Waves Restaurant & German Bakery

International in Kovalam

The burnt-orange balcony, ambient soundtrack, sea views and wide-roaming, well-executed menu keep Waves (atop Beach Hotel) busy with foreigners. It doubles as the German Bakery, a great spot for breakfast with fresh bread, croissants, pastries and French press coffee, while dinner turns up Thai curries, German sausages, Indian snacks, pizza, pasta and seafood. There's a small bookshop attached.
