Based on the comment written on the "guide du routard" we tried the tibetan momos over there. Unfortunately they were not good . I assume that they are frozen and not made freshly... Also, waiters are not really concerned and do the minimum. No need to go there, you can find better in Varkala...

Situated centrally on north cliff front.It consists of 2 floors both light,airy & spacious.food is of similar quality to most decent restaurants on the front.Kitchen is on open view to public & very clean.Busy,but plenty of helpful staff & lots of tables so,no waiting & turnover means food is fresh.

The rooms here are old, you can only paint a turd so many times. The mattress was thin and hard, the pillows were competing for thinness and hardness against the mattress... if you've slept on the floor all your life these beds are awesome. I'm sick of places saying they have wifi, just because a bar on a computer or... More

Had the best palak paneer here, my friends also enjoyed their meals. Service was friendly and prompt but not rushed and I would definitely recommend eating here

Cleanest looking place on the cliff top with a permanent looking structure and clean wooded floors. The fence outside is the only safe fence on the dangerous cliff top. Had a few meals there - all good. Popular place which was recommended to us.

Food is reasonable, the service is friendly. We ate here a few times and although it's not the best food in town it's certainly not the worst. We visited more then once which must mean it's worth a try. The upstairs up restaurant has a good view.

The food here was very good,great staff,nice decor etc etc but i also ate in other restaurants in Varkala about 35% cheaper and the same good food.I think your paying for decor etc as the food is the exact same in other restaurants...they need to add something different to reflect the price of food and drinks.

Just called here for a lunchtime snack. The place is clean and fresh and modern with lovely views out over the Arabian Sea. The restaurant was fairly quiet, and given the number of staff general service could have been quicker. The real let down however was the food. We had a club sandwich which was unremarkable and pasta that was... More
