The Malabar is consistently good. It has a good range of seafood and a good range of Indian food. It is the busiest restaurant in the low season.

The curry's here are not fine. If you eat here, go for tandoori fish. Prawns are also oke here. They charge excessive for the fish if you don't make it clear up front.

We tried an authentic Kerala dish called "Fish Pollichathu" with Chapathis for dinner. The food was simply superb, the fish fresh and cooked to perfection. The prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly and co-operative. Overall, a good dining experience by the beach.

The food is superb, try the sizzling mixed fish dish it's delicious, also the tandoori chicken, it's the best I have ever tasted. We ate there lots of times. The atmosphere is great, the staff are very friendly and work hard to insure you have an evening to remember. You can sit and watch the early evening catch of fish coming in and lifted onto the restaurant counter. Watch the sun go down and the night time fishermen going out for their catch. So relaxing, no where else to go, nothing else to do but enjoy. Jo and Andy

If you want to go where everyone knows your name, shoot a little pool and get together with an intimate or large group of friends; this is the place to go. Great food and wonderful staff.
