“Basic but lovely”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Anita's was a welcome rest stop to and from our hotel and the beach/Carmona. They serve chicken & beef most days, other items you will have to order one day to eat the next, as it is bought fresh. Don't get me wrong, the food is basic, but it's delicious for that and if you've been travelling through India and are as sick of curries as we got, this is a good way to mix it up whilst still getting something authentic and locally produced.

Anita is very accommodating (yes she sits nearby, but is lovely and chatty, this is her home after all) - she even waived our bill when we didn't have change, trusting us to pay the next time we walked past. Lovely!

“Homemade meals with all fresh ingredients”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Four of us went to Anita's place for dinner one evening, it was totally spontaneous. Her lovely welcome made us stay even though we knew waiting time will be around one hour. The food is worth waiting for! Gosh, it was delicious, full of flavour. Everything is cooked by her husband to order from the fresh ingredients, hence it is recommended to order the meal the day before. Her place is very homely and cosy, it doesn't feel like being in the restaurant but in her home, which we actually really liked. She wasn't hanging around and watching us eat, she was very kind and helpful and making sure we are happy and have enough to drink. Portions were huge, we had soup, salad and main meal, no dessert. Shame we went there on our last day.
