Fairly decent hotel and staff. I visit their bar often. Decent Bar, but they could clean it up more frequently. Food is average .

Was in a mood for some real tasty meal, something traditional and spicy. Sadly this was the wrong place to go to for it. Ordered a plate of pasta and a grilled fillet of fish. the pasta though executed well was nothing extravagant And the fillet was well done, served with uninspiring accompaniments. dont get me wrong the place is...

Perfect location- you can watch the sunset over the Chinese Fishing Nets then saunter over to the restaurant. It is hot and humid in May and the restaurant is a very open space with ceiling fans meaning I found it to be a little bit uncomfortable. The menu is also a bit complex with some questionable options. Maybe it's a... More

Lovely garden, great staff who were friendly and helpful, but my duck was mainly carcass and I couldn't see (no light) to pick what little meat there was off the bone. However, the starter (whitebait) was delicious and my friend, who also had duck, will write a better review as she had all the meat. With alcohol it was pricey... More

We came here for dinner and were really impressed by the food. Prawns with coriander and coconut was absolutely delicious and probably the best meal I've eaten in India so far! Lime and orange cheesecake was also yummy. Slightly expensive for Indian standards but not for Westerners. There was live music which created a lovely atmosphere. Personally I found it... More

Firstly would like to second JimbootAu comments re this fabulous dining area at Old Harbour Hotel in Cochin. During our stay, most meals were taken in the garden restaurant. Fell in love with the Chicken Curry (not "spicy") loads of lovely Kerala flavours. Whitebate also a favourite as well as the Duck, and Chicken Tikka Masala. Squid was excellent. Deserts... More

Beautiful garden setting. We ordered a beer by the pool, under the frangipane trees. Great place be in a walled garden. We didnt try the restaurant, but can recommend a drink. Read a book and chill in the gardens, surrounded by the history of the place. Take a friend or a book, because its n a hugely social place, everyone... More

Much praised top end hotel and restaurant. The outside dining is opulent and has certain a aura. The food was undoubtedly well crafted but left us with a soulless feeling compared to other local dining experiences. Live music and generally attentive staff certainly add to the ambience, but there's more authenticity to be enjoyed elsewhere.
