We were told about this place by a local, so decided to give it a try and it did not disappoint. We went back again and again.. Very cheap and delicious food. Try the fish muhglai!!! Beer is served discreetly as it is illegal to drink on the cliffs.. Fantastic service.

The food here is in the top 3 places in Varkala cliff. The found is not too spicy and perfect for the western palette. Beautiful view from the top . It is very airy and the customer service is good. I have not gone here during the off seasons. But it's a must go during the peak seasons( Dec-Jan)

Excellent food at reasonable prices. Waiters will quite happily chat to you about the food and make informed advice on the best fish of the day. The fish curries are stunning and the view whilst you eat it can't be topped in Varkala.
