We had a candlelit dinner on the jetty, watching the boats go past, the locals enjoying food on a neighbouring jetty. Good choice of food, suited our unadventurous 12-year old as well as those in our party who prefer Kerala food. Bit of a splurge for us, compared to our usual local cafes, but well worth it for views and setting.
Location: Right opposite the Kathakali show we attended at River Green, and then we enjoyed walking back to our accommodation by Parade ground.

The service is a little slow, but they make it up with the food they serve. Its fresh and tasty. The ambience is very nice. should go a little early in th evening as the place gets full.

This was our most expensive dinner in Fort Kochi but the ambience was great - we had a table on the jetty overlooking the harbour, which gave a cool and welcome breeze in the evening. The food was really tasty, though portion sizes were small. It was worth the expense for the experience.

Amazing food, great place to have fresh fish but watch out when they say "not very spicy" my Vindaloo was well cooked but very hot, even by my standards. Ate here at least three times and enjoyed every meal.

this is not the cheapest restaurant in Kochi but its outside terrace is lovely and the food was delicious. The restaurant is now named the Fort House restaurant (not Arca Nova) which could be confusing to find when the street lights go out - as they frequently do with the power cuts in Kerala.
