Which are the popular eating joints in Kovalam?

0 people found this answer useful Useful ?Yes

The myriad of shacks and restaurants in Kovalam lining the beach, with each claiming to serve delicious authentic Keralite dishes or other gustatory delights from pan India, choosing one is bound to be quite confusing. But once again we’ve come to your rescue. Read below to find out some better choices amongst the crowds of eating places.

  • The German Bakery
    This is the most popular place for breakfast in Kovalam. There are three things that make this place a hit. Shakes, banana pancakes and great views to go with them. Feel free to indulge in their cakes and other assorted snacks.

  • Beatles
    Enjoy the live music on the beach side with some great exotic dishes. This restaurant was named in the honour of the famous Beatles band who visited Kovalam years back during one of their tours. Go for the grilled burgers and super crumb fried Calamari with a drink of iced tea.

  • Bethel
    A good vegetarian restaurant with cosy open air seating and a friendly service. Great for Keralite, Chinese and North Indian dishes. We recommend going for the local cuisine. You can order some boiled rice or tapioca (Kappa) and Sambar, Thoran and/ or Kaalan to go with it.

    Mains would cost you anywhere from INR 50 to INR 120.

  • Suprabatham

    Suprabatham is another excellent vegetarian fare. Go for the traditional Keralite dishes. Ask the waiter to suggest you the specialities or simply go for the Thali meal to get a taste of the main local dishes.

  • Fusion
    Fusion is a 1st floor restaurant on the beach front with beautiful atmosphere, great seafood and good service. Serves both eastern and western cuisine and sometimes fusion of both. The fish and prawns served on banana leaves are heavenly.

  • 3rd Rock Cafe

    This eating joint is quite popular for sea food, Indian curries and Tandoori dishes. The waiters - Saj, JJ and Jay will go out of their way to help you with anything that you may require and if asked, will always give you some great suggestions for your order. Unlike other restaurants, they never try to sell you the most expensive dishes. You must try out the Tandoori fare available here. The open kitchen allows you to watch your food being prepared as per your liking. And to top it all, the rooftop setting or the beach lounge chairs is amazing. Eating at this restaurant forms an inevitable part of the things to do in Kovalam.

  • Sea Face Dosa Camp
    The restaurant serves vegetarian South-Indian food and their tasty dosas are definitely worth trying. Enjoy with Sambar, chutney and pickles. You can also go for the Uttapams, which is sort of like pizza, but without the cheese.

    Address: Lighthouse Beach
    Kovalam

    India

Also check out the Swiss cafe (for Swiss delicacies) and Kovalam junction (for Chicken fry slathered with a thick red paste). The restaurants operate in a very leisurely way so a 1 hour delay can be quite common. So if the rats in your stomach are putting up a hissy fit, try the fruit salads available on the beaches and streets to tide you over for a while. And lastly, though the restaurants here may not promise you great ambience, they certainly promise you great seafood and fried chicken!
