Restaurant       : Restaurant Bambu
Address             : Right at the end of main lane adjacent to Canoa Beach.    

What’s Special?: Crepes, Sea-food and the wonderful view of the clean beach, blue water and the high waves.

Hotel/Restaurant Bambu maybe the most popular place in Canoa, and this we realized when we landed up at the door step confident that we would just walk in and get a room for the night. We realized we were hugely mistaken as soon as we saw the number of people waiting at the reception.Just a nod by the receptionist and we got the message- NO ROOMS AVAILABLE.

Just our luck. Never the less, I loved the place the moment I stepped in. The vibe was so beachy. I decided that even if we wouldn’t get the opportunity to stay in this beautiful hotel, but at least we could come and enjoy our meals here.

So ALL our meals- BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER we had in the Bambu restaurant. We just could not get enough.

Imagine having butter garlic prawns with rice and steamed veggies sitting out in the patio, facing the beach. I would love to spend all my waking moments here without a doubt.

Restaurant Bambu offers an indoor and an outdoor sitting. The interior decorations are simple yet perfect. Outside, you will find lush green trees, blossoming bushes, wooden decorative pieces and even a wooden bench press. Heights of being health conscious:).

Once we got settled, we went straight to ordering food. Below are the dishes we tried in the three meals that we had in this restaurant.

Mixed Batido(Milkshake with Coconut and pineapple)
– Blackberry Juice
– Simple Mojito

2)Main Course:
– Bambu breakfast(Scrambled eggs, fruit, tea and juice)
– Chicken and Mushroom Crepe
– Garlic butter prawns with rice and veggies
– Chicken with rice

– Chocolate and banana Crepe


 Each and every meal that we had here, left us more than satisfied. In fact in between waiting for our meals we also had the option of keeping ourselves occupied by playing pool, table tennis or sitting in the reading section and reading books/magazines contributed by tourists who have stayed in the hotel over time.

All in all, the experience of Hotel Bambu was memorable. Next time I am in Canoa, I will make sure to book a room in advance and get an opportunity to enjoy the rooms, the food and the ambiance all at once.
