Great food

Had prawns, octopus and King fish platter, all fresh and no messing around with the price which was reasonable. Great table at the front with cool breeze. Will be going back again

One thing unique about Varkala is the display of fresh and colourful fish of various variety and sizes in front of many restaurants. The colour and smell certainly draws the seafood lovers invariably. Similar was the case with Sea Queen restaurant at the North Cliff in Varkala. Although none of us was keen for seafood, a chirpy waiter, named Surya,... More

We got lured in by the great display of fresh fish and it was definitely fresh. We agreed a sensible price and went for a few different styles of having it all cooked (at their suggestion I might add). So we waited with our fairly lousy cocktails. The food arrived courtesy of our friendly waiter but we weren't impressed. Rather... More

The night we ate here it seemed understaffed. I know India. Service is slow but this was tooooo slow. The food was average. The 'healthy' friend veg dish I had was cooked into much buttery which was very sickly.

Great view, breezy, service was OK. Food was OK. Price was more than in kochi. They had kathadkali dancers. Interesting show. We didn't like how the crab was prepared or the tuna. So the seafood experience was a letdown. The salad and chips were good though.

We have been changing places to eat every day till we found Sea Queen. Great sea food and the best staff. Very friendly and helpful people. Surya, Siraj and Aju - very friendly people. If you get there order a seafood basket - tandoori fish, prawns, clams, squids. Great dish. We had many other dishes as well and all were... More

The food here was good, we ate paneer Tofu and a Burger and it was everything really tasty. The Service was Really friendly but we had a long waiting time. The view from the Balkony is simply stunning. The Toilet looked a bit scary and even the Balkony wasnt really maintained good

Delicious dosa. Always really tasty. Friendly service and great value. Beautiful view and the perfect place to sit with a drink to just watch the sunset

By far the best sea food we had in Varkala! The sea food basket was delicious, the fish really fresh. Try the lemon butter garlic prawns, fish masala, the banana leaf fish! Best butter nan, too. Low prices and really friendly staff.

We had ordered grilled Red snapper. They served messy fish with garlic sauce. When asked them to make it little more crispy, they used dosa tawa for that. Very disappointed with the taste and service. Given one star because no option of 0 star.
