    Beatles: Music & Snacks

    by wrldtravler Written May 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    restaurant by the beach

    Run by a Goan, Beatles is the closest place to a bar on the lighthouse beach. The place tends to play older rock music but it's popular with the toruists and the food is average.
    The Beatles did vist Kovalam in the 1960's, but have no affiliation to the establishment.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza and Beer.

  • Punjabi Dhabha: Vegetarian Delight

    by Reenae Updated Jul 19, 2007

    This is a quiet little Vegetarian restaurant with a super menu and very reasonably priced. It has a small balcony area with some seatings (which get very full and often are reserved). The food is tasty and portions large.

    Favorite Dish: chole-bhature... you have to try this!

    Hotel Neelakanta

    by AcornMan Written Aug 10, 2007

    Hotel Neelakanta has a good restaurant right outside the lobby entrance that serves traditional southern Indian cuisine. The service was a bit slow, but then we had a group of 14 people, so that may have been a factor. Dining is available inside or outside.

    Samudra Sands Restaurant: Great food, Great staff , Great views.

    by loubles Written Feb 3, 2005

    This restaurant is quite informal but the food and staff make dining here a pleasure.
    The restaurant is partly based inside and partly based on the sea wall of samudra beach, the views of the sunset from here are great , as most of the restaurants in kovalam offer fresh seafood I wouldn't say that this one is extra special but it is the attention to detail and the service that makes the samudra sands standout

    Favorite Dish: All the food we ate there was excellent my personal favourite was the Potato/vegetable Mappas -yum yum

    Food on the beach

    by yumiyun Written Feb 20, 2003

    There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Kovalam. Most of them serving similar food though. In my opinion, they are overpriced (in local standards) and if you are craving for "real" Indian food, there are better places elsewhere.

    The good news though is that fishes are almost always fresh since the day's catch is sold on the beach each day.

    Hawah Beach Restaurant: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood

    by wrldtravler Written May 11, 2003
    Restaurant

    Located on the Lighthouse Beach this restaurant is like many others in that it caters to western palettes.
    Right at the entrance is a table with all the fresh catch of the day laid out for you to choose from. Choose what type of seafood (fish, crabs, mussels, shrimp etc), how you'd like it cooked (local curry / tandooried / steamed / grilled) grab a seat and enjoy the view.

    Favorite Dish: Always look at the fish for a while and make sure you choose the freshest (even day old fish needs to be sold), this will make all the difference.
    The Barracuda in curry and Shrimps grilled and basted with a Butter Garlic Sauce.

    kovalam

    Perhaps the best in Decor on the beach. The restaurant is located at a height so try and get tables overlooking the beach. The interiors is done up in a very green manner with beautiful illuminated palms serving as props.

    Favorite Dish: Fusion Cuisine
