There are lots of restaurants to chose along the clifftop and Abba is a great one, with a fantastic variety of cuisines, tasty food and a lovely atmosphere. Really enjoyed food here, went back twice as so nice.

Came here with a group of 9 others for breakfast. Food was good, service attentive. Came another time for wifi, desert, and coffee, and that, too, was good.

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. Our customers use to enjoy the sunsets when they enjoy a drink or some early dinner. We have a library where you can exchange books for free and we provide toys for the children so they can play on the big lawn.
