Anithas was recommended to us by a friend and we are so happy she did. My husband had stuffed chicken which was a flavor explosion in every bite and I had Fish Mollie and lemon rice which was perfectly paired and prepared. Delicious! We indulged in desert and they were plated with artful design and the perfect touch to finish a fabulous dinner. The ladies favorite is aptly named! Staff and ambience were wonderful. Step a few feet off the beaten track to go upstairs and enjoy the cool breeze and culinary skills of Anithas!

I stumbled upon this hidden gem one evening wandering around after all the beach facing restaurants disappointed with their offer and prices. Walking by, I heard Ratheesh (the chef) calling me upstairs to the restaurant. He showed me his fresh fish and prawns, then made special customized grilled dishes for me. His hospitality is amazing, the place is so cosy I came another time, that time for some fish curry. His homemade chapaties are so delicious..

Anita's Bistro and Bar provided a truly delightful dining experience. Situated in a serene location, the restaurant exuded a peaceful ambiance, allowing for a relaxing meal. The friendly and excellent service elevated the overall charm, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The highlight was undoubtedly the fresh and tasty local Indian cuisin us e. Each dish carried authentic flavors, invoking a sense of homeliness. The menu showcased a thoughtful selection, offering a delightful journey through regional tastes. Adding to the allure was the breathtaking view of the ocean. The restaurant's strategic location provided a picturesque backdrop, enhancing the dining experience. It was a perfect blend of tranquil surroundings and vibrant flavors. Remarkably, Anita's Bistro and Bar managed to offer this exceptional experience with good value for money. The pricing reflected a fair balance considering the quality of service, the delectable cuisine, and the scenic setting. It undoubtedly stands out as a recommendable spot for those seeking not only a flavorful meal but also a serene and enjoyable dining atmosphere.

Prior to COVid, I recommended this place as the place to eat! Great food and service…but we returmed in February 2023, to be throughly disappointed…we ordered pasta prawn and a pasta chicken dish. Pasta was extremely overcooked, few to no prawns to be found and little chicken… the sauce was doctored catsup and they even provided a bottle of catsup, I guess, to add to sauce. I have to remember this is India and not Italy… ect, but it was below expectations from what Anitha’s was prior to COVid. They indicated they would take a card but it was a hassle… so I paid cash and hope they get their act together to what they once were. Disappointed….

Saw this place on trip advisor so decided to give it a try. Struggled to find it at first as all roads seemed to be dead ends. To find it, locate a restaurant called ‘Miami’ then take the alley to the right. It’s about 50yds up. Once there we were met by warm staff in a lovely clean restaurant. We ordered Keralan chicken (spicy Indian KFC), paneer curry, rice x 2, naan and with drinks we spent about £12! The food was delicious and very well cooked. I can’t recommend the place highly enough. Superb!

This cozy restaurant is on the 1st floor close to the southernmost end of Lighthouse Beach. From the restaurant there is a nice view of the beach. We chose to eat almost all of our meals here during our holiday week. The food is really delicious. Hygiene is good. The staff are sweet and friendly. You quickly feel at home and very welcome. We are already very much looking forward to our next visit.

We had the Kerala fried chicken and the masala butter chicken and both were excellent, the best food that we’ve had in Kerala. A clean and peaceful location at the end of lighthouse beach, nice upstairs seating area and really lovely people. Just follow the alleyway back from the beachfront and look for the sign. We’ll definitely be back.

We had breakfast here twice and dinner once during our 4 day stay in Kovalam. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. The staff is attentive. Biju was our waiter. He was kind, professional and became a friendly face every time we appeared. I enjoyed the Super Bowl - Vegetables were perfectly cooked. For a special evening…we had Keralan Mussels- DELICIOUS and a Special Fish cooked with Masala and wrapped in Banana Leaves! It was outstanding! We highly recommend this tranquil spot for delicious meals!

Best breakfast in Kovalam! You cannot miss it. It was delicious and it had everything: toast, omelette, tea or coffee, fruit salad. Also the service was great, and paid good attention to the costumer.

I went there to eat after being told it was very good, oh dear. Ordered a beer which was 8.7 abv. Too strong for me so i ordered lime soda.Then after what seemed like hours i decided that if they dont want to take my order i will leave , so i left.I have seen faster things wearing a shell ffs.If you go there make sure you have plenty of time.If you have a plane to catch that night i suggest you eat at the airport.😇😇

We enjoyed the ambience of the place though it can be a tricky to find first time. Yousaf is very helpful. Prices are reasonable. Personal favourite was the chicken pizza
