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.

I liked Leo's because the staff were friendly. The menu is very similar to other Indian restaurant s in the area. The toilets however did tend to let this place down. Round the back and not very clean, but in my travels through India I have found this to be a common theme.

We have been there last night and ordered fish byriani, fish malabari and chicken tikka. The food is good, but in my opinion a bit under average compared to other restaurants in kovalam. The service is very slow so be patience.

We went to this restaurant after reading the good reviews but we were not completely satisfied. Food quality is average and the price is comparable with better restaurant. Location is good because directly facing the beach. Service is very slow.
