My husband and I had dinner here and the views were wonderful. The food and service left something to be desired. The overall ambiance is quite nice but the chairs were uncomfortable, cheap plastic. The service was painfully slow. Overall vibe in the place was...good. People seemed friendly and to be enjoying themselves.More

Was really unimpressed with the Coconut Smoothie we had in this restaurant. It was weak and watery with no depth. A shame because we had anticipated eating there during our stay so didn’t bother. Maybe next time .

Looks a nice place and the staff are plentiful and cheery but the food was pretty high-volume and mediocre. We had a Chicken Tandoori and a Prawn Biryani. The chicken was dry -but a lot of it and the prawn biryani had a whole lot...of rice and very few prawns hidden in the plateful of rice. Put simply there was a lot of mediocre food. The beer is opened away from the table and brought to you in two mugs - again - I prefer to see my beer opened in front of me so I know what I’m getting!More

Came here twice for breakfast on the recommendation of others in our group. The first time we had the yogurt, museo i and fruit which was delicious and a giant portion. The second time I think we chose wrong - French toast (undercooked and no...flavour) and Nutella pancake (stodgy and undercooked). The view however is stunning and many of our friends had dinner here during our stay who all had great things to say, particularly about the tandoori fish. Would recommend you book if going for dinner.More

Been here many times, for breakfast lunch and dinner. Food was always great and the ambience is pleasant. Menu is quite affordable and there is seafood to choose from in the evening. The ambience and the staff both are pleasant.

We visited this twice. Locations is amazingly good to enjoy sunsets. Many options for all kinds of food and drinks. Indian and international. Simple order like vege sandwich and vege pakoras worked very well. They bake their bread and sandwich was warm delicious large enough...for ninty rupees. Ginger chai was authentic. I am sure other multiple options for all kinds of cuisine may also be good. Though it’s not a vegetarian place there are many choices front Indian and international dishes. Service is less words but effective. Enjoy one sunset snack or a meal you may like it.More

Came for breakfast, menu has lots of options and the food is tasty, arrived to the table pretty fast. Outdoor tables over looking at the sea, wonderful ambiance and great service. Prices are decent.

We have been to Varkala on four occasions since 2012 and eaten at this restaurant at least once on each visit. This time we had lunch and dinner over different days. The food and service were both as good as ever, with plenty of choice...on the menu and chilled beer available (albeit it served in coffee mugs). The staff are friendly and efficient and the open kitchen provides re-assurance of good hygiene standards. There is a shelf to swap books and a kids corner with Lego etc. This restaurant has been consistently good over the years, and the fact that it has been there eleven years, whilst some others have come and gone, is testament to the quality.More

No absolutely not! The restaurant is known for its friendly, service minded staff and good food. Almost all the other reviews are telling about that.
