Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Poolside Grill at Taj Coral Reef offers a wide variety of drinks and very good food. It's an amazing experience, sipping your cocktail, Maragarita was my favourite, and looking and green and blue ocean.

The pizza and crispy chicken dimsums are notable one. The rest of the south american cuisine was worth mentioning.

We ate dinner at this restaurant on most nights we stayed at the resort. Also tried a pizza one afternoon. The restaurant has a great dinner menu for non-vegetarians and I was very impressed by the food quality and taste. The service is great and...if you are on the dinner plan, they gladly swap a desert for a salad, though we did that only for one member in our group. We ordered the Peruvian style sword-fish, which is one of their best dishes in my opinion. Also tried the shrimps and Mexican food one night. Those were very nice as well. Every dish seems to be made to perfection. The ambiance of the restaurant in the night, with the moon overlooking the sea and the gentle breeze complimenting the sound of the waves, is truly an experience to die for. I cannot wait to get back!More

We tried the freshly baked Pizza on the very last day of our trip. Though the pizza was super expensive and would back u by some 40 dollars plus taxes but was super in taste and enough for 2 . We also had a Mexican...dinner on one of the nights during our stay at Taj Vivanta and surprisingly there were numerous choices for vegetarians. The food was super awesome in taste as well as presentation.More

A lovely restaurant at Vivanta. You have to book in advance. The food is excellent, so too the service. The restaurant overlooks the lagoon and the pool. Fish dishes were wonderful.

Though we were quite happy with the other restaurant on the island, the staff ensured us we should have at least one meal at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It was a candlelight dinner with the fresh seafood. Absolutely delicious and very romantic.
