“Good food served with impolite and rude service. Avoid this place.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Good sea food, no doubt. Value for money prices. But thats where its end.
Very disorganised and poor service. Cant believe how this restuarant survives. At 10.20, the server ( not the one who took orders) comes to the table and informs us that we order fast and restaurant last order is at 10.45. We inform him that there is still 20 min left and he gives the most ridiculous answer, that according to the watch at the reception, it is nearing 10.45, The bill arrives and we have been wrongly billed for large peg of drink, though we ordered small. Amount was not big and we could have ignored, but the answered really irritated. We have got 60 and you need to pay for 60 ml though you may have ordered for 30 ml. Again, had to refuse to budge and got the bill altered. At 11 we present the card to pay the bill, and he says, sorry counter closed. We can now only accept cash. Directs us to go to the nearest ATM to withdraw cash. The person on counter refuses to help saying that he has already closed the card machine. After a lot of screaming, some one come out , offers an apology because i am with family, and completes the billing with card. Also, sees sense when the clock on the reception is showing 11.25, while his and mine watches showed 11.05. However, he is not really able to understand why i should get irritated and not stay calm after all that experience. May be need to practise yoga and give up sea food. :)
My first review of any place with such negativity. Avoid this, unless you feel this is the only place left to have seafood.
I hope the owner reads this and gets in touch and is able to understand how his staff is behaving.

“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Visited on a sunday evening and this 450 cover restaurant was full. The seafood was excellent and of the local style and cooked as in home with minimal oil and appropriate oil and spices used like a local granny would cook.

“Makes you regret your choice..!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Okay,let me get straight to the point. Go to this place only if you wish to get dissatisfied. The quantity of the food is less and keeps getting lesser by day.Service is sluggish and mind you I have been complaining to the manager from more than 6 months now but no improvements.You order something and you get something else with a minimum delay of half an hour. The only quickest item which will come to your table is the bill and finger bowl. There are other brilliant hotels out there to chose from at a close proximity.Kindly don't spoil your mood by visiting this place ever. There you have my honest review.Thank you.

“Awesome and fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Praws, crab, oyster and of course -- fish. Amrut in Karwar seems to be the place to try out some of the best seafood from this part of India.

“Lost in the Hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Concentrating too much on Publicity, and less on Dining and Quality is making this Joint slowly loose out to the other Upcoming Sea Food Joints in Karwar. The Quantity of Food is lesser, and quality of the staff, except for a few dedicated ones, is not there.
