I spent two nights in Varkala on the cliff and was immediately drawn to Sea Queen because of its outstanding seafood selection and charismatic hawkers/servers. Being a seafood aficionado, as well as someone who's traveled fairly extensively through India and Asia, I know good seafood when I see it. This place is a "no frills" type of establishment, but if... More

We ate here a number of times during our stay in Varkala and were never disappointed. The fish was always excellent...definitely try the tandoori...and the service was tip top. Would recommend to all visitors as a must eat.

The vegetarian dishes I had were very good. Others have told me the seafood is excellent. The service is slow but friendly. It is expensive for the area.

We went to sea queen on new years eve. Was very busy and they only served seafood platters. However if all you want is seafood then this place is definitely one of the better restaurants and was good quality. recommended

Visited last night, and planning to go back tomorrow. Ordered a seafood platter for two, which included tiger prawns, calamari, lemon and garlic blue marlin and tandoori butterfish - the whole thing was delicious. Even got to watch the guy cook the naan and fish in the tandoor - highly recommended if you are in Varkala.

Fabulous fish, & a great view. Do try the Marlin, tandoori style - perfect. We went there several times, & never paid more than 300 rupees, enough for two!

Don't miss this place- it should be on a 'must-visit' list if you are visiting Varkala. And again, once there, don't miss the seafood platter. We were four but could not finish the platter - it had Crab, Prawns, Fish fillets, One full Grilled fish, Squid and more…. you can order it with rice or finger fries and salad.
