We enjoyed a lavish spread of Christmas lunch at this fantastic restaurant overlooking the backwaters of Ashtamudi lake. The food is exquisite and ranges from Keralan, Continental and Chinese menus.

First, this restaurant is in the Ravy's hotel, on the water. The map is misleading! Careful!!! So, Kerala being (almost) dry, we got caught off guard, assuming the best Hotel in town would have the licence, but no! So...my wife has to listen to me sober, and,...yes,...i had to listen too :-) Overall, ok food, nice staff but not always... More

I ate breakfast here every morning during my stay and it was ok. There is an egg cooking station, breads, fruits, traditional Indian breakfast foods, juices, cereals, yogurts, etc.... Nothing is knock-your-socks-off delicious. It is a buffet. It will do while you stay here.

Ate about 25 meals here and enjoyed almost all. Criticism first: How can a 5* hotel run out of house wine so that it isn't possible to buy a single glass?
