This really is a great place to eat. I came here several times while staying in the area. The cafe sits 5 meters off the beach with an brilliant ocean view, definitely worth visiting at sunset. I tried a good variety on the menu and was never disappointed. The dishes are simple, good portion size and taste amazing. Edy the... More

Enquried around and found that the place only opens for a certain period of the year. Disappointed that no info was available on tripadvisor or Google... More

This place must be the best restaurant in Cherai beach.I had a very delicious lunch and a fresh fruit juice here and it was all very well prepared.Service was also good.The ambience is also really...chill out..Only thing food might seem a little expensive to those on a very tight budget but the price absolutely corresponds to the quality.

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.
