Clafouti is a good restaurant with a very wide choice of food at a very good price. It's position is wonderful, overlooking the sea from the top of the cliff. We saw dolphins while we were waiting for our food. The quality of the food is always good as are the waiting staff. They do not serve beer.

The view of the ocean is amazing. The food is pretty good; they brought it really fast and the waiters were very friendly. It seems to be focused more on regular tourists instead of backpackers. The prices seemed to be cheaper than other restaurants though. Recommended for the beautiful views and service.

I had the breakfast and dinner there on the upper deck ( 1st floor ) just so that it is less crowded and for the view of the Arabian Sea. Service of the waiters ' varies, may be they are overworked or either they are home sick or have a bad attitude. I somehow managed to get a good waiter.... More

We ate here quite a few times over a 3 month period. The seafood was particularly good and reasonably priced. Cliff top location with sea views and a nice cooling breeze on the top floor. Clean facilities and attentive, friendly staff. Definitely one to try.

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.
