Simple, homely place with a fantastic location and of course freshest of sea foods. It sits right on the samudra beach serving up some sumptuous sea foods. We had their prawns, fish and calamari. All yummy.

Definitely get out of your hotel to eat very authentic southern Indian food- on the edge of the water! They do take credit cards. We stayed at the Taj and the food was very average and way more expensive.
