The restaurant is right on the river and away from the street. An excellent respite from the shopping battle outside. The Pakoda and Ginger Lime Soda are a must for a snack with a twist.

Fantastic stop off point in the heat of the day. Ginger ice cream like a dream and we loved the beautiful view. It was great to be surrounded by interesting antiques too and we took lots of photos.

The food was OK, the girls liked their fish fingers. But the absolute highlight of this place is the relaxing atmosphere, overlooking the harbour.

At the back of a fascinating antique store, on the waterside facing the harbour is this charming rustic outdoor restaurant. The seafood is truly Kerala and superb and its a quiet place to rest after all that sightseeing. The Ginger Prawns were very good.
