Amazing location in the heart of fort kochi, walking distance from the beach and a number of other local attractions. It's a nice place to catch up with friends ( wine bar), or have a romantic dinner at their restaurant.

This is the best restaurant in India! We didn't stay at the hotel, but we had frequant drinks and dinner there. The staff is very polite and kind. The food was amazing, It's worth a MICHELIN STAR. We had a 6 course dinner, specially made for us, because we are vegetarian. The chef personally explained every course. Thank you, hope... More
