I had a most enjoyable afternoon at Siesta and it was all thanks to one person. Muthu, the all-in-one waiter-plus-chef. He simply stole my heart. His smile, his enthusiastic attitude and humble demeanor coupled with the yum, delicious food which he kept dishing out put me and my company to total rest..to total siesta. So much so that we visited... More

The overall quality of food we had was ok...good. The prawns in corriander and garlicbutter sauce were well done. But the fish was not upto the mark, it hadn't been cleaned properly at all. The soup was ok. We weren't tempted to try anything more. But it was ok for the prices they charge. Resaonably good.

Fantastic restaurant, with unusual options, which is very appreciated after the monotony of the food in tourist places. Loved the breezy rooftop and the gentle service, Murugan was always happy to cater to our special requests -as we traveled with two small children. Definitively recommended!!! Try the paella, and the wonderful sangria.
