Restaurant offers good sea beach views and breeze. Dinner was good. Average service. But service staff was more interested in serving foreign customers. It's common thing in Kovalam beach side restaurants. Ambience is good.

Staff is illiterate and rude. Staff has no manners how to behave with guest and also abusive. Food was like sit. Never ever visit this place again in my life and never recommend to anyone.
