Average type of place, breezy up stairs terrace which is great. Views are amazing and time goes watching people passing by.

Nice place to chill and wile away some time. Good food. Good prices. Few places that accepted debit card payment at varkala during tough cash times in India. Good view to the beach and much more quaint than lot of the places around the joint. One of the servers was a bit to eccentric. Recommended

We shared some vegetarian Momos which were great. I had Mahi mani grilled with garlic which was well executed, but a smaller portion than I would have liked. Others at the table seemed to be satisfied, though no body was raving with excitement.

A quiet little reasturant on the north cliff mainly offering oriental fare. Taste and quality was OK but not fabulous. The staff could do with a more inviting style

We had ordered for beef and they served us chicken. When we showed them the piece of meat as emphasized how it was white, dry n stringy (clearly overcooked), they told us that it was beef and when beef is cooked it becomes white. Like seriously, have been eating beef all my life. The man went ahead and offered to... More

Bit disappointed with the food here after reading all the good reviews. We ordered Thai Yellow Prawn curry rice, which had just 4-5 tiny prawns and a lot of vegetables. I was almost going to send the curry back, thinking they had made a veg curry instead of prawn. Taste of the curry was also very very average and nothing... More

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
