But actually once I am in I do like the food. the athmosphere is also quite allright. We came as a family, had coctails and mocktails and a good dinner. Yes we liked it . And even the toilets were clean enough. Nice service. Yes, would go again.

This is the best value for money restaurant on the Lighthouse Beach. We tried Finger fish & Malabar Prawn curry with rice. Authentic taste, large portions and reasonably priced. The sea view is free :) .

It's a one hour boat ride which takes around island , it's a small boat with a outboard engine which takes around the resort . We paid Rs 800 for one hour , really worth trying this . We can see lot of birds and coconut trees .

I have visited this restaurant a number of times recently, but they have painted the floor and walls in dark colours and it is very difficult to see if anyone is in the restaurant. Those that have been there have been limited to two or three tables only.

Ate here one evening, nice enough although nothing special and did not return. Nice to sit and take in the view although personally found the upstairs restaurants were more relaxing

We only ate here for lunch but found the food and service good, if I was staying in the lighthouse beach area I would have returned.

This strip feels a bit like Feungirola without the nightclubs or Puerto Banus without the sports cars. Full of Europeans, which is okay, but avoid the dishes which have no prices or state "daily market price" (generally the fish / seafood options) as these tend to cost the same as you would pay in the UK and are pretty average....

We had pakoras & they were delicious but mostly we just sat, soaked up the view & drank refreshing lime soda & beer. Most of the customers seemed known to the staff, who were friendly & helpful. It seemed like a place that people returned to a lot: we went four times in 3 days! And a huge bonus the... More

We ate here on our last evening after having read the reviews. Service was OK, we chose a fresh snapper (fish) from their iced display and had it simply grilled with some garlic and butter. It was great, spanking fresh and tasty. Lobster is available but at £30 per Kg we gave it a miss.
