Abslutely fantastic experience. Have eaten well in Kovalam, Anithas took taste to a different level. Traditionally cooked Kerala dishes are superb and served in a beautifully situated and relaxed environment. Staff are attentive and not intrusive. Will be here again!!!

Anithas is tucked away just off the lighthouse end of lighthouse beach. A warm welcome, beautiful seating area and excellent menu. The fish is delicious and Yusuf is charming and attentive. A really delightful place to eat.

This restaurant is quite simply, lovely. Set back a street from the sea front (it's not hard to spot as there's a huge hanging 'Anithas' for all to see) this place is a joy. Great setting and ambience. Chilled music accompanies your evening and the...More
