We stopped here for a quick drink and were contemplating dinner but decided against it for a number of reasons. Aside from a deserted restaurant even at peek time for tourists, the staff were disinterested and when they felt we weren't ordering enough became rude. There were no lights turned on when it got dark and the whole place had... More

Decent service, but may be because it was empty when we visited. Good view and we were allowed to play our own music, so was a good night.

Good place for a drink. Food not so good. Service is very slow. The old guy with a hat ('Hatman Madhu') here is quite a popular man. Will recommend for drinks and quick snack. The Best thing here is the message wall where visitors can write any thoughts and messages with chalk.

Never recommend this place, the ambiance is dead and the owner Tumba will do anything to get you in his restaurant, not only that but he is rude (I saw him make fun of his customers a few times) I tried pretty much all the places and would recommend: Coffee Temple, Marine palace and Juice Shack

Great fresh food looking out over the ocean. It's affordably priced, staff are friendly. We are here twice. Great pakoras, fish curries and juices. I'm confident that everything they make is awesome.

We had breakfast here and also spent an enjoyable evening. Heard some good live blues music, and I would return to this beautiful spot....

Tumba is the best barman in Varkala and his bar is a great place to listen to live music, have good coctails and nice food. If you visit the place ask for Tumba !!

Breakfast dosa was good and tasty but took over half an hour to arrive most days. The staff are quite pushy with anybody walking past and I could see that they were actually discouraging people with their pushiness even when people were looking interestedly at the menu. On the last occasion I ate there when I ordered a bottle of... More

We were staying close to this cafe. Every time we passed this cafe, the same man would force us to come and eat or drink. And when we politely declined, he would ask why/felt disappointed. Male staff would also stare at us. We did have a few drinks here, it was okay.

We went here for evening drinks as there was posters up everywhere advertising live music and it looked to be a good night. There was no live music, in act no music at all. The staff member we spoke to was completely stoned and could barely respond to what we were saying. Another member of staff gave us free shots... More
