“Absolutely gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Perhaps wrongly overshadowed by the two European competitors les 3 elephants and chilli out but definitely never beaten. Food quality is excellent from breakfast to evening. Staff ate extremely attentive and friendly . I would defo be returning here on a low note guys ......your wash room is not very nice. Whoever is responsible for this area .... you are letting down a great team.

“Hmmm mmm!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

I've just left the Brighton Beach House where I stayed for 10 nights. I ate here every day as the food was just so good and a great selection for veggies! The breakfasts are generous and the curries delicious, worked right through the menu!! Everything freshly prepared, the curry leaves plucked straight from the garden outside the kitchen!! I don't eat fish but saw it delivered fresh every day where you could take your pick from the selection, those who had it gave it the thumbs up!! A great place to chill and have breakfast with the dolphins or a cold beer and soak up the sunset. Great service from all the guys and super reasonable, curry for 120-200 and lemon/garlic rice for 80..(lemon rice DELICIOUS!!!)

“Excellent place to eat,drink and dolphin watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Really friendly staff, very tasty food at reasonable prices and a genuinely nice place to spend time. We went there on the second night of our four night stay and enjoyed it so much that we returned for each of the next three nights, mind you there aren't many restaurants to choose from in this delightfully quiet part of India. If you visit Cherai Beach you really should go to this restaurant (you could even stay there too!)

“Could be good but wasn't”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Recommended by our hotel as the next best beach restaurant after Chilliout - that was closed for the day. The location is perfect - right on the beach. Potentially a great place to go, but it didn't pan out that way. Whilst they were open for business, they were not prepared for it. As soon as we ordered lunch, the waiter got on his motorbike and disappeared up the road for nearly an hour before coming back with a bag full of shopping. It was then another hour before the lunch appeared, by which time we had gone off the whole idea. The meal was only just edible and we will not be going back again. Shame.

“awesome place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Have to second the review just below. Awesome food, awesome beach location, incredibly friendly and welcoming team. Very relaxed and mellow atmosphere - hours grow into days here. Rooms look spotless and clean although I didn't stay there. Keep it up Rahul!
