Although most restaurants appeared much quieter due to it being the end of the tourist season Sanjeevini was the exception . Anyone who has been understands why , the host Shiva is an exceptional host... More

Would highly recommend reserving a table to avoid disappointment. Great spot overlooking the beach. The owner was very friendly and offered suggestions on what to order to suit our tastes. The food was delicious and the beer cold. Really good value for money.

We ate here a couple of times and it was fantastic. It's a little place set back from the beach next door to the KTDC Samudra hotel where we were staying. Highlights were the sear fish pollichathu, marinated in spices wrapped in a banana leaf and cooked in the tandoor. Absolutely delicious. Also the chicken Korai, which I've had in... More

We chanced on this and were very pleased. The seafood was beautifully cooked and the personal service made for a really good evening. This is informal outdoor dining in true Kerala style. A slightly tricky place to find and needs a short walk to reach it. We accessed it first-time from the shore path.

We decided to try a few restaurants in kovalam whilst staying at Niraamaya based on tripadvisor! Sanjeevini was well worth the rickshaw ride as I had the best fish in banana leaf of my trip! Amazing flavours with a different fish used that was really lovely - butter fish? and really lovely subtle flavours in the sauce different to the... More

We came off season so the restaurant was quiet and after a long windy walk down a quiet lane we found this restaurant. A friendly waiter greeted us half way and showed us the fresh daily catch and recommend a good variety of dishes from mild to spicy. Fresh tandoori naans and coconut rice accompanied the dishes. I especially enjoyed... More
