This used to be our faved place on the Lighthouse beach. But something has gone wrong, the service is not so friendly anymore and the food quality has lowered. Pity, since we have used it for years. Tandoori was not good.

popular restaurant on Kovalam beach. Locally caught seafood on a daily basis. Staff are very friendly and very efficient. Cheap dinner and beach side location, hearing the waves as you dine is fantastic.

I had breakfast here and the fishermen were working that end of the beach which was great. I also went for dinner and had a good reasonable priced meal. The staff were very nice.
