Description: If You Want To Enjoy Home-made European Food 10 Steps From The Beach In A Relaxed And Chilled Ambiamce, Look No Further
Reviewed 22 March 2014

As an Indian, Chilli has become an involuntary part of diet. So if you are not ready for experimenting (as my wife!) do not venture here! Everything from the crepes to the salad (prawn papaya) were sweet, yet terrific! The burger was terrific and you could tell it took a lot of time. And finally the desserts (creme brulee and chocolate mousse) were delicious, though a bit too much. We went there on a sunday and having read the reviews here went early. However the cool breeze and the terrific ambience lazed us and we ordered in parts (over 3 hours!), which was a mistake as things kept finishing very fast (in fact earlier we were told that the creme brulee was finished).

So if you have a lot of time, are ready to try mediterranean food, want to enjoy the cherai beach breeze in a cozy environment, this is the place to be..

If you get fed up with poor coffee and too much curry then this place is well worth a visit. Run by a French guy who decided that Cherai Beach needed a "spice free" restaurant and decent coffee. He was very welcoming and pleased to offer advice on things to do/places to visit whilst we were in Cherai Beach for 5 days. We didn't try the food as the place was shut for no obvious reason when we went back, but it did look nice when we were there for coffee both at lunchtime and in the evening. Give it a try.

Essential spot on Cherai beach. I don't agree with the idea particularly (European food) but can understand what they're trying to do and why. It is not as if you struggle to get Indian food in Kerala after all!!

After several days of eating great curries, it was a nice change to have a meal here. No spices are used to cook, just really fresh food (we chose prawn papaya salad, barracuda fish with home made fries and delicious creme brûlée), cooked perfectly. The French - Portuguese owner is an excellent host and creates a great atmosphere, right by the sea, with soothing music in the background. But, it is very popular and there are few places to eat on Cherai Beach, so try and book to avoid disappointment - which happened to us on the second visit.
