We ate dinner here on our last night in Varkala, restaurant is quite well laid out and has a very good organised kitchen. Yes it is a little pricier than other places near by but you do get what you pay for and in our case we tasted the best grilled sea food in quite a while!

I'd recommend you try the garlic Tiger prawns which were finger licking good, very fleshy and cooked to perfection. Cocktails were affordable but nothing to write home about, place has a nice vibe in the evenings and in general staff were quite friendly and very efficient. There is no shortage of places to eat in Varkala but not all deliver same quality of food and service. You can rest assure Cafe del Mar will most likely be a good choice

Even though we visited sort of 'off season', the Cafe del Mar was full every evening. The reason was not hard to find. Food, service, ambiance and PRICES were exceptional'

The menu was extensive and all of it was actually available!

Beer was served in large coffee type mugs from bottles wrapped in newspaper...the waiter explained the reason for this unusual protocol!

definitely a place to spend an evening.

Creative coffees (try the mint mocha, you will NOT be disappointed), big servings of just about any dish and friendly staff. Cafe Del Mar is probably the most popular restaurant on the strip so be prepared to wait. But with such lovely views and so many people to chat to, it's likely you probably won't even notice the wait. Not a bad place!

Amazing food, good value, highly recommended. The meat seemed to be safe and the portions are very big. Great lunches too, we ate here twice!
