I had the nicest pad thai outside of Thailand! The staff are lovely too. The reason I haven't given a 5 is the steak was really tough

I had several breakfasts and dinners in Trattorias during my stay in Varkala. They have very good breakfasts and amazing fish for dinner. The waiters are super friendly and welcoming, I can't wait to go back next year :)

Upstairs has great views while ground level is more for people watching. Food arrived quickly and was tasty though a little too salty. Prices same as elsewhere. Menu same as elsewhere perhaps from better pizza

Trattoria has a great view, right on the cliff but with less tourist traffic so it feels more relaxed. Overall, we really enjoyed the food and our whole experience. The staff are attentive and polite. Highly Recommended for those travelling solo and for romantic dinners.

We found this restaurant to be the best all round eating experience on the north cliffs at varkala. Great coffee at breakfast and the masala omelette and hash brown potato should be tried as well. I had this nearly every morning on our 10 day...stay in varkala and accompanied by the view it never got boring!! The cocktails, pizza and sizzlers in the evening were also excellent. The staff matched the food and ambience. They could not have been friendlier. We really felt we made friends there and it would (will) be a highlight if we were to return. It was my daughter's 10th birthday while we were there and they treated her amazingly, bringing out cake with candles on for her and making a big fuss. On our last night free desert to say goodbye. Like I said real friends were made and I can't rate them high enough. We hope to see them all again soon. They really stood out amongst the many restaurants along the cliff top. 10 out of 10More

Hope you get the info you're looking for, Jack. I can thoroughly recommend it, and the menu is fairly varied - covering all tastes - but key dishes like seafood are cooked fresh. Good breakfasts too and great cocktails.
