We loved this place and the gentleman that owns it. The food is delicious and the staff excellent. It has a perfect view of the sunsets, that are breath taking… Also, he has, on a property owned by his grandparents, begun an organic farm…which is exceptional for this area and not easy to do…and uses as much of the produce...

We strolled past after eating on our first night and saw the fish skewers hung up ready for the barbie...could not believe the amount of meat on them! Even more shocked to find out it was 250R when sided with chips and salad! Vowed to go the following night...so glad we did! 250R is cheap (but as backpackers it is... More

Most of the restaurants along the cliff have displays of fish laid out in the evenings, but on several occasions, Caffe Italiano had offerings at lower prices than elsewhere, and we were very pleased with both quality and quantity every time we ate there.

Probably the best restaurant in Varkala. When ordering mixed seafood we got, among a lot of good stuff, fresh tunafish. Superb!

It was great meal we had here. The fresh fish cooked in tandoori oven was juicy, aromatic as well as rightly spiced. Service was up to the mark. Defenitly worth to try.

Bobby was absolutely lovely. He was a gentleman every step of the way. The food was exquisite and made our palettes salivate. I'm a vegetarian and devoured the spinach ravioli. Despite my best attempts at Ashtanga yoga I couldn't resist the delicious temptations this restaurant had to offer. May I add the sunset melts your heart every evening. How truly... More

Lunch here was great!!! The pizza is a must try and it's the first thin crust I have had here. Pizza was great too. The spinach and cheese was wonderful!
