This restaurant faces the harbor and has a beautiful view. It is part of a gorgeous looking hotel, Fort House, although we didn't stay there. We had a very quiet and delicious meal with slow but pleasant service. It was the most expensive meal we had in Port Cochin which fits the vibe of the hotel but perhaps not the... More

Fort house offers great candle-lit dining opportunity nearby the sea, with a very enjoyable marine breeze and beautiful small exotic garden. Dishes served are mainly traditional Kerala style, but there is also a nice selection of tasty western dishes, all very subtle in taste and beautifully presented. Service was very smooth and friendly. I went for the kerala-style shrimps, and... More

We went for dinner as a group of 12 and had the most fantastic table , right out on the water. Everyone seemed extremely happy with what they ate. I had an aubergine curry and a paneer dish, both of which were excellent and very good value. Yes the service was slow and a bit haphazard. It seemed as if... More

This was our first night dinner in Fort Kochi. It was a lively setting on the pier looking at the water and lights across the bay. Unfortunately the service was very slow, and the food was decent but not exceptional. We found it good value at 1100 for two. This is probably more leaning towards 3.5 stars but it wasn't... More

We had a table out toward the end of the pier with marvelous views over the water. We enjoyed watching the ships and boats coming and going--all sizes and shapes from a one-person skiff to a giant cargo ship. The food was okay, not exceptional, certainly not the best we had, but not bad. The service was pretty wretched. Our... More

We went for lunch and had a delicious freshly cooked meal. Fish curry for husband, prawns, daal and paratha for me. Great views, nice staff and a fair price.

We had stumbled across this restaurant whilst walking one afternoon and thought it would be a delightful place to have dinner as it is in a lovely location right on the water. When we arrived the next evening it looked even prettier than during the day. Sadly, that's the end of my positive comments. The food was average at best... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Fort House, breakfast and dinner in the restaurant added to our enjoyment. A good range of veg and non-veg dishes, the seafood and pork vindaloo were particularly good. A lovely location on the waterside with an attractive courtyard, the Fort House is an oasis in the busy city of Kochi. Service... More

We had stayed at the hotel for a couple of days and ended up having breakfast a couple of times and lunch & dinner once, at the place. We loved every single meal that we had and we really appreciated that all the ingredients tasted fresh. One of those rare places where we didn't have complaints about any dish and... More

We went here for dinner and were very satisfied! The service was great and there was delicious local food. You can watch huge ships cruise by on the backwaters, and the location is great. There is quite a variety of food for vegetarians. We will certainly come back again on our next visit!
