“Good food, music & sunset view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

It's not a place one might exactly stumble across. It's about 800m-1km down the road from the 'main' area visitors to Cherai beach usually go. I found it thanks to tripadvisor reviews and a helpful local who gave me directions. But this actually works in the cafe's favor as the place has that 'undiscovered gem' feel to it and is not overrun by tourists.

The burger I had was as good as it gets in India, with a side of hand-cut fries. The best part though is the view of the setting sun in the ocean horizon, next to a clean sandy beach and calm waves, no crowds and groovy music. Free wi-fi access was available but the connection was painfully slow though to be fair it was probably down to the ISP n beyond the control of the cafe.

Highly recommended.

“Great rapport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The owner here makes this restaurant.. He is a model of excellence in 'customer relations' .. it is a beautiful little place to just hang out as many people do... great snacks and drinks.. we love the Virgin Mohitos ... It is very different to the local Indian restaurants ... in food and in clientele... great for burgers, sandwiches, pizza, fish and more ...

“What a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

A very relaxed place to hang out, eat great food and see the dolphins if you come in early.
Try the milkshake with almonds and coffee and the sweet cherai burger, they're great!
Great job guys!

“A little piece of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Chilliout is a great find. We stumbled upon it during a day-trip to Cherai and were very pleased to take a sea change from the Kerala food safari to some tasty burgers and sandwiches... with real bacon. The ambience is great, beach is at your feet, and service is great.

One note to the proprietors: your address seems to be incorrectly listed, which means that you are not showing up on the trip advisor maps and searches, not found on the Kochi maps nor the Cherai ones.

“Great place, awesome food, excellent service and unbelievable location and view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely loved this place! Went back three days in a row for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Even when the electricity was down on the beach the service and food remain top quality - credit to Edward the French host/waiter who really makes you feel like a valued regular. The view of the sea lapping against the beach and the many crabs that come out at night make this a place you can easily sit and relax for hours. Try the 2nd best sandwich (best is available with bacon) in the world for breakfast, the BBQ cooked tiger prawns for dinner or the homemade burger. The virgin mojito is truly delicious.
A great place, better than anywhere else on Cherai Beach!
