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.

We ordered different foods, out of it Seafood soup, momos and tandoori chicken was good. Pizza, Pasta, Lasagna and all was average.

The staff is excellent at service and extremely friendly. We had meals there for a week and they memorised our order patterns immediately. Best place for vegetarian food. Cheese momos, Israeli breakfast were delicious. Its on the cliff facing the sea and has a good...view too. The cost was also lesser than other cafes nearby. Must visit at Varkala.More

One of the best tourist restaurants in North Cliff. Nice view, tasty food, friendly staff, affordable prices. There is a big choice of dishies and desserts available, including European, Italian, Indian, Nepali, Chineese food. Clean and well-serviced place. Food normally is very tasty. I have...been there many times both for coffee and mango pie or cheese cakes, lunch and dinner. Staff arrives to work there from Darjeeling, I guess.More
