Watching the sun set from the veranda is amazing, and I would highly recommend grabbing a couple of drinks and doing some star gazing. What I would advise against is getting food here, as it really was overpriced and below par - you're paying for the view. The curry I ordered was watery and tasteless, under-cooked vegetables, the worst I... More

The restaurant has a higher price range than others but is really worth it. Apart from eating and enjoying a great view you can rent books for a low price. The staff is very friendly and WiFi is available.

This is a lovely place with some nice views of the beach. Food is reasonably priced and lovely. Most time the place is crowded so be prepared to wait. Also, the bakery items tend to be made fresh in the morning and thus only limited quantity is made. These tend to get over by evening and so one needs to... More

Lovely views of the beach and smart interior design and decor. I chose a vegetarian Indian meal for dinner which was average - a bit bland. Shame about the rude and unwelcoming staff whose attitude went sour when I asked if I could use their wifi and wouldn't give me the password until after I had ordered - assuming that... More

This cafe is although not very great but still the best option at this beach. I tried omelette and pizza, both were good. But the place is not very clean.

We've been here several times before and we weren't disappointed this time. We'd been looking forward to their Malabar Fruit Flambe all holiday and it was just as good as we'd remember it.

Had breakfast here and left slightly disappointed as the food was average. Coffee was too strong although the orange juice was excellent....

Their bakery good and their non Indian food is probably the best in Kovalam, so if you've had your share of curries this is a very good option. If you're into the south German/Swiss kitchen they prepare their things in a way that would make a Swiss mom proud. Their wide selection of breakfasts and coffee is also worthwhile. Their... More

Like most of Kovalam beach, this place is past it's best. Unlike other establishments it has kept its prices high and its portions small. No denying the coffee is good but we had better in Kovalam (e.g. at the crows nest) for half the price. We had breakfast here and had two tiny bits of toast with butter and honey... More
