Had awesome masala chai tea and iced coffee. They also had fresh real bread, and their muesli was fresh. Portion sizes were great.

Last time when i was in varkala I spent every single evening on their mezzanine deck sipping masala tea.. excellent place to watch sunset and drink pipping hot masala tea when its drizzling . I was fortunate to enjoy rains from their top deck. Other foods are pretty okayish. Pizzas are pretty good , if not great. Service is average.

Having tried a few restaurants in Varkala I'd say this place has some of the tastiest, most well-cooked seafood available. Squid is something I'll pretty much order the moment I see it on the menu, and theirs was excellent, and good portions too.

Probably the best pizzas in town!! The service is impeccable and very friendly. Try especially the upper-deck for its green and relaxing setting!

This restaurant is very nicevand quiet on the roof. If you want to see the sunset, it's very good place. The waiters are serious. The Bruschetta are very good and cheap ! The starters also ! It's sad, because the pizza are not excellent and the choice is very small...but you don't come in India for the pizzas !

Had a thin crust with olives, basil, and cheese and it was delicious. Who knew you could have a nice pizza sitting in the south of India :). The service was great and very welcoming. Great balcony up top!

Along the cliff road in VArkala, its one of the best restaurants . Offering variety of foods, from Italian to grilled and Chinese. The Pizza are to go in for (close to authentic Italian stuff). But the best if grill fish. You can choose the fresh stock available on show and get it grilled straight. Other stuff is also nice.... More
