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.

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.

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.
