We enjoyed a Chinese meal here, which was OK but nothing too flavourful. The staff weren't the friendliest, they kept bringing us one dish that they were adamant we'd ordered that we'd never even heard of! The Nutella Naan was delicious, although not in any shape or form authentic!

Eat there a few times and each time there was very delicious dishes with local fish. Banana dessert is awesome. Lite music, perfect ocean view, good service.

The atmosphere is very nice, calm and quiet, with candle lights. I had a lasagne which was not very good, so I suggest you skip the Italian dishes. Cocktails are very nice.

Unfortunately the Varkala cliff top restaurants offer limited local Kerala food - they have 'international' menus offering pizza, pasta, and general Indian dishes. ABBA was one of the best we went too along the cliff top strip. Good fish curry

I think the best rastaurant on a cliff. Very tasty and different dishes(european, indian, nepal etc.), fast service and friendly professional stuff. Very tasty cakes. Good for vegetarians as well.

After reading a lot of reviews on trip advisor we decided to go to this restaurant and based on the reviews we ordered a sizzler, veg cheese momos and Hello to the queen. Sizzler was just ok.. Veg cheese momos were good and nothing special about hello to the queen.. Taste was good but it's just ice-cream with nuts and... More

It's no surprise to find that Abba is the #1 restaurant in Varkala - we absolutely loved the place! We were staying at the Green Palace right behind Abba, arrived late and went there for convenience - and then had virtually every meal there during our six day stay (wish it could have been longer). The menu is extensive, we... More

Throughout our whole travelling experience in India, we didn't find nicer staff or more tastier food. I recommend Abba as a great all round restaurant, they're super accommodating and will do anything to please their customers. The Nepalese guys that work that tables are such genuine people, you could sit there all day talking to them. Such a cool place,... More

We arrived in Varkala 4 days ago and had our breakfast at Abba. Since then, we ate here every single meal. Everything is delicious, from the breakfast to the soups, to the pizza, to the Indian dishes. (Hint: try the "Hello to the Queen") The staff is almost only Nepalese gentlemen, who smile non-stop. Sitting in the first row of... More
