Good food and quick service

Requested for non spicy food and got exactly that! Not too many places in Kerala that you can order non spicy food and still have good taste. Recommended for foreigners or someone who prefers less spicy food.

Had a great night of seafood and beer, with a very helpful waiter. Beautiful fresh Calamari and fried fish for starters then Tiger Prawns and fish in banana leaves for main. We all had beer in china mugs to go with the food. Very reasonably priced at 6000 rupees for 4 adults & 4 children.

The kingfisher restaurant is too good the restaurant people are really friendly & they will change the menu & the dish to our preferences. the food is too good, the restauranteur will guide us in choosing a fish & he will suggest a dish with the selected food. the food isn’t too expensive comparing to other restaurants in the beach.

We had a few meals here while in Kovalam and they were all really tasty. We were served by a particularly lovely member of staff who helped us choose our meal and explained the different dishes to us. We had a lovely view over the beach and the wifi was free.

Kingfisher Restaurant, at the corner of Hawa Beach, is a brilliant food destination. The seafood was fresh, and, the Staff were only too happy to ensure that we were 'delighted'!
