The food was average but the service was very poor. It even took them half an hour to bring the bill. Lovely view out to see but nothing else was good about it.

The location couldn't be better! Right on the Pappanassam Beach! You can sit at the restaurant table and see the fishermen mending their nets or you can look at the people doing religious ceremonies or you can see dolphins in the sea if you're lucky!...More

Ate here twice during my stay and enjoyed both meals. The seafood was absolutely delicious and incredibly fresh, had prawns and a really good butter fish. You get to choose how you want your fish cooked and flavoured, which was a nice touch. Would recommend.
