AMAZING! Heaven for non-vegetarians! Ambience is awesome!

Don't miss this place if you're in search for some greaaat local food! It has the best Appams and is a delight for the meat lovers. The beef curry, fish curry, squid, pork is outstanding! Their Kerala Pancakes are the best dessert they offer, followed by the spiced figs with icecream. It also has... read more

Popped in for late lunch on our daughters recommendation (she'd been in Jan 14) and she wanted to visit again. The walkway to the restaurant is lovely and I bet it is romantic at night when lit with tea lights. We were quickly shown to a table which had a great view over the sea and which managed to catch...

Went to this restaurant for a evening meal, food was amazing, service excellent and the setting was great. We has 2 starters 3 mains 2 breads 1 rice 2 deserts and 4 drinks and the bill come to 2040 rupee about 21/22pounds. I have spent many times this on meals that haven't been half as good.

Found the place by "mistake", having been directed somewhere else...rarely has a coincidence been more fortunate! The food bears a simple refinement that reminds of top-quality "home-made" food. The fish curries are something to die for. Fish peera was legendary, prawns as well. Drinks included, from the thirst quenching homemade ginger ale to the lassi. Dulcis (quite literally) in fundo,...

Beautiful view to have a meal, watching the boats go by, outdoor sitting was excellent. There is indoor seating as well. Service was top notch. We had prawn mango curry, kerala fish curry, okra fried vegetable with red kerala rice and chapatis. The ginger soda was very refreshing on a very hot day.

A very nice restaurant in a fantastic place! Very beautiful views, and very tasted food! Eating on the terrace, was really really romantic and special! Not so expensive and not so economic! The perfect quality price report!

The restaurant here stretches onto a jetty and as you eat you can watch boats of all sorts and sizes coming and going. The food was excellent: suberb fish, and I had a Kerala pancake for dessert, dessicated coconut, nuts and raisins flavoured with cardamom inside, drizzled with honey. The only down side is that they don't sell alcohol.

This was my third time at Fort House Restaurant and everytime I have been there it was a wonderful evening! The Restaurant is located on an unused peer, so that you will sit directly at the water, enjoying the nice view! The food there was always really good! I especially love the Mango Prawn Curry and the lassis. For desert... More

We had two days in Kochi and had hoped to stay at the Fort House hotel, but it was booked up. So we decided to at least try the recommended restaurant. We went for dinner and sat outside on the pier. It was a great experience; very, very good food, excellent service and a great ambiance. And the price was... More
