It is quite cheap, something that i did not expect from the first glance. The food is fine tho: i got the momos, not very good, and the cheese naan, fine. I guess during low season the effort is lower in the kitchen, nevertheless they're extremely nice, so it is worth to be tried once! and then you can judge... More

We stayed in the same resort so we had all our meals there. Extremely tasty and hygienic. My four year daughter ate everything we ate and had no troubles in digesting. So, it's safe to say that the food is good. Also, the taste was a class apart. Mainly, Chinese and continental cuisines. A must go to place...

Kids loved it here. Friendly staff and lovely sunset views. Kids loved the burgers and pasta and adults enjoyed the Indian curries with naan.

seven years ago this was my favourite clifftop venue with amazing ambience and food. This week we returned to probably the worst food on the clifftop and staff that didn't seem to care about the visitors or the food. Such a shame to see such a change at Clafouti. Very disappointing meal indeed.

Had a very boring veges in cashew gravey. There were perhaps 2 tablespoons of veges. The drink I ordered was warm and I had to ask for ice. It's off season here so perhaps this place is better when the season gets going?

Wide variety of options and food is very tasty; especially for someone who has come early in the morning to enjoy the beach.
