Favourite Restaurant in Varkala

Loved this place so much we kept coming back. Great food and service and a lovely sunset view from every seat in the house. Very resonably priced too. Staff are lovely and the service is quick and efficient.

All restaurants sell the same Fish, crab and prawns in the evenings in front of their restaurant. Guests select them and they cook for guests at a price. We were attracted to Clafouti restaurant due to the beautiful wood crafted entrance of Clafouti hotel. But the restaurant, leased out by the hotel, was a sure disppointment. Food was just average...

We tried different restaurants in the beginning of our stay on Varkala North Cliff, then we luckily came here and continued eating only in this place. There are reasons for this: they serve the best breakfasts at cheaper prices in this area. Also, it's possible to have some european food here (for those, who doesn't like savoury Indian dishes all... More

We ordered milkshakes and a cheese cake. One bite of the cake proved it to be rancid, so we sent it back and asked for a fresh one. The waiter then came back only to tell us that there were no fresh cakes left (maybe time to bake new ones and throw the rancid ones out?). The same goes for... More

Trying to share the wealth and sample more eateries, I sat down at Clafouti, a nice, large, open, modern restaurant sitting on cliff's edge overlooking the sea in the middle of "the strip" in Varkala Beach. I was approached rather quickly and placed my usual breakfast order, a pot of milk coffee and peanut butter toast with sliced banana. About... More

Enjoyed the view and ambiance here. Excellent dal makhani. Service was good but not overbearing. Breakfast was ok, we recommend not ordering the bacon (it was weird, lol)

This was in our top 2 fave restaurants during our recent 9 night stay in Varkala - the other one was Little Tibet. The food was very good, prices were great value and service was very quick, even when the place was super busy. It's a bit off the main busy drag too overlooking the quieter northern, black beach.
