Shivavilas Palace

near Hampi, Karnataka

A smart, modern kitchen supplies the old-fashioned dining room (it’s not a full-on restaurant), leaving you with the sense that behind the scenes lie glitzy countertops laden with local produce. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner (along with copious amount of tea and coffee) are all available.

Though not an elaborate spread, breakfast is included in the tariff. Expect continental fare, with eggs to order, juice, toast and condiments. Indian options can be served if you ask ahead.

Lunch and dinner are more exciting with a helpful nudge towards trying local dishes like holigae, jowar roti, yene badnekai, shenga chutney, kempu khara and mosaranna. If you are not keen, then stick with the western fare of pastas, a three-plated meal, chicken cutlets, boiled vegetables or even some Chinese.

Room service is available, though it’s more fun to go to the dining room and catch up with other travellers. The limited number of rooms curtails the usual dining hall rush.

The service is attentive but low key – a perfect mix of homeliness and hotel-like geniality.

Unlike other websites, we stay at every property we review. So ask us anything! Our expert staff will help you find the perfect room.


Note that the dining hall here just services residents, so meal orders are taken on a 12-hour pre-order basis, either from the à la carte or the set menu.

There are only a handful of western dishes available: pastas, salads, soups and sandwiches in particular.

Stick to Indian meals to get the best of the chef. The veggies, the chicken curry and the homemade desserts are the best of the bunch.

Dining nearby

Since this is a standalone mansion there are no veritable eating joints close by. The nearest pick would be Mango Tree Restaurant, wedged between the narrow lanes of Hampi behind the ravaged main street leading up to the Virupaksha Temple.
