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

It is a very clean place, quiet (at the first floor, so out of the noises of Lighthouse beach), the menu is rich and good for a snack or a complete meal, with many western (particularly German) dishes. Staff is very kind. They have good cakes. The cost is appropriate. It remembers me Abba, a good restaurant I love in... More

Good restaurant,with lovely views of beach and sea ,beach front in evening always has something going on to watch.As in all Indian restaurants food is cooked to order ,don't expect your order in 10 minutes,just relax and wait and enjoy the atmosphere.

Looking around in other cafes and eating out twice a day this place was the friendliest and cleanest place in Kovalam Light house Beach. The only criticism we have is the Thai soups didn't have any Thai flavours. Tom yang gung was a tasteless broth with 3 Prawns some canned mushrooms that where not rice mushrooms and coriander. So no... More

Yesterday we ate lunch here. We have had dinner and many lunches here in the past. The food is good but there are lots of places here with good food. What really disappoints is the casual attitude of the staff. It's as if it's an inconvenience to serve the customer. We just get our own menus now. We watched yesterday... More

I asked to look at the lunch menu, and enquired about a dish on the ayurvedic menu which they seemed reluctant to serve me as they said it took 30 min to prepare. I didn't mind waiting and they finally told me to select a seat. The dish was excellent...a pudding of sorts with rice, coconut, ginger, golden raisins and... More
