On the lazy by-lanes of beach the restaurant stands alone. Sea food is its delicacy & one can select the fishes from the array of fresh catch. Suggest your own recipe & get ready for mouth licking meal. Don't expect high end AC kind of environment rather get refreshed with cool breezes from sea . If you have settled down... More

All seafood lovers can have a feast in this restaurant. They prepare fresh seafood which are very tasty. You cannot expect much hygiene here. If you are a vegetarian please avoid this restaurant.

We were in India for three weeks and this was our least favorite place to eat. If you don't like seafood, there is nothing there for you. If you do like seafood, you have to be ok eating it with flies swarming all over you and the food.

Very good range of sea food and non veg. Best was crab and tuna fish fry from whatever we tried. Good view of the street from corner seats.
