Great restaurant with a lot of choice on the menu. Tasty food, good service, beautiful scenery. It has it all. I went there three times and was never disappointed. And prices are not as expensive as you could imagine for such a place.

It's always nice to eat by the sea but The Fort House has got everything right. The hotel itself is beautiful and you walk through a palm laden courtyard to the sea at the back, where tables are laid out on a pier jutting out into the water. Romantic at night even though the opposite lights are from the container... More

We've been in India for a week now. All the places recommended by TripAdvisor so far have been mediocre. I found Fort House on Frommers and then cross-referenced Trip Advisor, which I usually trust first and foremost. I think the problem in India is that reviews are written by both foreign and Indian tourists, with different expectations. So as a... More

We found this little gem for lunch whilst staying in Cochin and the food was so good we returned for our evening meal. What a lovely place by the water with great views. The food was outstanding, cooked fresh. We were a party of four and had an array of dishes to share, each one absolutely mouth watering . The... More

This beautiful place is a complete treat for travelers visiting Cochin in search of peace and serenity. Overlooking the waterside, you can have a beautiful silent breakfast, watching the ships come by, or a dinner with friends in the candlelight. The space has the ability to calm your energies, and show you the beautiful sides of life. A wonderful conversation... More

Arcs Nova, the name of this restaurant, is very good and reasonable; the fish in green mango sauce is really delicious and not spicy hot. The grilled fish with sautéed veggies is equally delicious, although not an Indian dish. The stuffed pancake dessert with drizzled honey is a real hit. We also had our favorite sweet lassi in India here.... More

Quality relaxed, chilled Saturday evening with a group of friends. Great food, attentive, but unobtrusive service With the lamps lighting the garden and the view of the harbour, dusk and sunset brought a perfect ambiance to unwind after a hectic week and lots of travel Instant therapy. Memorable evening in exactly the right location!
