“Awful/Terrible/bad service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

To keep it short don't bother! Food was bad, service even worse!

They offered cocktails (underhand) we ordered 2 vodkas and they served us cheap rum, when we complained they not only refused to change the drinks, they insisted it was vodka and that we had to pay for them - that on top of serving us cold calamari which was half the portion we had agreed on with the sales man on the fish desk...staff then proceeded to be offensive when complaints were made!

Annnnnnd the toilets are filthy...

I'm just hoping I don't wake up I'll in the morning!

“Friendly, good-priced and reasonable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Felt the need to do this review after seeing so many bad ones. Sure I can't rave about this being the best place in the world but I have been staying in the hotel rooms right next to it so have been in and out a little. Have not ever seen any of this 2-4-1 cocktail offers other people have mentioned although they do sometimes offer people one free beer and I see them bring it as people sit at their table, personally I've not really been drinking though. Had breakfast, lunch and dinner here over different days so certainly haven't been put off by anything.

Prices are pretty reasonable, food has mostly been fairly good, staff have been friendly without being too pushy, nice atmos with a fairly nice view.

“Dishonest manager”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Long story short:
Workers lured us in with false promises and happy hour deals
When we got the bill, they seem to know nothing about it
There are lots of good places in Varkala, don't waste your time on this one.

“Horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Me and my boyfriend entered the restaurant because of a 1+1 cocktail offer, from the waiter outside the restaurant.
We were shocked when we got the bill and found out they took 150 for each cocktail whic was full of ice.
When we approached the manager and the waiter they claimed to know nothing about a 1+1 offer and that the happy hour was allegedly "low price" of the cocktail.

We won't come back here.

We went there two times. We tried a few kinds of fish and prawns. Everything was very tasty! Decent prices. Good service.
