The Sea Queen is not to be missed! Such a gem inside of this quant fishing village. If you want the freshest of fish and the best service- this is the place!

We have eaten here twice now and have been very impressed both times- had the pakora on both visits and it is the best we have had anywhere in Varkala. We are vegetarian so can't speak for the seafood but had curries with rice and chapati on both occasions and both were delicious, very generous portion sizes as well. The... More

Having come to write this review I am surprised to see the other average reviews. We ate here on our second night having been charmed by the front of house waiter the night before. We had beautiful fresh crab masala, jumbo prawns, blue Marlin, fresh chappatis, drinks and a sea view with really friendly staff. A really lovely meal!

The evening we spent at the 'sea queen'. This turned out to be a big disappointent. We entered the restaurant after negotiating a fixed price for a decent fishmeal. The restaurant owner even added two extra prawns, which later turned out to counted 400 roepees each, doubling the bill. Do not eat here. The price/quality ratio is not good!

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
