Good food, fine service

Went to Leo's several times for snacks or a late lunch. Nazir, one of the waiters, was just so helpful and has a really charming manner. The fruit juices are lovely and I loved my banana pancakes and my partner Simon became addicted to their pineapple fritters. The prices were reasonable, service... read more

Pathetic food.. We tried Pizza and tea here. I cant recollect the other items. Both of them were simply aweful and disgusting. Please dont go to this hotel. On top of that the waiter shall add 5% Service charge by himself. i had to ask him to remove it from my bill.

This restaurant has been almost empty for the past month, but they seem to be trying to maintain their usual menu, without a lot of interest from the public. It is out of season, but other restaurants seem to be doing better.

Have been visiting this restaurant over several years and we have never been let down by the food or service. It is well worth a visit.

This restaurant benefits from additional russian menu, but as most of the russian visitors are not popular in Kovalam, the restaurant was often found to be closed early for lack of business.

Visited Leo at its very peak - New Year Eve 2014. We liked its ambience, proximity to the beach and an unhindered view of the waves. And as expected, service was fast as the format is neither too large nor too small as to be missed out. We ordered simple North Indian Food: Fried rice, Butter Paneer Masala, veg salad... More

Even in the off season, this restaurant does well and is looking forward to the coming season, when its Russian menu will be back in use, in addition to its normal multi-cuisine.

Right on the beach front boardwalk its one of many restaurants but you always see it with people there - I dont know why its just got an unassuming low key vibe but always people there, I think its because the food is really good - try the tandoori fish.
