Description: Sunset did the best prawns in Varkala, be warned food is cooked fresh to order so service can be a little on the slow side we saw grumpy guests complaining they hadn’t had their food which we thought was unreasonable given they were getting exceptionally fresh food cooked to their requirements in a packed restaurant. We ate here a couple of times thoroughly enjoyed the food and thought the price very reasonable.

There is a very relaxed and good atmosphere in this place. I have been coming to Varkala for a number of years and can say without reservation this is the best place here.... More

We went here to watch the sunset, as the name of the bar suggests, and had nice cold beers and cocktails.

Its the best location in varkala,coz its overlooking the beach and the sunsets actually mindblowing. I visited in the monsoons so the million mosquitos kinda ruined the moment but with a little help from odomos lotion,I was ok.Just had a beer there so cant say nething about the food.

Had a drink here in the afternoon and liked it so much we came back in the evening for dinner. The fresh fish was outstanding particularly my wife's which was cooked in a banana leaf with a coconut masala. Service was efficient and friendly and the meal was reasonably priced. While we were eating there was a thunderstorm and it... More
