You can't beat Abba. It has the best food, the best staff. The boys are amazing. They know so many people by name and treat everyone with such kindness. They work incredibly hard. Love this place best of all the restaurants in varkala. And I tried all of them :-)

If you are a north indian or are looking out for North Indian food in Kerala. Jump into this place. Seems like only these people know in entire kerala that how to cook North Indian Food. Excellent Quality. Highly recommended. You will find this restaurant always most busy in comparison with others. Also you will have excellent views from here.

Prepare dishes of different countries, always fresh fruit and vegetables! Pleasant atmosphere with views of the ocean, the breeze, candles on the table and calm music. Everybody is very... More
