I went to this restaurant 3 times during my stay in Varkala in January, it got better each time. The view is stunning, it was very laid back vibe and the food was great. I wish I was there now. Could just eat a grilled fish with salad.

I love this place. The staff is awesome. The food is great! I recommend ordering fresh fish or South Indian food. They have a large menu, and I prefer to stick with what's more local and I've never been disappointed. Get something from the grill! Try a South Indian veggie dish like my beloved beetroot thoran. These people are hard-working,... More

We arrived in time for the sunset and the tables soon filled after us. A great cliff top setting, don't try and find it via the beach at dusk, we watched others struggling to climb the steep cliff steps, it's less than 5 mins tuk tuk from helipad. Great food, cold beer, there's no need to rush here just relax... More

Again as with the previous review i have done on another restaurant in Varkala, keep things into perspective and you might be pleasantly surprised. I told the manager when entering that we were recommended to come to the restaurant so expectations were higher. Food order arrived after 45 mins but we were hoping it was worth the wait. The Chicken... More

It's a measure of how good Green Pepper is that we ate there 3 times during our 5-night stay in Varkala. The menu is extremely varied with multi-national and North Indian options as well as the usual South Indian fare. They also have a proper tandoor, which they use to great effect. The first night there I ate fresh butterfish... More

We went there for dinner and the food was a bit boring and expensive for a rather small portion (compared to mama champon at papanasan beach road with the most delicious food, huge portions and super friendly and funny staff). For my taste the food was too sweet...but all in all it is a ok restaurant with an ok staff... More

After travelling for 10 hours, our host from Villa Akasa recommended Green Pepper. We loved it so much that we returned 3 times over our stay. Great service, the food is delicious and very well priced, clean kitchen and amazing view. This was nicer than North Cliff which feels very touristy. At Green Pepper it is more private and calm....

Restaurant with a beautiful view over the cliff. Food and service are nice but the best is the view from south cliff over the sea.

We found Green Pepper by accident, as it was near the hotel where we were staying and we were trying to find a cliff walk to the beach when we stumbled upon it... But we were so glad we did find it! The views from the restaurant are breath-taking and it's so romantic at night! The service was first class... More

Great food, great views - I never went to this place on my last visits to Varkala, maybe because there was no direct way to this restaurant from where I stayed. The food was really good and not expensive, the view is great.
