Restaurant on the cliff is worth a visit. Nothing like sitting here in the evening and having your dinner. Try the catch of the day that is displayed. :) A bit expensive for Varkala standards but no complaints.

Clafouti restaurant always has an abundance of fresh seafood to choose from. The view is great and the ambiance relaxing. They do not serve alcohol.

Friendly and attentive front of house staff and great recommendations regarding the fresh seafood they had that day, how to cook etc. Both our seafood dishes were cooked to perfection and really tasty with spice levels tailored to your palate. Impressed with the 100% fruit juice (including Mango!) We went for dinner after sunset however you would definitely have had... More

Very non pulse servers here,they look at you up and down. Don't promote their place in nice sweet way. This is why I say plenty of attitude if you know what I mean here. Like superior,when we are all the same anyway. Food is so so, but service killed it for me. Not my style.

There are some really good spots to eat on the cliffs of Varkala and as this was rated #1 we decided to give it a go. Now the atmosphere isn't the best and they dont serve alcohol but the food makes up for it. My partner had the catch of the day cooked in traditional spices and it was cooked... More

The kitchen here is extremely professional. Every day my breakfast is a masala omelette, chips and vegatable salad, which sets me up powerfully for an active day of swimming, walking, yoga, whatever. The vegetable salad is huge and has the best ingredients in quantity. The omelette is preparred perfectly every time. The chips (French fries) are so flavorful-the potatoes they're... More
