Most restaurants along the cliff offer a broad range of foods from around the globe, hoping to lure in their fickle foreign customers. This is the first place we tried. We had some north Indian dishes and they were fairly ordinary. The beer comes in a mug. There are better options available. How hard is it to find good Keralan food in this part of the coast?

Very well located with excellent view of the sea from the cliff. We had preparations of prawn and it was sumptuous. Restaurant is having other varieties as well and we found it to be the most frequented one. Staff is courteous

This seems to be where everyone congregates! Food is delicious and quite reasonably priced, and the ambiance is great! They've got their own generator too, which meant the place was still lit during the very frequent power cuts!

The food here is tasty, slightly overpriced, and the view is lovely but the staff leave a lot to be desired, they never speak or smile and when they do they are abrupt and rude, this doesn't do a lot for the atmosphere! Don't go if you are looking for some banter with the staff, you'll be lucky for a wave when you leave!

We loved this place and returned many time over our month in Varkala. It can be very busy as popular but service is good and they unusually sell some very reasonable white wine we had for a birthday treat. Recommended!
