This is the only place we went back to for dinner - great cocktails, quick service (in Kerala terms) and stunning fish and prawns

“I could not have wished for more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Simply perfect.
From its stunning location on the North Cliff, overlooking the crashing surf on Pappanasam beach New Kerala Cafe was easily the best choice in a very competitive strip.
They just did everything better.
Market fresh produce daily.
Professional chefs.
Killer design/decor - the Cafe's structure incorporates 4 massive coconut palms!!
Spot-on ambiance 24/7.
Beautiful staff.
And THAT view. Backdrop to the most excellent people-watching.
I tried loads of places over 3 months.
In the end I couldn't see the point of going elsewhere.
A gem. Truly.
