Nice Place

This place had some amazing food. The brilliant breeze on the first floor of the restaurant overlooking the sea was beautiful. Do try the food at this place once when you are here. It also has some fancy cottages to stay, right on the clifftop.

Lovely position on the cliff top with views out to sea. Good service and outstanding food. We were served beer from bottles wrapped in tea towels, a first for us, but it was fine. Definitely worth a visit.

I tried different places to eat but the quality here always was that bit better than elsewhere. Good Thai noodles but overall I recommend the fish tandooris and the fish curry. Outstanding.

Decidedly to recommend, this restaurant on the cliff, overlooking the never-ending beach of Varkala. Breath-taking view specially at sunset, a great view and fresh breeze at all hours. The ritual of offering the view of the fresh fish of the day, in my occasion a 2-meters blue marlin, was really tempting for an usual vegetarian like me, who in these... More

My mum and I ate here twice when we visited Varkala last month. The selection of seafood (displayed on ice at the front of the restaurant) was very impressive. We tried the Bumphead Parrot Fish, the Tuna and the Pomfret. All of them were equally delicious. The atmosphere is a tad lacking but it is more than compensated by the... More

We went to Clafouti for a pre dinner drink to watch the sunset (which is a lovely thing to do from their upper level) and ended up being stuck here for dinner too as a storm hit. But what a blessing in disguise that was. The food was great -and we especially loved that the tandoori fish we ordered did... More

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.
