Great breakfast with excellent views

In the cliff, most restaurants offered pretty much the same breakfast options. Clafouti's breakfasts happens to be one of the better offerings at lower prices and with the same magnificent views of the Arabian Sea.

I had dinner there, vegetarian food wasn't good and really oily. Don't know about fish though. They do good breakfast with homemade bread and croissant! With Nutella!

Great service that was far faster than anywhere else around, friendly and helpful staff that even told me what to eat and what not to eat when I was feeling under the weather (that was NO way sales orientated). Delicious food - especially the crab,cocunut coriander - well worth the pincer fight! Thank you boys loved every minute sitting enjoying... More

A beautiful restaurant with seating upstairs and downstairs both facing the sea. Candle lit dinners. Not at all dingy looking unlike some other restaurants nearby. Waiters are very prompt and friendly. Food was awesome especially the calamari we had. In short, a good experience.

The only and real special thing of this place is that the waiters speak quite good English, so they will be able to explain the ingredients of the Indian dishes served. The food was fine, but nothing special. Internet was not working, the price is not cheap, normal if compared to all the others on the cliff.

Very spacious and open, with a wonderful view of the sea from high on the cliff. Food is standard. Perfect place to relax with a mug of chilled beer enjoying the view.

We had a mix of Indian and Tibetan vegetarian food and it was great. we sat upstairs which allowed a cooling breeze and a chance to watch the world go by below. If you looking for somewhere to eat on North Cliff it's definitely worth considering
