Lunch at Mango Tree,Hampi

Day 1: After the visit to Virupaksha Templa and the Hemakuta temples cluster our next stop was for lunch at Mango Tree restaurant in Hampi. The approach to the place is through a lovely banana plantation.This is a mud house with a rural ethnic theme and set in idyllic surrounding  on the banks of the Tungabhadra river with a spectacular view. To eat you need to sit cross legged on the floor on mats and the food is served on a low table.The ambiance is amazing and awesome. There is a huge mango tree around which the eatery is constructed. The food is simple and is served on banana leaves in steel plates.The pictures below tell  their own story:
