The service and value of The Waters Edge was excellent, the food is good but compared to some of the other local restaurants is doesn't quite match up. If your budget is tight and still want good food then look no further. It did appear that this restaurant had more of western feel to its food.

Right on the waters edge. Food is cheap and good. Drink is served in coffee mugs and they can't be seen to supply it. Service quick and simple. Good place to eat for a cheap meal.

We ate here 3 times during a holiday recently, it was our favourite restaurant. The fish is absolutely divine, and cooked to perfection. The prices are very reasonable, many of the dishes at 400 rupees, with no hidden charges like taxes or service charges. It was delightful, eating on the beach and watching the waves, delicious food, excellent service, what... More

A nice range of food. We're told their prawn masala is the best in Kovalam. Sitting upstairs adds something extra.

Ate here several times during our recent visit to kovalam and it never disappointed. The quality and the flavours of the food was fabulous. The staff are all very friendly and will make your meal as mild or as spicy as you ask. A choice of dining inside or by candlelight at 'the waters edge' a great place to dine... More

Despite the somewhat aggressive marketing this restaurant has a better menu, better prices and better service. The view is much better as well. We enjoyed every entree and the banana fritters were great. The sea food was especially good. The service was attentive, but not intrusive.
