Wonderfully cooked and presented dishes. And, of course, superlative Taj service and hospitality. But what really elevates the experience is the setting. Minimalist decor, al fresco on a hillock overlooking the beach, with the sea view and the sea breeze.

We booked a candle-light dinner here during our stay at the hotel and when we walked in, we were a bit dis-appointed to find only 3 direct sea-facing tables. But the staff, Satya and Kalyan, went out of their way to ensure we got our table, midway, as soon as one became available. The Italian food was fantastic and the direct view and feel of the Bay of Bengal at night time was very special. We will love to go there again!

It was really hot and if not for the breeze the ambiance would not have been half an enjoyable.
They were empty except for 2 tables (including ours) on a Saturday night.
the place is really nice- the tables are well laid out and there is a lot of space between them. it is an open air restaurant and there were no table fans as well. so should be avoided if its very hot.
we opted for the table closest to the beach side.

Food -
Starters - Smoked Salmon. it was okish, the salmon is not totally cooked and it does feel a bit raw but was quite flavorful, did remind me a bit of Sushi. the fish meat is served like a kheema (not a steak or fillet) after it is smoked (not cooked entirely).
Prawns in garlic and chilly - they were flavorful and tasty. prawns were fresh and cooked to perfection. its a no frills dish and light on the palette
Mains - chicken in some sauce(that had bacon in it) with fettuccine. this was yummy! the best item i had at the restaurant.
Mocktails- Orange surprise- orange, pineapple juice and sprite
another mocktail made with Coconut water, lime juice and sugar (dont remember the exact name)
Both were okish, actually didnt meet expectations at all
Service -
was prompt and the waiter who served us was well aware of the menu. i found it really good. the waiter kept inquiring about each food item the moment we took a bite.
but my friend didnt appreciate is as much as he felt we were being interrupted.
Rating -
Drinks- 5/10
Food- 8/10
Service- 8/10
VFM- 6/10
not at all but that is expected being a 5 star Taj property
Ambiance- 10 on 10
The Menu on Zomato is the old one - needs to be updated. Most of the old items are not available - my friend asked the server if they still made the dishes they had a few months back but the server said - they have revamped the menu so all the previously listed items would not be available. New menu is really limited, it is just 2 sides.
After dinner you can go and sit by the beach - the property has a private beach. you can sit till around 11.30pm and enjoy the sound of the waves.
