Approach to the cafe is tricky, with narrow roads and congested by-lane.Difficult to find car park. That aside, certainly worth a first and second visit to experience... More

We had fried prawns, calamari, pomfret as starters and fish curry with rice as main course. All was cooked very well, flavoured with good... More

Bob's Cafe is a nice place to hang out: from breakfast till late in the night, you can stay there, eat and drink seated at the beautiful ocean facing balcony. The guys that work there are really nice, they cook really good fish and we felt like home. We recommend Bob's Cafe to everyone who just likes to relax! Michael... More

Good place to enjoy Sunday afternoon with sea breeze, food and friends. The cafe is located at a location which provides you an amazing view of the sea and surroundings. You may even get an almost independent floor to eat food.

On weekdays it's easy to get rooms. Advance booking recommended for weekend trips. Food is average. Service is average. Rooms are basically someone's house kinda place, so rooms too are average. Specially ask for the SEA TOP cottage, if wanted that only. That's a best deal here, I guess. If visiting, please give my love to their pet. He is... More
