“Preference to foreigners”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

My husband and I had gone to Bay View Point at Taj Fisherman's cove to celebrate my birthday. We had specifically booked a table close to the sea ,a day prior to our arrival and requested candle light in our table. But one reaching the restaurant, we were whisked to a table which was far away from the sea shore. When we asked about this, he mentioned that the tables near the sea were already reserved. But as the crowd started coming in, which comprised mainly of foreigners, they were taken only to the tables close to the sea shore. In fact they had not even booked a table earlier. I felt really offended as we were given only the "far away from the sea"tables.The waiter did not even have patience to listen to my order and hurried to the table having the foreigners. The food was not all that great either. We being from middle class have to wait for special occasions to go to fancy restaurants such as this. But the treatment metted out by differentiating the indians and foreigners was so terrible that it still gives a bad memory.

“Great ambiance and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

I loved this place for the location. It is inside fisherman's cove resort. Situated right on the beach. So we can have lunch or dinner by the beach side, enjoying the cool sea breeze, listening to the crashing waves and candle lit. Ideal place for dinner dates! The sea food here is amazing. Though options seem limited I loved the food. we had lunch and dinner both were satisfactory. Be it fish curry, mutton sukka, or the flaky parattos. nethli fish fry is another must try. It is costly for the portion they serve. Did not try the drinks. Ideal to hang out for long time with hot food on a cold sea side.

“Exotic Location, Excellent Food & Best Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I have visited the restaurant with two colleagues on 17.10.13. Despite error in communication for booking table, staff at the restaurant was courteous enough to offer us a good table. It was a wonderful & memorable experience to have delicious sea food under full moonlight in front of roaring sea. Quality, quantity & preparation of food was wonderful. Service is very prompt and recommendation of food by staff was excellent. Overall very good experience and its value for money.

“Very good sea food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Sea food restaurants are cropping up left right and center. However very few are actually good. This is one of the best places to eat sea food. And they cook only the catch of the day. So its very fresh. And view is amazing.

Imagine fantastic service and delicious fresh seafood enjoyed less than 20 years away from the ocean's edge. Enjoyed amazing food with a great view here for a business meeting.
