Their Kerala fish was brilliant and so were the pancakes. Gets kinda crowded in the evening, so should hurry to get the nice seats!

Seafood here is some of the best in Varkala. We stayed at the resort hotel for 5 nights, and had most of our meals here after checking out the other restaurants. The breakfast is also great- a HUGE fruit salad and curd for a fair price. We got the know the staff who were so friendly and nice. Also great... More

we had our lunch and dinner at this restaurant. The 1st floor provides a great view of the ocean. The varied menu gives you many options to choose from, and not to mention the cooking is great as well.

We visited Clafouti for lunch and it was decent, we sat on the first floor. You dont have a very good view as there parapet fence they have created is a tad bit high. The food was decent little bland for my taste. All in all a decent experience, nothing great to write about nor many complaints.

Huge portions of super fresh seafood- cooked tandoori or keralan style- delicious. Try the blue marlin tandoori if you get the chance

Enjoyed an excellent treat of crabs. First about the service, it was quick, the fish counter staff was helpful and suggestions were good. The crabs prepared with garlic was nicely cooked. Enjoyed it with the chilled beer.

Nice food, nice ambience. Staff could be a bit more focussed, all seem to have a lot to do. They are willing to make necessary changes in cooking to suit the customer.

I cannot stress enough how incredible this restaurant is! We have traveled to Varkala twice and eaten at Clafouti for almost every meal. This past weekend we tried a couple other restaurants but none of them compared even in the slightest! The fresh fish options are always the best, try walking down the whole strip and see for yourself. And... More
