Nice restaurant with friendly staff, Good & Tasty Food. Offers a great sunset views & relax. Must give a try if you are in Kovalam, you won't be disappointed. Food Prices could have been reasonable, everything else is nice and especially courteous and friendly staff.

It is very hard to locate this hotel. The food though well prepared but portions are very small. It seems that it is geared more to the foreigners. There were no locals in the restaurant other than staff( friendly staff)-- as with anywhere in the world if the locals don't use it stay away,,!!

This small outlet is where we can have that homely feeling - the cuisines they serve and the warm hospitality they extend gives us that feeling. They really care for our comfort. Though it is a small one looking like a temporary set up, the comfort and care together with the nice cooked food makes me just visit the restaurant... More

Sanjeevini is a great place to watch the sunset, relax at lunch time, enjoy a beer, read the paper (there is always one available) eat fabulous local food, bury your feet in the cool, soft beach sand that is the floor here, and even have your clothes made as a tailor operates there too. What I love about this place... More

Gave in to the hawker on the beach (finally) but glad we did. Lovely setting, especially the sand on the floor, felt like we were eating on the beach. The waiter Shiva was so welcoming, made our visit that bit more special. Food was very good and beer was available. All at a good price.

This place is set back a little from the sea. Only small with a sandy floor. The food is fabulous, the curries are up there with the other top 5 on tripadvisor and very reasonably priced. Will visit again next time in Kerela.

This is hidden away a little so best found in daylight on 1st visit. Good for snacks at lunchtime as well as a full meal at dinner. Very good value. Very friendly helpful service. There is a little shop attached with fabric/clothes.
