A great Cafe

This is the 24hr restaurant café at the Taj Vivanta. A lovely place besides the infinity pool. The staff, the food and the ambience all stand up to the reputation of this hotel. The menu includes buffet lunch and dinner but one also has the choice of ala carte as well.

We went there for a dinner couple of days back. The first thing you would notice about this restaurant is the view . This is a pool side restaurant which opens further to the magnificent view of the Arabian Sea. This offers a multi-cuisine dietary choice and unlike others even the home cuisine is at its best in taste. Best... More

Brilliant service. The plus point more than food is the staff posted with remarkable hospitality and great attitude. Would definitely return for them. Thanks to Noble, Salyadri, Ali, Mukhtar, Meena and all the other staff posted.

We had dinner at Jasmine bay and it was fabulous. The buffet spread was not very impressive so went for A-la-carte. We mostly had sea food and it was all cooked to perfection based on our preference. Desserts were awesome too! We had almost every dessert on the menu. Ambiance was super cool by the pool side.
