We were staying in a resort nearby and wanted to try out simpler ala carte food and saw a sign for Chrissie's offering Mediterranean and Italian food. We went there and found the food to be very good and inexpensive. On a cold day with sore throat their Honey-Ginger-Lemon drink was to die for. We tried their Mezze platter, falafel... More

We ate here on the basis of reading some pretty positive reviews. Fancied a change from Indian food! Restaurant itself is nice enough, service friendly. That's all the good points really.. Food was below average. My girlfriend had paneer spinach curry and rice, and I had macaroni cheese which arrived almost 20 minutes after the curry! The garlic bread arrived... More

We breakfast and dinner here. For breakfast we had dosa and spanish omlette toast with tea. For dinner we had middle eastern food and pizza with avacado juice. Everything was made with fresh ingredients including the sauce for pizza. Mango marmalade for the toast and avacado juice were the stand outs. Staffs were very helpfull too. Overall a good experience.

Really nice food, we went for a bit of a break from curry and got pizzas they take 40mims for the oven to warm up but were great, if not typically Italian. Pasta also nice.

We we're search in for a good and fun place with non-indian food (needed a break after a few weeks :) ) and we're so happy to have found this place! Everything is home-made, starting from the handmade pasta through the souces and deserts. Was soooooo good! And staff were so nice and justfully proud of their place. We honestly... More

Limited menu. They do make their own pastas. Presentation was nice. We liked the falafel. Other food was small and pricey. Nice dining room and service was friendly.

Had an evening meal here on the day I was ill from having eaten at another restaurant the night before. I had a great salad and the hummus with pita totally hit the spot.

Chrissies is perfect if you want a break from Indian food. We had vegetarian lasagne, pizza and a really lovely mezze (the pittas, babaganoush and taboulah being the standout). The owner was also fab, as was the restaurant itself. It was clean and very welcome. Would definitely visit again if in Thekkady.

This hotel and cafe on Bye Pass Road, Thekkady is a well planned property and has a class style. The restaurant serves good pastas, pizzas, snacks, salads, fresh juices, coffee, tea etc. The dishes are prepared as per order and hence fresh. The service and ambiance is also great.

I stayed here a few years ago and although I was passing through and staying with friends somewhere else in town, I remembers Chrissie's great rooftop cafe, fresh coffee and carrot cake. What surprised me the most was that most of the staff were still the same and that we recognised and remembered each other. A great place to relax... More
