Taken dinner with the family. Pizza was soggy. In vegetable soup option was only carrot soup. When asked from Chef whether he can prepare something else, he showed his inability. Desserts were just O.K.

Great Food. Great Ambience. Great location with lagoon on one side and Arabian Sea on the other side. Fish and chips was yummy. Red snapper on mango wood is must try.

It's on the beach side just meters away. The food was great. It's great ambience. The selection of sea food items cannot be termed vast.
