The seafood here is AMAZING. We got to choose our fish from the catches of the day (a huge variety is offered) and the staff was very opened to cooking and seasoning the fish the way we wanted it done! This restaurant gives you a great value for your money, great service and an amazing experience, all of the above... More

My mom came to ask what was that and after her question they began to behave themselves... More

We went here twice. The seafood pasta is very good, but was only warm. Salads were disappointing. They used to be great. Service is OK, but they need to keep pace with other successful places. Chocolate mousse is outstandingly fabulous. Prices are much higher than elsewhere and cannot be justified.

I tried the pasta pesto. The pasta was properly al dente. The pesto tasted like sugar unfortunately. We also had a sandwich, which was avarage.

We ended up at Caffe Italiano after an unsuccessful attempt at finding authentic Indian food in Varkala town rather than the tourist strip. Our table was in a perfect location overlooking the ocean and in a nice dimly lit area. But the two pizzas we ordered - Sicilian and Funghi- were generic. It's a pity because it is a lovely... More

Quite dissappointed with the food. The pasta was undercooked and had no cheese. The service was just about ok

the tandoori items were realy good, but they used oil previously used to fry fish for making chicken fry. That was really bad. But view from top of the restaurant is awesome. I enjoyed hours looking to the arabian see both in evening as wel as in night. The lights come from the fishermens boats in night is very romantic.
