Visited twice , in a five day stay, for all of the reasons mentioned above in the review title. Tasty food, large portions and value for money. Unparalleled view of the ocean . Visited this place based on trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed

When my friend suggested to visit Varkala Cliff, I never expected such a lovely evening. We reached there at about at 5pm. We parked and walked towards the restaurant, in between took short breaks for capturing the beauty of the sea. The breeze added more beauty to the evening. Later when sun was about to set, we went to the... More

Pretty decent for budget stay in the hostel type room. The individual rooms are better but not exactly VFM. Offseason is best time to get it for cheaper rates (though kids would be bored). The restaurant is outsourced but accommodating to our taste requests. Being a cliff resort, the view is perfect but the beach is a good walk away.

The food was average. They did not have much options in desserts. This place offers a great view of the sea. Visit during the evening time. The ambience is just perfect then, with candles at you table and an uninterrupted view of the Arabian sea.

We ate here on the last night of our week in Varkala. Chose our fish from counter with a waiter who was refreshingly non pushy about his catch! Suggested a way to cook it and it was perfect. Probably the best of the places we tried along the cliff.

i liked the food. Best place to eat. Menu is good. I had Lasagne and it was delicious. Even in the afternoon when most of the restaurants are closed they serve all the menu.
