Good location north of the middle of the Cliff Quite large and busy Good cold drinks with fast service Food is on a par with most. If you go for fish then make sure that you haggle

The restaurant is a little far on the Varkala cliff, but provides a good ambience, lot of variety in food even for vegetarians, nice food and service. The staff is quick to respond to your needs and is very friendly. Must try would be the mango shake.

Very very poor hospitality and attitude. A big no no for this place. No directions to this place, no board outside the hotel, staff is rude and the rooms are far below average.

Restaurant on the cliff is worth a visit. Nothing like sitting here in the evening and having your dinner. Try the catch of the day that is displayed. :) A bit expensive for Varkala standards but no complaints.

Clafouti restaurant always has an abundance of fresh seafood to choose from. The view is great and the ambiance relaxing. They do not serve alcohol.

Friendly and attentive front of house staff and great recommendations regarding the fresh seafood they had that day, how to cook etc. Both our seafood dishes were cooked to perfection and really tasty with spice levels tailored to your palate.

Very non pulse servers here,they look at you up and down. Don't promote their place in nice sweet way. This is why I say plenty of attitude if you know what I mean here. Like superior,when we are all the same anyway. Food is so so, but service killed it for me. Not my style.

Thank srimanone
