This is just an absolutely superb place. We stayed in Varkala for 2 weeks in March 2014 and could not find a restaurant that came even remotely close to this one. The food is exceptional, both the western offerings and the Indian dishes. And we had picky kids with us! The prices are the same or lower than other cliff-side places. The staff, mostly Nepalese, are attentive, professional, incredibly friendly and clearly highly trained. The big open kitchen is a modern, stainless steel, open-plan kitchen that you can see is kept at western standards of hygiene (not the case at most places on the cliff- just take a quick peek in most kitchens, but hold your breath before you do...). The place is thoughtfully set up too- power outlets at most tables, free wifi, toys for kids and a grassy area for them to play on, decorated nicely, nice mood music, nice decor, comfy chairs, and of course, million dollar views right onto the ocean. But I think one thing above all illustrated just how great this place is. The night before we left, we went to their cabinet of delicious baked goods to buy some snacks for our 4am deparature by rickshaw the next morning. When they realised why we were buying it, they came up with another plan- they insisted on meeting us in front of the restaurant, at 4 am, to personally hand us a freshly baked bag of baked goods to take with us. Enough said.

Thanks so much Abba- from Scott, Jodie, Jallan and Kaden...

There are many (too many?) eateries along the clifftop walk above the beach in Varkala. I went into this one for a glass of tea on my first day and was impressed enough to return for some meals, including some very tasty breakfasts. It is a very popular place and the staff were very friendly, especially after I had been a couple of times and they recognised me. Affordable prices. Plenty of outdoor and semi-outdoor seating. The display of cakes and pastries looked tempting but I resisted. As with most places here, there was a display of fish and seafood to choose from in the evenings.
