Reserved a table for a group based on Tripadvisor rating. Dinner near the water was a very welcoming experience for our first night in Thiruvananthapuram. Menu had enough variety for our group to have a diverse dining experience. Staff were attentive.

This is a wonderful restaurant by Taj Vivanta, and located right by the sea . The food and service are excellent. But not much vegetarian dishes.

We visited Kovalam on our honeymoon and were told to dine at this restaurant. With hindsight I also wished I had stayed at the Taj Hotel too. The restaurant was wonderful with the combination of being on the beach very friendly staff and great food. Would really recommend it

The chef made us a personal dessert after hearing... More

Food was exceptional south indian style coconut fish curries and condiments. We ate here twice. All curried out after our first week in India we tried their pizzas and we were seriously impressed. Large, super thin crust, and tasty toppings. One of the best restaurant of Trivandrum.Each visit gets you coming back for more. The Ambience is extremely different and... More
