We visited here twice for food and once for just drinks to enjoy the view from the balcony at sunset. The first time we visited we sat at the edge of the balcony which had a beautiful breeze and spectacular view. The food was very...fast and the Cocktails too. On our second visit we only had a beer and watched the sunset but despite only having drinks on this occasion we were treated just as well as our first visit. We chose to have the last meal of holiday here having enjoyed it so much on the previous occasions and we were very glad we did . Our waiter looked after us so well. When there wasn’t a balcony seat available initially he said not to worry as people were leaving soon and he would move us as soon as possible. We were moved. Wry shortly afterwards. The Butter Chicken that I ordered was delicious. I would highly recommend this place .More

Yummy ice creams and coffee. Great service and friendly staff. Clean and good selection of ice cream and cakes. No tea available, but that’s ok

First place we tried, jetlagged , day one into our holiday. Amazing warm welcome. They took care of our daughter intro into real Indian seafood. She just gobbed it all, so did we with our servings. Just amazing fish and prawns. Decent beer, great fruit...juices (all places will have the best juices). Amazing sea view from the restaurant. Mostly locals or Indian holidaymakers at the time of the visit. No brainer if you don't know where to go I think.More

Ace at racial discrimination. Against indians. They say corner tables are 'reserved' But there is no 'reserved' placard.

I gave 3 star only for the view. Staff-Very rude Cocktails - did not taste the alcohol just lemon juice in mojito. Toilets very dirty and heavy urine smell.

Darjeeling Cafe at North Cliff, Varkala, is a hidden gem that left me mesmerized! The tranquil ambiance, reminiscent of the serene Darjeeling hills, instantly transported me to a place of pure bliss. The delectable assortment of authentic teas and mouthwatering momos brought back nostalgic memories...of home. The friendly staff and warm hospitality made me feel like a cherished guest. It's the perfect spot to unwind, soak in the breathtaking views, and savor the flavors of the Himalayas. Darjeeling Cafe, you have won my heart – I'll definitely be returning for more delightful experiences!"More

Delicious drinks and Onion pakoras. I could easily spend several more hours just getting drinks and snacks, while I sit here reading my book, to the sound of crashing waves. Friendly staff who aren’t bothered that I was there so long. Give it a go.

Ordered large fresh prawns for a buttered garlic dish. Was told I would have at least 5 for 1000 rupees (£10). The prawns that arrived were not freshly cooked and the heads certainly didn't match the tails. when it arrived I said that wasn't acceptable...and haggled with the waiter until he agreed to reduce the price to 600 rupees, still a lot of money in India. the accompanying chips and veg were also luke warm and not fresh. Wish I had tried them first and would have sent the whole dish back. Overal very poor. My partner buttered chicken and naan for 410 was much better. No issues. Be careful with the fresh seafood and they try and con you.More

The food was increadable here, so much so we came here 4 nights in a row. Tika blue fin marlin was a definite winner and passion fruit mojitos were just devine. Super attentive and friendly staff, too. Thank you for looking after us

Went there for dinner. Food and drinks were good, however waiting time and service skills didn’t meet our expectations. This place is popular with groups of young male visitors, which brings along a certain atmosphere.

The food was ok, but as the evening progressed the music volume increased. It became too loud to hear each other speak, so we ended up leaving
