This has been our favourite for years in run. The food used to be better since their excellent tandoori chef has left the restaurang. But that does no stop us. Leo is perfectly located, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed and now with the new toilet even that part of the visit is great. Been going on for years, and... More

We had dinner here twice. The tiger shrimps were the best we tasted in Kerala. Leo's prices are lower than the competition. This is really a most recommendable restaurant.

Visited this restaurant a few times during my stay. They gave me a good price for King prawn for my lunch. Was able to have a nice cold beer when I left the beach. Lovely atmosphere and relaxed service. It's a shame they charge for Wi-Fi butit's still very cheap for what it is

Bright colours, nice fish-heavy menu, and towels on each chair that encourage you to order food, hop into the sea, come back and eat your main course, hop into the sea, come back for dessert, hop into the sea, get back for milk-shakes,... you get the picture. The staff was friendly and our kids had a great time. The food... More

This restaurant is on the beach front. We lunched at Leo's a few times and all food served was delicious and the service friendly and helpful. Great on a budget too. We would recommend.

Its bang on the beach, and bit expensive as compared to others near by yet the food was not that good. Just happen to glance in the kitchen with the cook making our dish in all sweaty condition, it made the experience worse. Surprisingly the bill included service tax with no mention of any TIN or PAN number at all.

Although open at most times of the year, the menu is much the same and you need to eat quickly because the food is normally served on cold plates. The place is a bit tired looking now and could do with refurbishment.

Everyday Evening you can find every restaurant keeps fresh fishes wrapped in ice, to tempt your taste buds. Had Tiger Prawns, 10 pieces for 700. YOu need to negotiate hard and get right price. Taste wiase, this is best among other 4 restaurants I have tried food during my 3 day vist.
