Something not quite right here.

There seems to be some sort of odd atmosphere here. Maybe they have bad jins about.? They have a good spot right on the beach great for stopping off and people watching. This is apparently a hotel so there is staff movement between both hotel and public use. Food is not so special. Better as a... read more

Had a lunch there. It was call biriyani but tasteless. Couldn't taste salt but it was too oily and tasted bad. I complained and returned the food.. yet they not only charged for the dish but also put service tax.. i have tried most restaurants at that stretch. This one is not the cheapest but also the worst in terms... More

Excellent service and good food right on the beach in Kovalam. I stopped there with my family while visiting in Kovalam. The wait staff were very helpful in getting us properly rehydrated on a very hot day!!

Had a few snacks and meals in here. An ok place but towards the end of the season they started getting too pushy in trying to get me to eat in here. So much that in the end I made a point of deliberately eating elsewhere.

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 was prompt and we never had an upset... 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.
