Tried the restaurant for first food in varkala, tried food out there. The quantity of prawns compare to rates was quite less, food tasted average. The staff was not friendly even to help you select the food choice. They serve beer, and sea food. On the whole average joint

We made the mistake of picking a restaurant by the number of people sat eating then checking trip advisor after ordering food....oops (we used their wifi). We were travelling with our 2 year old son who wanted spaghetti bolognese. We were assured that it was on the menu and available (not always the case). The meal that arrived contained spaghetti,...

Met a local Brit who said this was good! He must be drinking too much Kingfisher beer as the food was disgusting worse curry pakoras over cooked . Service bad. So After this experience, our plan in places the rest of our month trip was to order a starter and check that out first !

We just ate a meal tonight. So this review is fresh in our memory. The fish in the Biryani was raw. The waiter agreed. The manager upon being told disappeared for 15 minutes and then the waiter came back and asked us again what was wrong? They would not acknowledge our complaint. The rest of the food was OK, nothing... More

Rude and untrained staff. Average food and pathetic service. You have too many options on the cliff to waste your time here.

My gimlet was fine, but girlfriends Mojito was basically not fit for consumption. Service kept pace with Kerala in general, which is to say laid back. But who cares, so are you when visiting here :)

I ordered Kerala fish which was nice as the other places do not have it on the menu often in Keralan style. The downside was the price, the fish was not one the expensive ones, on the menu there is no fixed price for it, so at the end we ended up paying a lot more then what you have... More
