“Excellent food, value for money”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Easily one of the better restaurants in Kovalam. We ate there every evening after a very disappointing meal at another restaurant down the road. The service was excellent - please ask for Arun Das - he was superb as our server.

“Good treats”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Excellent potato rosti! If you want spicy food you must ask otherwise will be a little bland but ok. Staff are very good. Banana fritter great dish to end your meal. Their salads are also very good, overall very good value for money.

“'Cold coffee' and Bircher muesli”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We'll try anywhere without touts! It feels like you're taking a bit of a chance going up the stairs without knowing what you'll find up there. But don't worry, it's a refuge from the pushy people on the boardwalk, who will look at you in amazement as you choose somewhere to eat without assistance. If you like hands-off service, it's a nice place to nurse your sunburn over a "cold coffee" (like a milky iced coffee without the ice) and a slice of cake. We didn't go for dinner, and the lunch menu is a little limited (we wanted to order pizza but they didn't start serving that until 5), but if you want a Euro-friendly breakfast, this is the ticket.
