We had a lovely table on the patio overlooking some water and the evening was perfect. It was not a buffet for a change but we were given only 3 options. Of course, they specialized in seafood so it was very fresh. The restaurant was almost empty so we had great service. I would like to see it also in... More

We got sucked into this place while looking for a place to have dinner. Hungry and tired we decided to give it a go, which was a mistake since we ended up having the worst meal during our trip so far. The service was pretty much non-existent, nothing like we've received in India so far. The waiter was trying to... More

We, a party of six, were sucked into eating here by a very persuasive waiter who assured us they served the best food. Well it was the worse food i have ever had in 20 years of visiting India. Utterly inedible so we only paid for the drinks bill. Also got eaten alive by the mossies although they put repellent... More

Delicious food and cheap as chips. Great place for big feeds on a budget. Went there once and then returned three more times over the next two days. Try the chili paneer and the mixed veg curry.

Good view over the cliff. Food was average as was the deco. Table clothes were faded and stained. Service was ok. We still had a good time because of the pleasant weather and the wonderful view.

A bunch of total scammers. My husband and I ordered some food and they got the order wrong and brought a wrong dish. No biggie however they tried to blame US and said we were mistaken and actually ordered this meal. As we were eating I watched a German lady wait at least 25 min for her change. She gave... More

We purchased the fresh fish, shrimps, squid... from the fish market next to the Chinese fishing nets that was prepared in this restaurant - at about 50 meters from the fish market. It was our very first meal in Cochin, we asked it grilled with garlic. Yummmmy:-) At the next table a family was eating a good looking fish food... More

Funny place. The owner is a really nice reggae guy. Service was chaotic but we did get everything we ordered. Veg food was good. There was some garbage aroma in the air, which took a bit away from the otherwise nice culinary experience. Probably better for fish-eaters!

evening bites and staff friendliness are appreciated but the wash room could be with full soap oil and fresh napkins would be great

Ask for Bob, the Reggae Man, he will look after you and makes sure that you get a fresh fish caught that Day.
