Usually quite a good popular restaurant. Unfortunately today when I had my fruit salad and yogurt they decided to use the same knife for cutting fruit as the one they use for garlic. Happens a lot in India....they'll get it right eventually. Good food and...high reputation.More

This review is long overdue...We ate at this restaurant about 5-6 times during our stay in Varkala and it was lovely every single time we went. The food was delicious. The staff were polite and attentive. And the owner treated us to something very special...before we left...a complimentary full-course dinner. We are at a loss for words by the quality service and exceptional eating experiences we had here. Thank you so much! Sorry this review took so long to post! Forgot the name of the restaurant. All the best!More

We sat upstairs on the front line of seats which was lovely with a cooling breeze on a balmy evening. My chicken biryani was very good with lovely spicing and flavours. My partner's veg pad thai was also very tasty. Our waiter was very pleasant...and informative and service was good.More

I ordered beef burger, however the taste/consistency of the meat was not good. Wouldn't order it again. The staff is friendly and card payment accepted. Nice view by the ocean.

So. 4.5 stars at Tripadvisors means it's a good chance we'll check it out if we are around. A perfect location on Varkalas cliff you should go for dinner around sunset. Then you get two for one experience wise. The food is mediocre. Quite nice....But nothong more. A menu that offers several dishes. For most people I would say. Fresh fish a step away gives the fishlovers an extra twist. Mostly tourists, but also one and another local ate there at the time we were there. Great place to sit and watch life in Varkala Or just the view.More

We are a couple. We follow good reviews... mistake ! Tonight, we waited 1h30 before being served ! All tables around us were being served before us. Even guests came later ! The waiter forgot us even we reminded him our presence 3 times (2...with smiles). Finally, we got chicken tika tandoori and it was not good at all : the chicken was rubbery. Obviously, the waiter forgot our bill. After 15 minutes, we went downstairs to pay : they wanted we paid a bottle of mineral water ordered but... never arrived. All this dinner was a joke. Never again.More

My seafood was reasonably cooked but my friends food order was served with a puddle of glue like mashed potatoes. We were too early for the BBQ/ grill service so things might have been better. The views from the upstairs area is superb for sunsets....Would give this place another try - seemed like a popular place.More

We visited this restaurant while randomly strolling on the cliff in Varkala! The Sea food served here is a must try, specially the butter garlic king prawns & the english breakfast. The upper deck seating provides the best view of the sea with the sea...breeze complimenting it. Relaxing place to dine as well. Kept revisiting this place over & over again. They have a cute dog named Rassa! who loves attention from all the visitors.More

Was there for a month and Clafouti was a repeat. The people always greeted me with a smile and made sure to accommodate to whatever I needed. Yummy food, fresh ingredients and great ambience. Very spacious and perfectly situated.

Beach/ Cliff view from Roof top is amazing. Not much ambience. We went here for afternoon lunch. We ordered Pizza and Fried rice. Food was decent. People here are friendly. Can visit here for watching sunset.
