We stayed at the Hill View Resort, and Café del Mar is their cliff top restaurant in front of the resort. The central location on the North Cliff id fabulous, with great views over the ocean, and you can also watch the world go by on the cliff top path. Our breakfast (included in the room rate) was served here.... More

If you eat launch or dinner, then order the tandoori chicken! The waiter recommended it! It was soooo delicious!!! I also had the caramel frappuccino. It was better then in... More

This Café is a part of Hill View Resort. The food is excellent. I asked them who the Chef was and I realised they have a different Chef for Indian, Continental and Italian cuisines. No doubt the food was so delicious. I tried different foods in my 3 day stay. Grilled chicken, Chilly chicken, Ceasar Salad and French Pepper Steak.... More

had a lovely lunch at Cafe del Mar - stopped for a break from the sun and was pleasantly surprised. Good service, nice and clean, and genuinely the best samasos I had in India. Fresh, stuffed full of veg, delicious pastry. Really reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend!

If you're looking for a break from all the curries and bread, Cafe Del Mar offers just that (as well as the usual local favourites). The Italian we had was lovely and our friends that had the Thai food said it was great also.

This was our favourite cafe in Varkala. It was the only place we didn't have to wait over an hour for our food and the quality was the highest. It is a pleasant setting with friendly staff. When we go back to Varkala at the end of the month, we will be eating here again and again.

We had breakfast here- the view is awesome, and the staff is totally with it. The coffee here is super, as one hopes from the state of Kerala! And they have an extensive menu of espresso based drinks. I had the tofu scramble wrap, and it was cooked to perfection, with crunchy, super fresh veggies and well seasoned tofu. Like... More

Del Mar has managed to keep up with its reputation for serving fresh and sumptuous breakfast. Have visited the place in 2008, 2012 and now in 2017. The cafe has grown considerably and might take a little time to deliver orders but it keeps up with its good service and delicious breakfast.

Super food with wide variety ranging from Italian to Contininental and Indian. For 6 adults, the dinner cost only around ₹2000 which is pretty cheap considering the food and the restaurant location
