Pizza at Kovalam

Enjoyed the pizza and also the murals/wall paintings in this cafe. The service is very good and prices not too heavy on the wallet. Enjoyed the view from the cafe and the food/Pizza was made to order which was also good. Sadly the place is not that spacious and by evening the entrance is blocked by... read more

By all means come for convivial atmosphere, good music, perhaps the fish - but on the strength of our experience, not the pizza. The base was like a thin crisp bread and the topping was dry and tasteless. Our fault for not sticking with the local food, a lesson learned.

Authentic, thin crust pizza with a range of toppings - loved it. Also had veg spring rolls to start which were delicious - nice crispy batter and packed with veg. The staff were good fun and very efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Location wise the restaurant is ok, the food was not great and seems the outlet is for foreign and seasonal guests. The service was not bad

We enjoyed our meals here. Went twice, and the second time we were invaded by small flies that the staff 'smoked' out. It put us off going again although apparently if you go well after sunset the fly invasion is all over. We suspect that are breeding in the canvass roof of the restaurant.

Worst worst worst dish I had since a long time in a restaurant. This "spaghetti alla putanesca" is actually big noodles too much cooked with campbell soup and one green olive cut in 10 pieces. Horrible. Couldn't even eat it... And the cost for India is very high! Don't go.

The restaurant is overpriced and has woest service ever. Qe were made to wait dor 1 hour after ordering and then we got just curries. Chapaties came 20 minutes after. Food was below average. Arrabiatta sphagetti was just boiled noodles tossed in tomato pure, no flavours

They are not at all interested in serving indian customers and would anytime prefer only foreigners to come it. The service is very slow and food was ok. Location and ambiance are good but the attitude takes everything away.
