, to the beach. And then you find CC. Thankfully, the residents of the homes were only impatient - and thankfully, held back their dogs. NOTE - this path is NOT safe for young, old and people who have trouble walking. I would also not recommend walking in the dark - I imagine snakes to be there was well. If you park on the road Google tells you, be prepared for no parking/tight parking. I'm told the beach route is better. 15 minutes travel time turned to an hour. The place itself is quite nice and done up well - like lot of restaurants on Goa's beach. And unlike Goa beach restaurants - not crowded and noisy. Despite ordering our food an hour earlier - food took a while. Orange juice, onion soup, ratatouille and lasagna. Juice was fresh and nice. Soup was quite robust and cheesy - perhaps a little extra for Indians who are too drunk or stoned. Ratatouille was nice - with flavors reminiscent of ratatouilles from lot of French/Italian restaurants across Delhi and Bangalore. Lasagna was cold - apparently not grilled/ heated enough - the cheese was tough and the lasagna itself, chewy. We ordered apple pie - which was more tarte tatin and that was nice. Creme brulee was.... ok - the heating of the caramel made the custard warm which was off-putting. Since their baking and breads came highly recommended, I also ordered a portion of croissant with home made jam. Croissant at a French restaurant is like parantha at a Punjabi house - an angel dies if it's wrong. The croissant had a smokey after taste like it was grilled in the wrong place. All of that was > 2k. Food is not cheap. I have done lot of things to eat at places I liked - from New York to Amritsar and Hoskote. The stay at Gokarna was contingent on this places' success. Obviously, they did not know that. unfortunately, food was super underwhelming. Their success can only be explained by rich young folk who have presumably had too much alcohol and herbal infusions and resultant stunted tastebuds and can't tell awesome from average. If you are at the beach - do try. If not anywhere near - don't go just for this place. Also - no masks, no credit cards.More
