Don't be fooled by the name rock n roll. The place was unclean and hot with no ventilation. We waited for an hour to get a simple dish we ordered and it was nowhere in sight. Stands for all that a restaurant should not be. Good to avoid. PS: Arrogant owners as well.

Lovely view over the Arabian Sea. Lots of live music and different DJ's. Run by Max who is very hospitable and friendly chap. A good night out... and only the place for late night opening times. One of our favourite places to visit whilst in Varkala.

My spouse and I spent a few days at Varkala beach and found ourselves returning every evening to this restaurant. Great food, fresh fish and sea food - we tried the red snapper and the king prawns that were fresh, delicious and cooked perfectly. There's a DJ and live shows almost every evening. Definitely worth a visit if you're staying... More

A lovely place on the cliffs of Varkala beach. You can sit and have a good time with your family and friends. Sea food quality is very nice.

The management here can be quite rude. We (a group of 4 girls & 5 boys) were refused entry when we were visiting shortly after Christmas. It seemed they had a tacit programme of racial profiling. The place wasn't even full. Would not recommend.

This place plays amazing music and killer cocktails. They have boardgames available for you to play while watching the sun set over the sea. The food was average and the waiters really slow. But if you are here, you really aren't in a hurry!

Visited this place recently. The waiters are ill mannered and so is their food. There is a waiter wearing spectacles who has the least respect for customers. The food is pretty bad and quite expensive. Never gonna dine here again.

We went to a party with friends and there was a great music group with guitars, bass, cajón and voices and then dj set. It's possible to drink cocktails and the vegetable pakoras are very good ! Good dancing atmosphere and rooftop.
