Nice food helpful staff

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

I don't know how they do it, but even the simplest food in this restaurant tastes like straight from the heaven. I have eaten in a lot of different restaurants in India, but this is one of the best absolutely. We stayed in Varkala for 5 days and what we did? Didn't eat anywhere else even once. Sounds funny but... More

We had only 5 nights in Varkala and ate 3 of our dinners here! Usually I prefer to try different places, but it was THAT good! They have a great choice for all tastes, but their fish and seafood is really great and the preparation delicious. Above all, the service is very nice. Enjoy!

This was the only restaurant that I visited on the cliff with staff that actually seemed to give a damn about your experience and the food you were eating. You may not care about this as long as the food is good but it matters to me. Great seafood dishes, we loved the Calamari, both fried and cooked in garlic... More

I drove to varkala for doing paragliding and visited clafouti resort for having some snacks. Had really amazing chicken penne pasta in white sauce and enjoyed the sunset over a bottle of beer. It is a must try place in Varkala cliff.
