Getting to this place is an exercise in serendipity. A the end of a long drive through exquisite South Goan villagescape, you get to this small hideout on the waterfront at Colomb beach. The setting is truly exhilarating.
Sadly the good things end with the ambiance. Run by Swiss owners from November to early April, the eatery and rooms are modestly appointed, quite grubby and outrageously priced. A regular burger costs 300 bucks! The Swiss touch was not evident in the food, which was tasteless and infused with leftovers. Hidden gourmet indeed!
The place is open for just 5 months at the height of the season, caters mostly to transient foreigners, charges exorbitant rates, delivers poor quality and constitutes awful value for money; the commercial exploitation of a truly terrific setting.
Goa deserves better.
