Not a bad spot for breakfast...large helpings for the price and location was excellent. I have had a better breakfast at other restaurants on the cliff however and most of them have the same view. If you prefer a more indian breakfast then this is not the right place. But if you prefer European food (with an Indian twist obviously)... More

Max and I ate here a number of times during our stay in Varkala and were never disappointed. The food was reliably tasty, fresh and well-prepared. Drinks were great and if you fancy an amber ale after a long hot day doing not a lot btw that can be provided discreetly also. A great place to spend an evening.

If your in Varkala you have to go to Abba. The food is scrumptious with the salads being my favourite, amazing cocktails and great service to boot. I went for a 4 day trip and ended up eating for pretty much every meal. Oh! And they do a decent coffee.. Perfect!

Our favourite resturant in Varkala, offering a delicious variety of cuisines from all over the world. After travelling India for three months we can say with confidence that this is the best western food that we have had. The staff are also fantastic and its located right on the cliff over looking the beach.

Overall good food... More
