Food was overtly expensive but just the view, ambience and sitting In the open listening to the waves compensates for it..... Make sure you book a table early coz otherwise​ you may not get a table outside the main dining area... Was disappointed with the lobster...but overall the food was good as expected a nice place for a romantic dinner....But... More

They recommend us this restaurant on Radisson. Service was slow and food was good but highly expensive. Wifi only for hotel guests, they dont care if you are gonna pay 100€ for a lunch that you wont get it. We wont come back, service was not good

We are staying at this resort with Gate 1 tours and decided to have dinner at The Wharf which is literally just a couple hundred meters up from the beach shoreline. Open air vista, incredible menu with grilled options and sauces galore. Our waiter, Chandra Shekhair, was patient in his explainations of the meal options and provided our two dinners... More

I had my lunches here during my stay at Radisson Blu Temple Bay Resort. The catch of the day - Red Snapper, Basa, Pomfret and Jumbo prawns were fresh and nicely prepared by the house chef. The Bar here serves all expected cocktails, mocktails and alcohol varieties. The ambience is just fantastic with the vast ocean in sight while gorging... More

What an incredible evening. Dining under the stars, enjoying jumbo prawns, recently pulled from the sea. Tried something the menu called "elephant foot" root. Incredibly tasty! We later saw them being sold in a market place, and they DO look like elephant foot. It reminded me of taro root. Chef turned it into something amazing! The seafood sampler was stunningly... More

The restaurant is near the beach at the Radisson. Very nice atmosphere, dining inside or out. We had giant prawns, lobster, chicken and fish, and it was all very delicious for a quite reasonable price. Excellent value for the money.

I very rarely rate anything 5 stars, but this place totally deserves it. We ate there on our recent 3 weeks in India and it was definitely our best meal. I had the whole grilled fish and it was just delicious: fresh and perfectly prepared. All side dishes were also wonderful and the ambiance-like a beach side place- was great.... More
