The best fish curry I have ever eaten. Love the pieces of black tamarind! Great location right on the beach. Great service and reasonably priced too.

I have visited there umpteen times with the recent visit in June. The food is good and the staff are friendly. Good place to have some good food and watch the sunset. Highly recommended.

Around Kovalam and perhaps across the South, drinking alcohol in public is not really the done thing. Enter the Beer and wine parlour, a suitable place where drinking is permitted and a large bottle of Kingfisher premiere 660ml is an affordable 150 IRS.

Avoid if possible. There are many nicer places on the beachfront. The food quality average and overpriced. The serving staff was rude and only seeking international tourist. Domestic tourists ill-treated.
