We went for lunch there, Place was almost full and had a very good crowd. Very nice seating arrangements. The place had very good positive vibes and food was also good.

A cool bar with outdoor seating (bring your repellant!) with awesome food from a tiny, and everyday changing menu. Interesting and great dishes unexpected combinations, for a very reasonable pricing.

A fabulous breezy restaurant with a view of the sea, lazy seating, a menu that includes both Indian, Indian-chinese and continental dishes, Yummy!! We loved the hot rotis, curries, thin-crust pizza, innovative brinjal bakes and chocolate desert. Breakfast offers fresh cut fruit.
