The food is not bad, we had fish and chicken coconut curry.

They had a happy hour price of 75rps for a cocktail. The cocktail list itself does not carry any prices at all. We ordered a gin and tonic from this list and were charged 120rps. The waiter protested that gin and tonic was not a cocktail.

We spoke to the boss, and pointed out that we should have been told this when we ordered. Eventually our bill was changed.

I hate the bad feeling all this causes when it happens in a restaurant, so we never went back.

For food you should not be in the Blue moon. The food is just dirty. Want the cheapest beer at the north cliff and a beautiful sunset you have to be there!! The staff is friendly. There is an Indian man with a mustache who speaks good English. He chats to everyone within the 'freshly caught fish. "Never mind the fish!

Yes, if you want the best fresh juice in varkala (I will say southern India) go to blue moon.

No, if you want to eat at a clean place, don't go to blue moon.

I went there for the juice and move onto another place for food. Win win!

Nice seafood but it took over an hour to get our food and the service was poor. They were more interested in getting people to come to their restaurant than actually serving the existing patrons.

I didn't like the food here much, it was okay, nothing great. I had prawns and other stuff. also didn't like the toilet much. Not a great place for me. I also didn't like the fact that the restaurant people were constantly accosting tourist to visit their place, which was annoying for people who want to have a quiet evening.
