Nicely situated with pleasant views. Uncomplicated sort of place with a nice atmosphere. The food is very good, my tuna steak was sublime and very reasonably priced. The place filled quickly and is obviously popular. One for straightforward decent food and setting.

The rooftop is nice but only a couple of tables have a proper view with the rest set lower down. There's a good menu all at tourist prices and I got the 1000 rupee veg curry. It was great, 5 bowls of interesting and richly...More
