The best place to sit.

They have a couple of balconies, which hangs just over the sea. If you visit there, do not sit anywhere else other than those balconies. This is the best place to sit. The calamari here is very good. But that is the only thing that tasted good.

It is the place with best view of the ocean on the Varkala cliff. Go have a candle light dinner at the roof top, over 7 pm and you get to have an amazing view of the ocean at night with good quality food. The staff are very friendly. Food is prepared when ordered, which takes some time. But if... More

We had a couple of lovely evenings here while on holiday to Varkala during off season in June 2015. The fish was always fresh and lovingly prepared. The host was knowledgeable and a book lover / poet to boot. If you love a good read, this is the place for you! Cspradeep was charming and incredibly well read, recommending some... More

Great place to chill and sit and watch the ocean. Very good red snapper, best bruschetta in India and fantastic service (look for Pradeep - best waiter ever!) Ice cold Kingfisher doesn't taste better at any other place. Highly recommended!

As other travelers have recommended, go there for the Views. Especially during the heat, its in a very shaded and cool spot. The service is very laid back, but then they dont want to rush things. The food which did arrive was average by Varkala standards but good value for money

Another case of popping in for a morning coffee and ended up visiting often. Sunset views from the upper deck were stunning and perfect place to spend an evening; we took our son and daughter-in-law as soon as they visited us. The food was perfectly acceptable and, like most places in Varkala, excellent value - would recommend asking them what... More
