Good food

We visited here a couple of times whilst staying in kochi. The first time was great, perfect starters and really fresh fish, despite the fact a huge monsoon was going on outside the service was brilliant. Second time was slightly disappointing considering our first visit. The food didn't taste... read more

I admit, the food here is delicious. Great ambience and location. However, the restaurant staffs here lack the basic customer service. I wanted to pay with my credit card and I was asked to walk from my table, all the way to the hotel reception area. After waiting for 5+ minutes, the staff told me their machine is not working...

The Fort House Restaurant, is located in idyllic Fort Kochi, on the waters edge overlooking the Valarpadam Terminal and Vypin Island! The restaurant forms part of the Fort House Hotel, which is a beautiful and quaint resort property, which is like non-other in Kochi. The food is Portuguese inspired and extremely yummy! Every item in the menu appears to be... More

The staff at this restaurant are awesome - and the location can't be beat for lunch, dinner or breakfast. As you are eating, all different kinds of boats pass by, from cruise ships to small fishing canoes. And the food was really good, especially the fish and the breakfasts. The staff was accommodating and friendly.

I came in January 14 to this restaurant and fell in love with it. It was my favourite place we came to for food, so I had to get back this year!! I took my parents there as we all went on holiday to Kochi and I was confident in the knowledge that they'd love this place! I wasn't wrong.... More

Charming ambience beside the sea in the open air, excellent prawn and fish curry. The quantity of each portion is very less and service just a bit lethargic but overall a great place to have a quite lunch. I'd surely recommend this place to anyone visiting Fort Kochi.

The location is very good, in a good part of the city and by the water. The food is also very good. And so is the service. The price is acceptable.
