The cottages are right on the beach and on the other side of palolem which is comparatively less crowded. We opted for sea-view cottages - the cottages are of sub-standards and not at par with what they charge. The restaurant had an extensive menu and the food was good.

had drinks here over a slow afternoon. Nice and cool with a lovely breeze passing thru. Our son had rice wich was a large portion and nice. There was a nice lazy seating area with a loungy sofa style deck. Menu was nice altho we had no plans to eat here, we will do in the near future.

Lovely location at the south end of Palolem beach. Great food and great cocktails at a good price. Heaven the owner is an amzing host full of charm ( especially to the ladies ) This restaurant also benefits from a bit of a cool breeze in the evenings which is very welcome

This is a review for the restaurant at Papillon. (We've stayed at the huts once before and they are just OK, nothing special). We've eaten here maybe 6 times. The food here is great! So fresh and tasty. The salads are amazing with huge range to try. It has an extensive menu, with lots of options across a large range... More

I popped into Papillon many times for dinner, and breakfast. The sea facing beach huts are also a stunning place to wake up!
