“Top place in a top location”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Having tried a few restaurants in Varkala the Marine Palace definitely comes out top as it has a great combination of good food at very reasonable prices and a really nice place in a great location right down on the beach.
I would definitely recommend you try it if you are staying in Varkala or passing through

“Toilet best thing about this place”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We arrived early in the evening looking for a meal. We seated ourselves.
During our meal we found that we were being bitten by mosquitos. when the bill came w found that the price of what we had ordered had jumped 400rs each. we queried this and to our amazement the waiters shouted at us! two of them. both claiming to be the manager and angrily denouncing us as having been aware of how they price their food. I looked for a manager asking other waiters for one but none could be found. if you like abuse, mosquitos and long waits for food and price hikes this is the place for you. Otherwise there are plenty of other choices.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stumbled upon Varkala Marine Palace one day and have returned to it for lunch and dinner every day thereafter. The "fish in a leaf", brinjal masala (order a roti to eat it with), and garlic salt barracuda are our favorite dishes there. Very friendly staff remembered our "usuals". Upper deck is a nice retreat from mid-day heat. Expect to wait 30min to an hour for your meal, that's just how things are done in Varkala.

“Lovely view and right on the beach”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

One of the places that has been consistently good on our many visits to Varkala. Have never stayed at their hotel, but looks nice.
Get a table in the shade and just watch the world passing by. Specially the food from their tandoor oven is fab. Staff is friendly and bathrooms super clean. If youre having the munchies then do try Hello to the queen, enough for 2 people. The restaurant is right on the beach and good for spotting dolphins late in the day.
