Shiva makes this restaurant what it is with his warm, friendly, efficient service and through the relentless work that he puts in, backed by the best chefs in Kovalam. We ate there a number of times and had some fantastic meals. The prawns are to die for and they serve the best rice that we have ever had! The location... More

I went to the restaurant after seeing the view at Trip Advisor. If you love local cuisine than must visit the place. Good & fresh food and ask Shiva, he will prepare as per your taste. Good warm welcoming attitude. Must visit

Just arrived in Kovalam and our UK agent reccommend Sanjeevini as the place to judge all others by. It was quite complicated in the dark to find it as we hadn't been outside the gates of our hotel but we were well pleased we made the effort. Not only was Shiva, the manager, very welcoming but he also put our... More

We loved this restaurant - beautiful location overlooking the beach (yes it's a small climb up but so worth it). The food was some of the best we have eaten in Kerala and Shiva and his team were always very friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic seafood Thali one evening - awesome. Tried a few other restaurants but kept... More

We walked at night from leela to this place based on reviews- walk is along. Dark boulder strewn path but their guides help with torchlights, food is what you would expect in a dhaba like environment, food is average but very cheap, staff very friendly, try the restaurants along lighthouse beach as they are well lit and similar prices/ food...

We visited sanjeevini after looking at the reviews on trip advisor. It is a rustic setting with beautiful views of the sun setting over the Arabian sea. We ordered the vegetarian thalis and thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of Keralan cuisine on offer. The staff are very friendly, attentive and treated us as guests in their own home.
