Good to see Shiva still going strong. His restaurant is a wonderful lunchtime haven off Samudra beach. Busy place which is always a good sign but with a relaxed feel about it.

What a great little place to eat, relax and just enjoy being in Kovalam. Food is excellent, the service is fantastic. Where else would you go for a real beach hut experience?

Food here was very good. Everyone, both vegetarians, fish eaters and carnivores were very pleased. I never had poppadums as nice as these. And the fish I had (cooked in a banana plant in a clay oven) was very tasty and something so different from the norm. Service was exceptional. We were a large party of 17 people.Upon booking our...

A good place to hangout with neat and clean surroundings. The owner 'Shiva' knows how to tap customers and make them comfortable. Be specific to what your taste is. A bit costly though as compared to other joints where you get good food too. You can sip a chilled beer too at this place :)

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
