After 2 amazing weeks in Varkala we decided to try a different bar to have a beer. We went to blue moon and we ordered a beer and they served a big glass. When I asked for the rest of my beer they told me that it was everything in the glass, which it's not true, because in all the... More

After one month in Varkala, and trying almost all the places in North Cliff this was the worst experience. I asked for a mango juice and they told me that it was fresh juice, I just got a sip to realise that it was bottle juice, and then when I told them again they said that we weren't in mango... More

I'm travelling with another young British woman and had dinner at Blue Moon two nights ago. We'd noticed the night before that there was a TV playing football at the back of the restaurant and confirmed with one of the staff that they'd be showing Premier League games the following evening. They were very friendly and we looked forward to... More

Ended up spending almost 4 hrs in this place and had a wonderful time.Just at the tip of the cliff with an awesome view and a very relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff and value for money. The chicken sizzler was a highlight of my evening.

We popped in for dinner at Blue Moon on our last night in Varkala. We had a prawn curry (Rs300) and the fish in banana leaf (Rs400). Both meals were served with a generous amount of rice and were enough to satisfy our hunger. The prawn curry was tasty and a bit spicy as requested. The fish in banana leaf... More

Bluemoon Cafe was my favourite place in Varkala to come for a drink after dinner. You can enjoy a great view, the beer is cheap and the owner Vino has a fantastic collection of reggae. The waiting staff are warm and friendly, the seats are comfortable, and I always found the washroom to be clean and hygienic. Will definitely look... More

At first they tried to entice us with promises for "happy hour". Unfortunately, they also cheated us not fulfilled their promise plus the food and especially the fish was disgusting. That wasn't enough for them so we would also have to argue with them and absorb shouting. Bottom line - they do not really care about the customer's experience and... More
