If you want to visit Varkala, book Clafouti Beach Resort and enjoy its restaurant's excellant view and food. I think this is the best place to enjoy in Varkala.

Would score higher but a couple of times we struggled to get a table and or had to wait a long time, we did think there was actually plenty of room to provide extra tables rather than keep us waiting or turn us away. The food is good thus it being busy ? The staff I found to be excellent.

We went to Clafouti twice because the food was so good! The fish tandoori was the best dish we ordered followed by the king prawns cooked in chilli, coriander and garlic. Friendly staff and buzzy atmosphere.

Went there because of good reviews. Ordered veg sizzler witch was ok but wasn't the best. Portion not very big. Staff was friendly but nothing special. Prices are very reasonable.

What caught our eye first, was that it seemed to be the busiest place around. So we took a closer look at our first night at Varkala, and -- indeed -- for the following 6 nights as well... Excellent and fresh seafood in all it's variety, daily catch surprises, attentive, yet by no means imposing, friendly, warm and immediate staff.... More
