One of the few restaurants that have 2 floors, and hence very breezy and lovely on the 2nd floor. We tried the fish in banana leaves which was one of the popular dishes, and it did not disappoint. The fish comes cooked in a lovely tomato gravy cooked inside the banana leaf and is served alongside rice or paratha. Also... More

This is one of the nicer restaurants in Varkala. My boyfriend and I visited a couple of times when we were on holiday on November. It's reasonably priced, but feels a bit fancier than most of the restaurants on the strip on the cliff. We had incredible fish tikka here which was probably one of the best things we ate... More

Having visited Varkala in off season time this was of the few restaurants opened. Unfortunately due to the pitiful steak offered, the average decor and breath taking view are easily forgettable. Aware of the difficulties of getting a good steak in India, we were wary of ordering. However after speaking to the waiter he managed to convince us that this... More

Have been coming to Varkala for 4 years and this is a favorite spot for dinner and drinks. My last trip was to teach a yoga retreat and I came here twice with my students -- in fact, they wanted to come here on their last night in Varkala over all the other restaurants they tried for dinner including Juice...

We had a 730 reservation to meet a colleague for drinks and dinner on a Saturday night and ordered a few dishes that were all flavorful and pretty cheap. The drinks weren’t very strong but were tasty enough and we weren’t in a hurry so fast service wasn’t too much a concern. Sky seems more like a laid back place... More

Three people in my group. We each ordered an entre and had a appetizer for the table. The place was humming, it was a Saturday night and very full. Was a little skeptical of the portions that would arrive. Food took about twenty minutes which to me was very reasonable time frame. I was very pleased when the food reached.... More

Albeit we were a large group but the bloody drinks order took 30mins. The meals took forever and then their card machine didn't work and they never informed us. And then they sat there and tried to break the bill apart and try to use a calculator to make sense of the ridiculous mess of things. Honestly, the view was... More

Lot of options in the menu. Food is comming fast and with beautiful presentation. You can feel that everything you eat is fresh. We chose the fish we wanted to have for dinner, and it couldnt have been better cooked! Everything was delicious!! And all this, with the view of the sea. Great quality price ratio.

Description
SKY Lounge,A restaurant with an excellent ambience for travellers of all categories. A place where you can think of enjoying your drinks along with delicious and mouth-watering cuisines. Specialised in Sea food delicacies, the restaurant is located in the heart of Varkala's Cliff exactly opposite to the entrance of the beach. Divided into three sections i.e. a restaurant where you can spent your precious time and treasure it all your life as a memory, a lounge where you try different cocktails and rocking music throughout the day and finally there's a open air space where you can get the tropical experience. The restaurant has a transparent kitchen which reflects the hygienic environment where your meal is prepared, friendly and cooperative people are running this place to take it to the heights of sky so we call it "SKY LOUNGE".
