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

The food is delicious. Variety of Indian, Chinese, British cuisines are available. You can have the excellent view of the Ashtamudi Lake. Don't forget to taste the "Kari Meen" dish here during Lunch.

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? Whilst the senior staff are very helpful and efficient, some of the junior staff could do with more training. When a buffet was provided, the food was never quite... More

The food is amazing and tasty with lot of local and international dishes , the food variety is bit less , the fish curry was mouthwatering and spicy. They made special Dosa for my wife with eggs. We met the director of the hotel his name was Jay who gifted us a nice gift of spice boat.

We stay at the Raviz for the third time in as many years for our annual family holiday and always eat at the Riverside - now known as Lakeside restaurant. We love this restaurant because the food is varied and the staff are just the best. The menu is extensive and will cater for all tastebuds. The chef is happy... More
