Good food by the ocean, better than on the cliff walk. South indian food plus seafood available. Down behind helipad is a walkway.

We were only in Varkala for 24 hours but came back to this place twice. We had an excellent dinner watching the sunset then came back for a great breakfast the next day. Great service and great for people watching. Highly recommended.

The shack is pretty scruffy, especially upstairs where the wood floor planks are all croocked and squeaky, but the fried calamari were perfectly cooked and crispy. Came back a second time for lunch and and had a lovely grilled fish and a prawns noodle dish....More
