Among the long list of restaurants that you see along the line of Varkala cliff, if you are looking for an authentic Kerala style food, this is the place to be. It has the beautiful view like most other restaurants, but the service was amazing, they actually listen and understand your likings. Also the foods are considerably priced and not... More

The food I took was always very good, while my friend had a bit of a "meh" experience, I can tell you that for sure the chicken and the aubergine curries were really good and the cheapest on the menu.

I have ordered swordfish, it was very good prepared and very tasty with ginger lemon butter and the price was unexpected cheap (with salat and rice all together) 250 rupeh. Staff is very kind and giving honest ansver like if the fish is frozen etc.

Fantastic sea food with best service you could ever get. Walked by the restaurant but didn't go in the first place. Checked at restaurants around and went back here. Good prices and old uncle who welcomes you with good smile makes your day.

Traveling in Varkala off-season brings warnings from many of it's own people, not to eat "just anywhere." I'm so glad I found the Sea Queen & went often during the 10 days there. It was my favorite place to eat not only because the food was excellent, but also because being greeted by the happiest, most peaceful man in Varkala... More

I found it difficult finding authentic Kerala (or even Indian) food in Varkala. Often it it made to suit the tourists (not what I personally are looking for). The elderly gentleman who waiter is adorable. Ask him for suggestions or advice. I only dined here on 3 occasions but very pleased every time (ordered Indian). The fruit juices are made... More

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!
