The Crab Club restaurant is located in the Lighthouse Beach, in Kovalam, by the sea border. They are very friendly. They serve both Indian and western food.

Food is average but the waiter is by far the worst waiter I have met in my life: as sympathetic as a prison door. If you don't take the expensive choices on the menu, he looks at you like you are not worth staying there....More

We ate dinner here most nights of our stay in Kovalam. For us, our waiter Das was the highlight - always smiling, very attentive and happy to see us. We had kingfish, barracuda, marlin, calamari - with brinjal, tomato fry, dal and rice.....

Veg Pokhara really exceptional! Veg noodles very good. Fish In butter lemon garlic a disappointment, a little over done! Chips and salad good. Most waiting staff friendly but one old guy a little surly, this is India!!
