Great place and food

Visited the place with my wife today and was surprised to see this place hidden somewhere between the beach and a small road connecting to it.. Entered with low expectations but was amazed to see a very chilled out place, cosy atmosphere (unlike the cafes at lighthouse). The host was very nice and... read more

Absolutely brilliant as usual. My 5th time of visiting Kovalam and as usual a friendly greeting from Shiva. This man knows this business well. We ate at Sanjeevini at both lunchtimes and evenings, all meals were fab. If you don't know what to eat, Shiva is on hand with his recommendations. Certainly deserve their number 1 rating, keep up the... More

We only ate here once but we would have eaten there more often if we had discovered it sooner. The flavours were out of this world and when we return to Kerala we will definitely be returning to sample more. The staff could not have done more.

We decided to try here on our last night in Kovalam having discovered it while out walking a few days earlier. We caught a tuk-tuk and spent 5-10 minutes going down a number of narrow roads and tracks before having to walk the last 100m. There are just a handful of plastic tables and chairs with a sand covered floor... More

Lovely elevated view of the nice beach (Eve's?) adjacent Samudra with pleasant cooling daytime breeze. Very good food & reasonable prices. Good for lunch. Not very accessible, especially after dark if not travelling from Country Spa - beach access is very steep track and rear local foot access from Samudra not easy to follow & impossible in the dark

We tried each of the restaurants at Samudra Beach. All were good, but for us this became the one where we ate every day of our stay. Everything that we ate here was good and some like the Bengali aubergine, pineapple pachadi and the tikka fish masala were excellent. You're greeted by Shiva, a lovely guy, fluent in eight languages... More

If you are in Kovalam you must visit this restaurant. It is located just off a small beach with beautiful views of the sunset over the sea through the palm trees in the evenings, the staff are really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and the food is the best that i had during a whole month's trip...
