We really enjoyed our evening at sea queen so much we returned there for a second time during our week in Varkala. The fish was fresh and on the display it was so fresh looking, we chose to have a red snapper cooked with lemon, butter and garlic, it was great value and the fish was so tender and beautifully...

We arrived at Sea Queen after a day of surfing and was greeted by a lovely gentleman who the staff called 'Hat Man'. After bringing us our drinks he advised us on what to eat and highly recommended the Keralan spiced prawns which were covered in a delicious crispy batter. We added some rice, a Dahl Makhani and two Nans... More

This place serves a wonderful dessert called the sea queen surprise. We only came here for dessert. Worth it if you're in the mood for a snack.

Right next to the sea cliff, with great selection of fresh seafood. You select the seafood and they prepare the way you want it. Prices include preparation. Recommend giant prawns and snapper. The calamari was just OK since the dough was off. Have an extensive cocktail menu. But I would stay away from anything with "freshly squeezed" fruits. Only one... More

We ordered a fish that they cut it in front of us. When they served it, it was not the same! Finally they accepted and of course, we didn't eat it and didn't pay it. we moved to another restaurant. So, be careful what you order and what they give to you.

Second night to visit this excellent seafood restaurant on North Cliff. Have had the opportunity to visit many of the restaurants along the cliff and this is definitely the best seafood fayre. Golden fry calamari, grilled red snapper and the best swordfish I've ever tasted. Cold adult beverages served in Goa mugs by attentive and pleasant staff. Get to it!
