Menu very extensive so never explored it all. Enjoyed Indian and fresh fish dishes we with beers most nights of our vacation. Fellow dinners were fans of their 2 for 1 drink specials. Service can be spotty so be sure to follow up with waiter if they forgot something.

Bang in the middle of the beach, the Café is the ideal meeting hub that is the darling of all guidebooks. Along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the exciting place provides a breathtaking view of a pair of rocky crags at either end of the beach. It is also the ideal location to watch Palolem’s legendary sunsets.
