“No Abba at Abba, but all else was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Did not eat here, but the place serves a delicious coffee icecream. And for scandinavian travellers it is one of the few opportunities to get Swedish snus in India.

The played no Abba when we were there, which may or may not influence your decision to visit.

Average food. Over priced. Claims to be organic and local produce however we were served canned tuna and bottled (American) salad dressing!

Great Food and value, they do hot it down a bit for the westerners, so just ask for Indian strength and all is good.

“As smooth and timeless as the ABBA, the group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Excellent cuisine located on North Cliff which is Varkala's Park Street.(Calcuttan's will understand!).

Wide ranging menu, all of it available and well cooked.

Exceptional service. The owner/ manager "compted" us some starters because there was a dely in service. Whare do you find that?
