They served us some 40 mins later. The prawns were only 35 percent size. We questioned him, he told us the prawns totally shrinks in size after... More

Great little restaurant, awesome view, cold beer, fantastic pizzas (and I go to Italy very often !) Service was slow, but we weren't in a hurry so no issue (if you're in a rush let them know) Highly recommended

I came here with a group of 10 and we had an amazing lunch! We sat on the top floor under a shady tree overlooking the ocean and listening to the waves and it was lovely! Our waiter was really nice and attentive. I liked that he was very honest about the food and drinks. Fruit juices were amazing! I... More

I didn't eat there, only have fabulous fruit juices, and fruits also. You can see the Arabian Sea from the balcony, and take your time. They have also a library, and good music.

We went to cafe Italiano a few days ago. There are many restaurants in varkala which are very similar and thought maybe the name of the restaurant might mean the pasta is ok. Again not expecting the pasta to be comparable as in Europe but I had a seafood pizza which was so undercooked and doughy was awful. I tried... More

Best fresh fish for a good price, prepared in a fantastic tandoori sauce and traditional oven. We ate here every day after trying it once!

One of the best pizzas we tasted, and not only in India. Super crispy, with lots of herbs and cheese. Really worth a try, especially if your Western stomach got tired of curries and all. Interior is beautiful, and beer is served in cool local pottery. On the downside, staff could use some more enthusiasm once the guests are seated... More
