This is the only place east of promenade road on the beach. Its a govt owned cafe hence slightly lackluster service, rest all is fine. Its open 24 hrs and menu is decent.

This is located right on beach. Nice view from the place. It's very close to French war memorial. Self service restaurant. Price is moderate. Perfect place to hangout a while.

If you wish a nice coffee, expresso or affogato and a selection of dish it is a perfect place. Unfortunately, there is no loger a service at the table and you should order yourself at the counter.

Though the food is average but the ambiance is good. You can sit here and watch the sun, breeze and the overall view.

Overpriced food and drinks. Average and sometimes poor taste combined with poor service and unavailability of most items sums up this place. The only good thing about this place is the location and the view from the seating area.
