This is the 3rd year that we come here to the GreenPalace Hotel and eat everyday in the Abba restaurant. We are specially happy with the good food and the friendly devoted and excellent service. You don't find more devoted people in the whole place as these young people, mostly coming from Nepal. After 5 weeks we are still welcomed... More

The food is very tasty and they have a very good cocktail menu (many of the restaurants nearby don't serve alcohol, so this place is great)

We had two meals at Abba - the first one was really fantastic. We ate tandoori chicken and naan and it was one of the best tandoori chicken dishes I've ever eaten. The service was very action packed, all the waiter running around like crazy and the chefs incessantly ringing little bells to let the waiters know when the food... More

We ordered grilled chicken, but it didn't look like a grilled one instead it was more like a boiled version! :-/ Tried lasagne, which was not up to the mark and Pasta was okay . Overall, service was really good, but not so impressed with the food.

Friendly, lively restaurant at Varkala Cliff. LThe food was amazing; great breakfasts and lunches and the best seafood in the evenings. We stayed at the hotel attached to the restaurant and watched the seafood  (including blue marlin) brought in daily.

Decent clean open air cafe, with a wide breakfast choice. Helpings were large for the price. Two negative points.......the croissants were VERY heavy, and the white coffee exceptionally sweet (maybe they use sweetened milk?).

During our recent trip to Varkala we ate breakfast here every day. The ABC (apple, beetroot and carrot) juice, muesli with fruit yogurt and honey and a cappuccino all absolutely delicious. Also had lunch here one day of halloumi salad. Yum

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.
