Considering there are so many places along the cliff top to choose from, this was definitely a wise choice. Another beautiful Indian meal. Had Baigan masala (my fave) with jeera rice and butter naan. Great food but maybe the decor and ambience could be a little better, but that is not so important to me.

Varkala was exactly the place I needed: quiet, calm, "shanti" as the Indians say .The days pass with a slow pace, walking and swimming in the beach or wandering around the shops and restaurants. Excellent fresh juices, international cuisine and fresh fish just caught. The cliff at sunset gives wonderful performances, unique colors. Varkala is to visit and stay there... More

We really enjoyed Trattorias during our time in Varkala. It doesn't look the most fancy or inspired but the staff are great and the food is fantastic and very reasonably priced compared to other places along the cliffs. The daal fry and fresh naan bread are a must! Our only problem was the music - we are pretty fussy with... More

We were wandering around the cliff where to eat and we went all the way to the end and heard this cool funky music and saw lots of people were there. So, we have a belief if there are people the food is good. We went in and had our meal there. We just wanted something nice and quick and... More

Amazing views combined with amazing cheap cocktails can't really be beaten. There isn't really a theme to this restaurant but you can have want ever you want. We had the pizza which was very tasty but the crust and base wasn't crispy. Would recommend this place for a few drinks and a snack

We hit this place after recommendation from the staff at the hotel we stayed. The place is located near the Varkala cliff area and like any other joint is a small and cosy place that is noisy depending on the time. The main course we ordered were below average and the seafood that is supposed to be their specialty also... More

This place is the best spot in Varkala of you wish to while away your afternoons to some refreshing beverages and light music. That apart, I had the burger here and it is FANTASTIC! Unlike anything I've tasted before. The fries were absolutely fresh and the mayo was just whipped. I love this place.
