The location next to the water is really good. Food can be improved. It was a bit too oily. Service was slow which could be because it was a very busy day...

We spend two hours in this place and still didn't get served our complete order and whatever was served after an hr of wait it was uncooked. Extremely poor service and I sincerely don't recommend anyone to come here.

The food was reasonably tasty, great in fact it if you like spicy, but it was greasy and he seafood had the distinct texture of something that had been reheated from frozen. Not worth the expensive price tag for the food when compared to other places we ate, however the lovely location by the sea was more memorable.

Once of a very reasonable few restaurants serving alcohol in Kochi Fort (two other venues were either reserved for a function or license had expired). Food was quite good (in fact dined twice, and food was substantially better the quieter of the two nights), ordered prawn coconut fry, tiger prawns and fish fry. Very pleasant venue overlooking the water (entire... More

We went across to the Seagull because our hotel next door doesn't serve liquor. The beer was perfectly chilled, but the snacks were spicier than we could handle.

The excellent location by the waterside is what attracts most people to this place! The view, and bottles of chilled beer is basically what one needs to beat the heat.That said, the food is not particularly appealing, more so because of the long wait between the drinks and your meal.Around lunchtime, the waiters seem restless and eager to take a...

This is a very popular restaurant and very famous for their sea food menu. The place is always crowded and you find people literally waiting behind tables to find a seat. Service is non existent and slow. Food was good and tasty though.

We dined there on our first night. Delicious curry (best I'd had yet) with lovely warm chapati and good atmosphere. Views of all the bay and loads of cool boats floating past. Phenomenal at sunset. Were recommended (wisely) by our hotelier)

Description
As you sit by the shore, listening to the sound of little waves, watching the quiet reflections on the water on a moonlit night, sipping your favorite drink, you will never think of leaving this place. Seagull is not just a building, which provides you food and drink, but this is a place which gives you a complete dining experience. The hotel stands is a gracious landmark of the city, showcasing contemporary Indian influences along with the country's colonial past. The Hotel Seagull, which we see today, was the brain child of sri V S Krishnan,who was a musician cum businessman. This Hotel was once a residence-cum-furniture maintenance workshop of a French-rosewood exporter named C J Revel, whose business, house and factories were based at Thalaserry. The main structure of this Hotel was a simple residence and the adjacent extensions were remodeling and repairing workshops. Later, krishnan modified this simple residence cum workshop into a magnificient property named "The Hotel Seagull" in 1980. Every corridor and modification of this hotel has a history to say and a story to tell. Travelers with a yen for history and heritage will find Seagull and Fort Kochi engrossing. Over the years, the building stood as a silent witness to the passage of time and the creation of history. The Portuguese, the Dutch, French and the British came and went. The country freed itself and embraced democracy and the ownership of this grand edifice changed hands. Today, it has become a favorite haunt of foreigners. We have taken every care to present you the rich traditions of a bye gone era along with the taste of local flavors.
