Dropped in for dinner last night. There was a very limited menu available and the food was fairly unremarkable. We ate the very small portions paid and left ..... to go find somewhere to EAT! Cheap but ultimately no value. The Fort area is riddled with restaurants, go find one!

Took me a long time to find this place on TripAdvisor, cause it also goes by another name: Café Green, secret garden for a peaceful mind. All the names are correct: it's a lovely peaceful garden. The friendly owner has a vision and is setting up his place step by step with the funds he has. The offered food is... More

Adorable little hidden garden restaurant in fort kochi. Peaceful and lovely, gorgeous gardens. Staff are great and sweet and the whole thing feels authentic even though it's pretty touristy. Delicious food comes out on Great big banana leaves.

It is a very good place especially for couples. The place is not much crowded and not noisy, ideal fro having sweet conversations. The owner is really good and friendly, she even gives classes if you need, food is awesome.

We had dinner at this place on recommendation of our local tour guide and we all had to agree that the food was amongst the best we'd had in all of Southern India. We ordered different curries, breads and rice which were all fantastic and finished with a divine dessert of banana in hot sugar syrup. Service was great -... More

Me and my sister were in Maria's cooking class with German couple. Maria is an excellent teacher, patiently she told us about spices and how to use them. We made both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food and they all tasted just great. I totally recommend this place. Hope I can come back to another class.

We ate breakfast here 2 days in a row because the service was so nice, and the food was good too. One of the better cups of coffee I found in Kochi, and the fruit was fresh. George, the owner, was very nice and super knowledgable about the area. The garden is quiet and secluded, a nice escape from the... More

This garden cafe is our home when we visit Fort Cochin as the family who own it are generous, warm and welcoming. The garden itself is full of spices where we are served wonderful homemade food, always freshly cooked to order. George knows a lot of local history and he makes interesting conversation if asked. Maria cooks the breakfasts and... More
