Description: The Juice Shack Restaurant features an outstanding new menu with a touch of Indian and Kerala influence in an upscale and cozy atmosphere. The menu is inspired from different cuisine's specialties and will appeal to a wide and varied clientele. We will offer healthy, tasty juices and a salad buffet every week with a mixture of salads and Indian dishes with Indian bread and rice in addition to the regular menu. We will be open 7 days a week, serving food Monday - Sunday 07.00 AM -10.30 PM. The Juice Shack Restaurant will be the perfect place when customers need that 'little extra.' They can have business meetings here, a place for a quiet conversation, or for a special occasion. We will make up special platters or full course meals for customers' special occasions. We always make everything WELL and when you have it it becomes great.

“Juices and more…”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

If you are looking for a relaxing place in the shadows after a hot day on the beach and are craving for a really good juice – this is the place to be. The Juice Shack is focussing on uncomplicated healthy vegetarian food and drinks using local products. The family run business makes the best of it. On some evenings Mr. Umesh and his wife prepare a keralan buffet offering a range of 10 salads and main courses. GO THERE! It`s a Jackpot. Just go to the owner and ask if he is planning any. Maybe he will take this as an instance to prepare one. After the buffet we were overwhelmed by the taste of the dishes, so we asked some questions on how to cook these lovely meals. Guess what – Mr. Umesh spontaneously invited us to his kitchen for the next morning to give us a little cooking class and some recipes. Thank`s again for that. We already cooked the tomato chutney – superb and easy. Generally the people that are working there are very friendly and helpful and are happy do give local information.

Resume: The juice shack is no 5 star restaurant. But it doesn`t have to be because it has so much more to offer than fancy food and stiff waitors. So from us it is still 5 stars!

On the next visit in Varkala straight for a juice and more at the – well you know. Greetings from Aris and Anja from Germany.

“delicious juice and free wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

The owner is a very friendly guy with a good sense of humour, a great place for juice and lunch. Its situated a little away from the main clifftop street, so its very peacefull. Its a family friendly place and you can sit downstairs outdoors or under the roof on the second floor. It has free Wifi.

“Dirty filthy tent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

It looks so dirty that you do not even dare to sit there. For what you order, look especially here in the kitchen ... Lonely Planet recommend? Forget it.

“Wonderful Start To The Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

The Juice Shack is a must when visiting Kerala. Situated off the beaten track from the main cliff, Umesh and his family will provide you with the best Juices and breakfasts Varkala has to offer.
There are so many different flavours and combinations of juices and Lassis to choose from.
The fresh fruit. curd, muesli and honey breakfasts are a wonderfully healthy start to the day, but the pièce de résistance has to be the Papaya boat- try it.
A couple of evenings a week Umesh and his family lay on a Keralan Thali feast buffet.
An excellent way to try the different types of Keralan dishes at a very reasonable price.
Umesh has a welcoming smile and wonderful gift of remembering his customers names for when you return – Believe me, you will.
