Went there after finding its name in the list of recommended restaurants. The taste of the food was really really bad (had ordered omelette and an omelette sandwich). Cold coffee was good.

There's something about this place...you're up some stairs, off the beach, facing the sea...there's a steady breeze. The menu is unique. It's not cheap but it's elevated in more ways than one. I like the quiet waiter with the auburn hair and sly smile. It's...More

For the architecture, we would have certainly NOT chosen this place, since it looks like a sand colored military bunker complex. Certainly there are other cafes and restaurants around at Lighthouse Beach which are much more pretty. Nevertheless, the view is good and - MOST...More

Overlooking the busy Kovalam beach but a bit above the hustle and bustle. We had good fish but there were also frankfurters on the menu!

The place situated in the Light House beach right by the sea is a delightful place worth a try. The waffles and hot chocolate are made in heaven. One can savor the rich taste of coffee and fresh out of oven cinnamon roles or lemon...More

I normally don't like to give 1 star to any restaurant but this one doesn't deserve anything more than that. Pathetic overpriced tasteless food but the main reason this restaurant is absolutely classless is the blatant racism it exhibits. I was a little hesitant to...More

Review based on my sister's visit to this place. Limited stuff available. Excuse was that it's off season. Normal frankfurters dished out in the name of German sausages. Steeply priced.

Came here early for lunch. Of course it takes a while for the food to come out and it was average. Had the fish fry and grilled prawns. But I liked that they didn't call out for customers and the view of the lighthouse is...More

We booked once as we had a large breakfast group on Boxing Day. However, even though it was one of the busiest days in the year, we noticed that people were still coming in and out on a casual basis. We were the only ones... More
