This place has great view and food. However, you can feel that the staff is not as sufficient as the average number of guests present.

The most elegant restaurant in Kovalam. great ambience and great food. The cliff top view of the sea from the restaurant is priceless - though it lacks the hustle and bustle of the shacks at the light house beach.

Everyrhing was good, but the much hyped Leela experience, I didn't find anything extra-ordinary. Buffet was good with soft meats and fresh roti and nice fluffy biriyani rice. Desserts was too plain and not many varieties... More
