The restaurant offers breakfast lunch tea and dinner. Breakfast is complimentary for the coconut lagoon guests which includes local food and continental food. I liked the starters they used to provide along with the dinner. Each and every item were so delicious.

The food at EttuKettu was absolutely delicious, the Alleppy Fish curry with appams and Chefs surprise is a must-try.

This restaurant in coconut lagoon is too good for breakfast lunch nd dinner. Every day at 7.30pm there is dance performance which is very interesting to see. And the food, ambience, staff all are fantastic.

We visited Ettukettu for lunch because we had heard great things about the Kumarakom Lake Resort and also Ettukettu. The buffet had good variety but the quality of food was just average. Nothing jumped out as amazing or anything to write home about, especially for...the price you pay ~ Rs 1500/pp. The service was great, with the staff being delighted to answer all our questions and willing to make small customizations to items. All in all, if the food was of better quality, wouldn't mind visiting here again.More

It was my father-in-law's 70th birthday and we as a family decided to make lunch special, and (unfortunately) chose Kumarakam Lake Resort. You got to give it, their hospitality is top notch, but, that cannot make up for quality food and timely service. The starters...were good, but where they went off rails was for the main course. Half of us ordered steaks and the others fish, rice and the regulars. We not only had to wait for a long time, but when food finally arrived, the steaks were stale. After gently prodding the manager, service was expedited. When the steaks finally arrived the veggies were fridge-cold. I'd ordered for a medium, one fillet was well done. My point is: if you can't do justice to the food listed on your menu, don't have it on the menu. By this we were tired, fed up to be precise. But all was not over. They gave us a wrong bill. This was my second visit to Kumarakam Lake Resort, the first one almost 10 years back. The standards have come down, way down.More

We stayed at KLR for a few days. The food at their restaurant is amazing. And add to it cultural programs in the evening, it just makes the experience great. Strongly recommend

The Ettukettu Restaurant is quite special: wide choice on the menu, well prepared food, buffet very encompassing of different types of food, stunning view and servers. Be sure to get a table near the edge of the restaurant so that you can enjoy your meal...and conversation with a wonderful view of the water. Menu was full of choices: Indian, International, Asian foods. Fresh fruits, eggs cooked to order, full bar for lunch and dinner. We had multiple meals here and all were most impressive and satisfying.More

We dined at the restaurant last night and loved the food and the attention from our waiter. Alleppey Fish Curry is ’to die for’. Thanks to the chef for proving us the recipe which we’ll definitely make when we return home.
