We spent a couple of hours here most days. Very relaxing overlooking lighthouse beach. Wifi 40 rupees an hour but not always working

The service was pathetic, as they only wanted to serve foreigners (non-Indians!!). The vegetarian fare was completely useless

The range of dishes on offer is extensive and satisfying, the staff are lovely and friendly, the location upstairs means you get less looky loos peering in on you eating and you also get more of the cooling sea breezes... a little piece of quiet and calm away from the maddening crowds.

Sometimes when you travel you need a respite from the local food. Popped in here for a coffee, waffle and Skype call to my daughter.

Coffee was excellent. Waffle was as good as you'll get with the ingredients available and the choc sauce on top, just what I needed. Wifi cost around 50p for an hour . . . . .

Also ate here with a group one evening - super food, the real Keralan deal - even though it did take an hour to arrive. Large groups always seem to stun Indian kitchens . . . . but beer and nibbles make the wait quite painless!

Wandered from our fancy hotel to try a local restaurant. This poorly named restaurant was recommended and probably is the best of a very poor bunch. It's upstairs above some shops on the prom. Good views over the beach and a lovely charming waiter who worked really hard to make us enjoy the experience but the menu was too international, trying too hard to please everyone, so lacked conviction in anything. The Indian food was terrible, no colour or spice or authenticity. Can not speak of the western food, because why would you eat that when you chose to come to India?? The vest clad, merry Germans seemed to enjoy their kartofel salad though!
