Set on the southern part of the beach near the temple road. Varkala Marine Palace has a great ambience both during the day and at night time. A great spot for watching the daily beach life of the locals and the fisherman repairing and sorting out their nets and boats. The food here is excellent! Good service (can sometimes be a little slow at busy times but that doesn't matter as it's still a lovely place to relax) and friendly staff. They also do rooms and we were lucky enough to get a couple of nights here during our stay, but it gets booked up quickly.

I must say - they have the BEST naans and other breads in town. The alu gobhi was awesome too! Great atmosphere. Just one thing though... you better not be in a hurry. 2 days in a row our lunch took almost 2.5 hours! That is the only reason we didn't come back to this restaurant sadly.

We had two meals here, lunch one day and breakfast the next. The lunch was uninspiring, but since most places have uninspiring breakfast, we ate there again the next day out of convenience. Mistake!
I had a sweet lassi, which tasted off, but I just tried to choke it down. When my girlfriend tasted her curd (yogurt), we realized all their dairy was spoiled. It was disgusting, but the waiter denied that there was anything wrong with their curd. In the end we weren't charged for the curd she sent back, but the staff didn't seem to care about us or the quality of their food.

Ate here on regular basis as staying at Marine Palace. Most meals were good standard especially the seafood spring rolls. Good masala chai. Some good seafood dishes. Good location right on the south beach of Varkala.

Wonderful fresh fish chosen by you and cooked as you want plus masses of other tasty options. Didn't have one bad meal there all holiday. Service slow but not worried by that as it meant it was being freshly cooked and we were in no hurry. Staff very friendly.
