“Good breakfast. Polite and helpful staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We just ate breakfast here and were impressed - greeted by the staff and wished a good morning (sincerely!) on entry, provided with a menu and that today's newspaper immediately, brought a pot of coffee to share rather than the 2 cups we ordered - more coffee and no extra cost - and good, tasty food. The fruit salad was excellent.

“Best place for fresh crab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

Hi

Over the past few days my wife and I have been eating in the crab club, they have live crab which is cooked to your taste and also the tandoori chicken is a delight not being overcooked.

we have eaten along the beach for over seven years and feel we have missed out somewhat by not choosing this restaurant in the past.

I have recommended other restaurants before and as always chef's and waiter's change but for 2012 The Crab club gets my vote.

regards

Ian

“Beware the prawns”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Certainly would never go back. In fairness they did agree the prawns were off and never charged for them.

“Very good restaurant facing the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2011

A had dinner, lunch and breakfast here a lot of tones during our eight days in kovalam, partly because the place is just below the hotel in which a were staying (Adam), but mostly because it almost always had the most fresh fish. We never paid more then 300 rupees for person, eating a small fish, rice, a dessert and tea.
The terrace faces the beach and the ocean and the service is more than acceptable.
