This restaurant is tucked away in the middle of a fishing village. You could walk by it and not know of its existence. We went searching for it based on (again!) a recommendation by a French travel guidebook. Luckily, the locals we enquired with knew exactly where it was. This is stricly a low-budget joint with not much in terms... More

The food was very good and prices rather on the high side but still a bit lower than the average overpriced "seafood" restaurant in Mahabalipuram. Portions much more generous than in other places. Nice setting directly overlooking the beach. Definitely recommended - when staying in Mahabalipuram head straight there for your meals and skip trying other places which will be... More

We just arrived there and didn't inform ourselves about the prices. Went to this restaurant. Paid 1200 RPS for one fried plane fish and one prawn and a hand of chips. Also the coke price was way to hight. I tried to talk to the owner, but it was too late. Normal price for a fish is about 150 RPS.... More

As I was staying in Lutz guesthouse next door, I frequently came over here for a snake (what you will find if you are looking for a snack on their menu), an ice cold beer or a meal with friends. Admittedly I didn’t try the fresh seafood, but their vegetarian dishes were good value and the chicken curry outstanding. A... More

Reasonable place with good vieuw .You see the sea from very close and fisherman at work from your balcony. Room basic but clean. Manager is friendly. Food is very good. If you eat fish. Quite expensive. 750-1000 rs. Nigotiate. Reconfirm your reservation if made in more than 5 days advance. Tend to forget.

The food is good but not worth the price. The place is expensive. The sea food is fresh. You can chose the fish and then they will cook it for you. Location is also good. It is on in the fishermen colony right on the beach. They have a nice terrace. Not air-conditioned.
