“Excellent Food”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Try the roasted calamari... really good.

Its one place where you can watch the sunset over kovala beach while sipping on chilled beer and snacking on spicy sea food. Good place and good service.

I wish they wouldn't keep the stinky fish right next to the service area although it is meant to attract people and create a beach side shack ambience...

We tried the roasted calamari , chilly mussels, roasted tiger prawns and some crab prep. All good.

“Best restaurant on the beachside”

We visited the restaurant for lunch. We had kerala fish roast and prawns koilee with rice. We enjoyed our meal. The service at the retaurant is good. The place is by far the cleanest and the best restaurant on the beachside.

“Excellent food....”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I had Butter-fish fry and soup on a rainy day seated in a corner sea facing seat. The food was wonderful and tasty but i was little disappointed with the soup which had a south indian touch. Ambience was very pleasant with malayalam raga playing in background. i loved my food and the time spent in this resturant.

“Recently refurbished restaurant but not the food!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The restaurant has just been refurbished but there seems to be no improvement in the food quality.They seem to be relying on their position on Tripadvisor to attract customers.

“Good food & View”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Everything, food, atmosphere, service and the view. The first thing that you notice about this is the cleanliness and ever informative host. You can inform about your food preference meaning spicy, extra spicy, kerala style etc...
