A solace in Varkala. We spend four days in Varkala and was lucky to have found this place after many disappointments with other places. Good service and they wrre able to customize it as per our needs. Bheem was a sweetheart. Food was good, wouldnt...awesome, but then compared to some other places closeby this was heaven. View from here is good and a good place to sit and relax. Pricing was also decent.More

Found Abba as the best restaurant in both visits to Varkala (Dec 2016 & Jan 2022). Had most of the meals there. Both food & service are impeccable. Some suggestions to go for, Breakfast-Chicken Sandwich, Ginger Lemon Honey Tea Lunch/Dinner-Chicken Stroganoff, Chicken Rum Steak, Chicken...Malai Kebab, Chicken steam momos.More

Wad there for a month and went there for lunch, snack and dinner. Love their seating arrangement, they have a big menu to choose from, everything is very clean, service is professional and efficient and the staff is super friendly. Great place to look at...the sunset if you sit in the front tables. Loved it there!More

We had an eye on this café from the time we visited varkala because of its superb ambience and cliff beach view Tried on the last evening of our stay. We went here on sun set time just for some snacks. Then we stayed here...till dinner just because of its ambience and view of the cliff. People here are soft spoken. We ordered Cold coffee, Pasta, noodles and banoffee pie with ice cream. Noodles was good. All other items was just okay. Not that great. They could have improved on food. Over all: The ambience and view from the café is the best in Varkala. Not so great for food.More

Awesome view from the cliff. Lovely seating with candle light dinner and view of the sea with little lights of boats twinkling far away and cool breeze from the sea add to the beauty of this place. Service takes a little extra time but was...perfectly done. We had a good time and certainly wish to go back to this place soon. P.S. Getting a table for dinner on a Sunday may be a challenge. Better to book in advance, if they permit.More

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

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.
