Very good, fresh food! Seafood was very nice. Expect relaxed service (you're at the beach after all, enjoy it!), and know that they do not serve alcohol, you must go to the one restaurant further down the beach if you want a drink.

Nice relaxed spot to have an espresso next to a quiet stretch of Cherai Beach. Friendly owner is happy to have a chat. Strange to find French cuisine in India, but as he pointed out, sometimes you just want a break from chili with everything.

we explored a lot at Cherai and Chilliout turned out to be the best european cuisine. we ordered grilled chicken and tuna which was served with ratatouille. the burgers were home made with wholegrains. the papaya and prawn salad is worth giving a try. Eddie the french proprietor was very informative about the cuisine. as in the name, chilli was... More

Location is great, food is amazing and the feel of the place is just wonderful! Perfect place for a chill meal and cold drink while checking your email after a day at the beach. They rent sunbeds right in front of the cafe.

This ended up being our last dinner during our trip to India and it did not disappoint! Although we had not tired of Keralan food, we found it hard to find a place open on a weeknight around 9pm on Cherai Beach so to Chillout we went. The owner as well as the restaurant were delightful and made us feel... More

As an Indian, Chilli has become an involuntary part of diet. So if you are not ready for experimenting (as my wife!) do not venture here! Everything from the crepes to the salad (prawn papaya) were sweet, yet terrific! The burger was terrific and you could tell it took a lot of time. And finally the desserts (creme brulee and... More

If you get fed up with poor coffee and too much curry then this place is well worth a visit. Run by a French guy who decided that Cherai Beach needed a "spice free" restaurant and decent coffee. He was very welcoming and pleased to offer advice on things to do/places to visit whilst we were in Cherai Beach for... More

After several days of eating great curries, it was a nice change to have a meal here. No spices are used to cook, just really fresh food (we chose prawn papaya salad, barracuda fish with home made fries and delicious creme brûlée), cooked perfectly. The French - Portuguese owner is an excellent host and creates a great atmosphere, right by... More
