“great food with good view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went their the very first day of reaching Varkala & went their everyday thereafter. Enjoyed their food and service on all days. Located on the cliff, the restaurant offers a great selection of continental& Indian cuisine choices.

“great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

The food here never disappointed so highly recommended on that front. Also their coffee is really great so if you are in need of a cup, this would be a great spot. The waiters could've been friendlier, but they did their job just fine.

“Expensive but atleast you get what u paid for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

It is on the higher side but most of the restaurants in varkala(except kerala cafe)over promise and under deliver.Never fall for the happy hours on alcohol and the food also in most places wasnt as good but in this cafe,they know what theyre talking about.You will get exactly what is written in the menu and that is the satisfying factor.The portions were small though.

“Good service but room for (vegan) improvement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

I requested some modified dish since I am vegan and they did it very well. But there could be more vegan dishes, especially with tofu. Coffee is great. Overall a very good experience.
