Great setting and we enjoyed a breakfast there. We were disappointed that the fish when we returned for lunch didn’t taste fresh. Maybe during high season when they are selling more this won’t be as much of an issue.

I visited this place during the sunset. I wanted to try out their momos but they were not available and hence ended up having Thukpa. Thukpa was warm and nice. More than that, I enjoyed the sunset view from the cafe Location - Darjeeling Cafe,...Varkala Cliff, Kerala Cost - 200 bucks for the thukpaMore

I went after seeing lot of positive reviews. But my experience was bad. We went to the café during evening sunset since it had nice view. Ordered French fries and peanut masala. They nearly took half an hour to serve this two item. When we...asked to cancel the order, they said they will check in kitchen and with in 5 minutes our order was served. Attitude of the person who served us was the worst. He just didn’t bother to take our order or serve food. And price was high comparing to other surrounding café. Some masala was put on French fries which we didn’t asked for. Peanut masala was not up to the mark. I personally didn’t got that positive vibe which I was expecting from the reviews I read.More

It is located in the Varkala cliff. Takes a 5-10 mins walk along the strip that houses many test and resorts. Offers a wide variety of menu along with a great view of the ocean. The taste was good as well. Worth the money spent.

It is an unpretentious place facing the sea. The service was average and the fried noodles that I ordered was tasty. However, the fish curry that was ordered was foul.

Omg, it's a horrible life-threatening place especially psycho staff, go at your risk, anytime your life may be at stake. another day I had to witness two incident, one is regarding changing music tracks, the guy counterpointed sharp knife towards the customer and threatened him....after a few minutes, the very same guy jumped towards another customer with a steel rod in hand, was there to hit the customer's head. Me and my family eloped from there thanking god we got our life back.I strongly recommend don't go to this goon's cafe.More

Amazing ambiance and great music attract you at first to this place. It's a multi-cuisine restaurant by the cliff beach, having dishes from different parts of the world. The food was yum and the service was pretty much on time. We still felt the service...could be much better. You must visit this place if you are in Varkala.More

Fantastic and chilled out place to watch the beautiful sunset with the best food & drink we had in Varkala- and Paneer Tikka was the best we have ever had anywhere. Lovely and easygoing staff as well.

We ate at several restaurants during our 7 day stay in the Varkala area. This was by far the best one. I had the prawns tandoor and they were great. Nicely spiced and properly cooked, served with a tasty salad and French fries. My partner...had chicken tikka masala and thought it was one the best she had had. She asked for “non-spicy” and it was just right for her. Service is a little relaxed, but who is in a hurry anyway. Relax and enjoy the shade and view of the beach. Then eat up!More
