Very nice view

We only came here for a breakfast, the prices are a little bit above average, but upstairs' part is very well designed. It's chilly and relaxing with a beautiful sea view.

I genuinely enjoyed the pizza margherita! It had fresh basil on it and wasn't overflowing with cheese. I'd have it again if I were to go back. Waiters are very nice as well. And they have good pesto (although it's a bit sweet).

Very nice balcony on the top deck where you can calmly and safely read and stay for a while during off season time. You can enjoy as well the great view of the same balcony during the season time while having a nice budget (for the local touristic patterns) 50 rupees Cafe Au Lait or your meal. Downstairs tables are... More

Best place to watch the sunset, try and get there early and get private little balconies on top deck. Had the coconut prawns curry, grilled calamari and grilled barracuda. The coconut prawns curry was the best we have had. The barracuda was cooked perfect and was devine. Calamari was okay, but lacked a bit compared to the other dishes. Overall,... More

We went to this joint hearing about its Pizza's and grilled fish. On the Pizza front we were pleasantly surprised. It's their specialty, thin crust, home made and wonderful taste. However, we were disappointed with the grilled fish and I made my displeasure known to the management. They said its lunch time so their 'tandoor' was not in operation and... More

Grab a seat in the upper deck, take a balcony table - this is the best spot to have a panoromic bird's eye view of the entire beach and ocean. We have been there for sunset, and it is an amazing place. Food is below average. Service is bad.
