My brother-in-law had come home on a short holiday from the US and the family decided that we should take him to a place that would at least be on par with good restaurants in America. We decided it would be lunch at Taj Vivanta, Kovalam and spotted the restaurant during a golf cart tour of the property. We sat... More

Bait has a wonderful ambiance - you can hear the waves break on the sand and smell the wonderful seafood whilst you sip a cool beer. The food is excellent, even though its proximity to the Taj means it's expensive by Keralan standard. The Mussels Masala to start was absolutely delicious - one of the best I've tasted. When we...

located on the kovalam beach in Taj Vivanta hotel, a great setting with wooden outlay. Wonderful staff. Great food options. Wide range East and west. But.....during day time it's hot and humid. They can do more to prevent insects coming on to the table. Dinner is a better option than lunch......go for it

This is a luxury beach hotel (part of Taj Vivanta Kovalam)... Wood fired pizza is excellent and the beach ambience is perfect.

In terms of atmosphere, location, setting, and food; this is the best in Trivandrum. Was part of a group that was looked after very well by the staff over dinner. The food was fresh and delicately textured. The service from Ms. Chayanika (and her team) was anticipatory, attentive and fleet of feet. We ended enjoying the evening to its fullest... More

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.
