Go for the View

We ended up visiting this place almost everyday simply for the view. The food is nothing great to write about but the view is superb. Watching the sunset with cold beer was a delightful experience. Although I recommend the masala peanuts which was great, the dinner was a disappointment. We did not... read 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

Cafe Italiano is the best place of the cliff from my point of view. It is the only place where you can eat real italian pasta, lasagna or pizza. If you eat vegetarian, they do the best salads (large, fresh, nicely cut and do not have 50% onions as everywhere else). Staff is friendly and food is safe and clean.... More

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

As it is this restaurant is at the top of the cliff..to add to it it has a rooftop seating! Had infact gone there for a quick bite and ended up extending my schedule without any regrets. The food was just about right, not great but not bad at all. BUT the rooftop view stole the show for me. Next... More
