Other than the good View nothing much was so great about this restaurant. The food was normal and it didn't cost much.

We visited this restuarant during our visit to Varkala and had Thali in lunch which was delicious and completely South Indian authentic taste. Worth the money!!!

This is a cool place to have a couple of beers and listen to some good (not too loud) music. Staff are friendly, and they carry alternatives to the Kingfisher strong that seems to the only beer that the rest of Varkala sells. It's a nice place to watch the sunset with no pressure to eat here, or move on... More

I will NEVER eat in this place again. Last night staff brutally castrated some beautiful dogs when it closed. They were drunk and laughing. Pictures have been taken of this terrible evil act and YOU have been reported to the police. No tourists will ever eat here and I hope your business will close! You are disgusting, cruel , weak...

Perhaps we went at the wrong time but we were not impressed by this place in the slightest. The food we received was poor and measly portions, which was no bad thing as we didn't want to eat much of it! After eating we passed the kitchen to find the kitchen staff hanging around in the kitchen smoking weed.

One of the best views in the north cliff strip for sunsets. There's ice cold beer and excellent, friendly service. The only place we could find with wifi fast enough to sustain a phone call. They make their own paneer which was a delicious bonus!

Sunset did the best prawns in Varkala, be warned food is cooked fresh to order so service can be a little on the slow side we saw grumpy guests complaining they hadn’t had their food which we thought was unreasonable given they were getting exceptionally fresh food cooked to their requirements in a packed restaurant. We ate here a couple of times thoroughly enjoyed the food and thought the price very reasonable.
