I stayed in Kovalam for two weeks, and having happened on the Kingfisher, I ate there almost every day for the two weeks. Never had a poor meal, staff were friendly and helpful. Nice place , particularly in the evenings with the cool breeze and sound of the waves Definitely worth checking out.

One of only two restaurants we visited in Kovalam more than once. First visit was a great fish in banana leaf dish overlooking the beach and we vowed to come back again. Friendly staff, great views, good food and clean.

We were shown some lovely fish, such as king prawns etc. When the seafood arrived, we had 2 lobsters,... More

We had to wait almost for an hour before the food was served. And the food that was served after that was almost uneatable. We just left from there.
