Description: One of the biggest restaurants on Varkala Cliff. ABBA is the only restaurant on the cliff who has got Certificate of Excellence 6 years in a row. We are famous for our excellent service and high quality food. ABBA Restaurant is located on the cliff with an amazing seawiev. Our customers use to enjoy the sunsets when they enjoy a drink or some early dinner. We have a library where you can exchange books for free and we provide toys for the children so they can play on the big lawn.

“Great service and consistent quality across cuisines on offer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Abba is my favourite restaurant in Varkala. Their staff members are efficient and friendly. The view is great and the atmosphere is always relaxed. I've tried their Nepali, Indian and Israeli dishes and enjoyed them all. I tested out other restaurants along the cliff, but still preferred Abba's food and warm service at the end of the day.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Abba was highly recommended to us but we were very disappointed by the Italian fare we were served. Perhaps this is not the best place for vegetarians in Varkala.

“Its your waterloo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Get there by 6.15 pm in January or February & watch the sun go down & as it is dusking they put out candles which gives it a romantic atmosphere.
I had the aubergine chicken which came with baked potatoes & veg which was excellent & my wife had stuffed chicken also very good.
average price for above average food.

“Fabulous place for watching the sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Loved this little restaurant in Varkala - it proved an excellent spot for an early evening 'aperitivo.' It was always pretty crowded, but the service was great & the momos lovely!
