We had booked a table on-line and informed the restaurant that we were celebrating a special occasion. Since this was located in a Taj property, we had great expectations.
When we arrived they had a beautiful table set up for us with flowers and candles.
We ordered the tasting menu and it was good but nothing special and the service was awful. The restaurant was full of several large tables and very often the waiter just plain forgot about us.
We thought this would be a highlight of Kerala, but sadly it was not and I could sadly not recommend it.

Rice Boat is the flagship restaurant of Taj Vivanta Wellington island. Excellent service friendly staff good ambience and tasty fresh food. It is costly but worth it

Enjoying the experience of sitting in a typical houseboat and enjoying the Kerala cuisine is an experience to dine here. Even though pricey it is worth an experience. The food is authentic and staff very polite and courteous eager to serve you with a smile and recommendations.

We celebrated our 8th Anniversary at Rice Boat and had a great time devouring exquisite Kerala seafood and other traditional dishes. This restaurant is inside Vivanta by Taj (legacy Taj Malabar).
