We ate here for dinner on our last night in kovalam and went with the waiters recommendations of fish kadai with veg sizzler, we also ordered a couple of sides like roti and paneer and quite honestly could not fault a thing. In fact this was the best evening meal we had during our entire stay in kovalam. Will definitely... More

Didn't feel like one of the better eating options. Red snapper was wonderful, the accompanying chips less so.

Minestrone tasted of nothing but black pepper, dahl tasted of nothing but salt. It was as though the chef was compensating for otherwise tasteless food. Chappatti not properly cooked on one side. Ater a slight hesitation we were quoted Rs150 for a certain 'off menu' beverage, then it appeared on the bill as Rs180 - he'd forgotten that we'd checked... More

On our first night on the light house beach we went for some snacks and beer to this restaurant. This is one of the last one away from the light house beach. We ordered a Calamari Fry and it was not cleaned properly with lot of sand in it. We never went back to the place again. Not recommended.

My wife and I recently had our lunch here after a nice stroll down lighthouse beach. It is a great spot to just sit back with a nice beer (sorry cup of tea ha ha) and watch the world go by. We had a lovely light snack of chicken and fish which were all freshly made and to an excellent... More

Since we stay very nearby to this restaurant and had eaten there and thought it was just ok for the price.. Then a group of friends wanted to try this restaurant so we agreed to return to Garzia's hoping it would be a bit better the second time. It was worse. They had changed the menu's and the prices were... More

Scruffy restaurant, but directly facing the sea and serving fish that is freshly caught and cooked after you order.

We spent two nights in Kovalam and we were at this restaurant once. The restaurant s located on the shore of Lighthouse beach in Kovalam. At first we were not sure about this restaurant as the look from outside was not very glamorous. They didn’t have nice tablecloth and the waiters were not wearing posh clothes. However we thought about... More

Only ate here once towards the end of our stay and wished we had tried it earlier. My wife had a delicious piece of marlin and I thoroughly enjoyed the chicken malabar.

The resturant was always the most quiet of all the resturants in kovalam. Decided to give it a go. Service was nice and food OK. Didnt feel relaxed as other resturants as the staff were trying to hard to please.
