Friendly waiters in a prime spot. Good selection of dishes although some are on the small side. I ended up just soaking up the atmosphere more than anything during my afternoons in varkala.

They have no respect whatsoever for Indians though the restaurant is owned and run by Indians. I haven’t seen this arrogance in other countries.

The setting on the cliff top is wonderful, my expectations were high and very quickly dashed. The best part of the evening was my Vodka tonic, no gin as they couldn't get it although several other restaurants were selling gin. I found it difficult to...More

I was really disappointed with the food here. I ordered a salad, which was very bland and then made me ill later in the day. I also ordered coffee, which tasted like water. It's best to eat somewhere else.More

We are sorry about the situation, but if the tables are booked we cannot give them away. We offered you a table in the garden instead, but you did not want it. Regards Abba Restaurant

I think the reviews that say this are inaccurate. We've come to Varkala for two years running and the staff at Abba are some of the most hard working and genuine people I've met on my travels. They are polite and incredibly... More

One of the biggest restaurants on Varkala Cliff. ABBA is the only restaurant on the cliff who has got Certificate of Excellence 6 years in a row. We are famous for our excellent service and high quality food. ABBA Restaurant is located on the cliff with an amazing seawiev. Our customers use to enjoy the sunsets when they enjoy a drink or some early dinner. We have a library where you can exchange books for free and we provide toys for the children so they can play on the big lawn.
