I m a fan of Clafouti restaurant. Its my headquarters for the last 5 years. Its always a great choice of tasty food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Add amazing ocean view and very reasonable prices)) Plus very experienced staff-few chef for different cuisine, waiters...working here for many years. And their speciality - seafood in tandoori! Clafouti restaurant - the best choice on the Cliff in Varkala. Now open again!More
We came here because of the great reviews and fresh fish, but we were very disappointed. They had a great selection of fish, but the cooking of it was very poor. I got the Mahi Mahi in a banana leaf which ended up being a...dry preparation. We asked for it spicy, but the flavor was so dull. In addition, the rice was very poor quality and had no seasoning whatsoever. The place was busy, but I don’t get the attraction. It was my worst meal in Kerala by far!More
I had visited Clafouti for the dinner during my trip. I heard lot about it, but it was a total disappointment, specially the service. I ordered multiple things initially but had to cancelled because of the service, so I cannot comment much about the...food.
The waiters are too casual to take the orders, specially for Indians as 30 minutes my order did not come and I asked him, he clearly denied saying I did not placed any order.
Lastly, some other waiter came took my ordered.
The staff gives special treatment to the foreign tourists and do not treat the Indians well.
I visited Varkala for 4 days but did not go to Clafouti. Sorry to say but there are other restaurants also nearby which gives better food and service.More
Great view and food. Service is also extraordinary. Crows can take your food from the place during the day (lol) if you leave it alone and if you are sitting on the first floor. The place is quite spacious and doesn’t feel crowded even if...there are many people. Grilled seafood is available in the evening like many other restaurants in Varkala cliff. The place is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner (been here for all at different times)
They have got momo/dumplings too. One of the few best places around the area to avoid the heat during the day.More
Very nice spacious place with marine view from north cliff. Meals were delicious,good spiced, fresh - espacially tandoori seafood. Portions are huge :) friendly, discrete staff and very fast service (afternoon), reasonable prices.
