This is a fabled place on the cliff and we were there atleast four times on our short stay. We were there in the evenings and for late dinners. The place has a nice vibe. Lots of friendly staff from Nepal and some fab food. My younger son loved all the cakes so much that he wanted me to rate... More

Abba is easily the best place to eat and relax on the Varkala cliffs. The staff are friendly and welcoming and are not pushy like some of the other restaurants. All the dishes we tried over an 8-day period were great; and after eating it's a nice place to relax with a cup of coffee, a view across the Arabian... More

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 :-)

We visited Abba restaurant a couple of times just before it closed for the monsoon. They were very eager and attentive to get us into the restaurant and took our order quickly. That's as good as it got. After our order was taken we waited ages for our food. The staff were no longer friendly and too busy to give... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and is always busy, I really enjoyed stopping here for some lunch with a view, but the evening meal I had here was quite bland, I feel as though the flavours have been subdued for the European palette, it's a good option of you need a break from the fragrant food available but it's...

So i decided to go and i got one of the best breakfasts i ate since a long time. Perfect service, tasty meals, coffee which... More
