Leave your flipflops at the entrance and grab a seat in the roof top terrace for a cold beer. The food is average and average price but decent enough if you like eating local food. Good ambience too.

This restaurant is very reasonable, has an extensive menu with both veg and non veg items. The food was excellent and the beer cold. Overall a plus in that we ate there twice while in Mahabalipuram.
