This cafe/ restaurant is inside the beautifull garden of Rossitta's Wood Castle hotel but everybody can acces it. The menu is very varied and I am sorry that I did not have enough days to taste everything. The food is simply amazing! 10/10! The chefs...put a lot of love in their work and you can clearly taste that ! I would not hesitate to come back to Kochi again, just for the food! The waiting staff too, are super friendly and do a great job! For vegetarians; On the menu there are plenty of great vegetarian dishes too, and you should definately try the lemon koriander soup!More

A few years ago this place offered middling fusion food and rather haplessly tried to combine Indian with Mexican cuisine. For a year now, the new chef, Althaf, has been setting the standard for healthy, fresh-produce based Kerala style-cuisine at affordable places at Warehouse Café...& Restaurant. Althaf is a cook by passion. He learned his craft from his mother, refined it in college and got his training at Brunton Boatyard, a five-star hotel in Fort Kochi. For a few years he had his own restaurant together with a group of friends on Vasco da Gama square, but the land lady terminated their contract, and that place is a chi-chi pastry shop with a chi-chi gallery attached to it now. Instead, Althaf and his crew have moved into Warehouse, and they are making this place one of the the best Kerala cuisine places in Kochi in the affordable price range (Brunton is also good, but much more expensive). Althaf makes it a point to use only fresh local produce and avoid additives. The head waiter will always recommend coconut prawn curry because it is his personal favorite (but it takes a lot of preparation, and the head waiter's prawn curry fetish is beginning to go on the chef's nerves). But really anything on this list is great. I had the local fish curry, which features the catch of the day rather than some older fish held over because nobody ordered it the day before; I also had the beef stew with curry leaves; and of course the coconut prawn curry. Which means I returned there for three days in a row, once for dinner and twice for lunch.. All meals were simply excellent, and even more than that: great sensory experiences. At affordable prices.More

Just had a lovely meal at Warehouse. Was with my Mum (79) and daughter (18). Had calamari to start, very fresh and fried perfectly. Mum had Fosh Coconut Curry, I had Kerala Chickpea Curry and daughter Chicken Masala. All the dishes were very tasty, with...lovely chappatis and some coconut rice for Mum. Plenty of choice for veggies, seafood lovers and meat eaters! Also very good value! Had no room for dessert. Decor is nice, in a small courtyard and outside with fans which kept us cool. Washroom were clean but pretty basic, pretty much par for the course in restaurants outside big hotels here in Kochi as far as I can tell.More

OMG it’s by far the BEST place to eat and drink near Princess St precinct. Forte Kochi. Called Warehouse Cafe but locals call it Rossitta’s. All the ex-pats go here as they know. Better than the other cafe / restaurant hands down. I won’t mention...names but don’t queue for hours at the famous cafe round the corner, Superb food & ambience and I’m very fussy. Every meal has different flavours.,,,beautiful grilled fish. Indian meals but not the normal stuff you get everywhere else. Loads of different rice options too to suit each meal. Ask the waiter to help you order the right accompaniments. Fresh juices. No MSG or other nasties, everything is super fresh & prepared individually so it can take time if it’s busy but well worth the wait. I went 3 nights in a row. Cash only. No credit cards but totally professional. Couldn't fault this place.... https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g297633-d2394452-r873843543-Rossitta_Garden_Restaurant-Kochi_Cochin_Ernakulam_District_Kerala.html#More

Been here twice and it has been some of the best food we’ve had in india. We’ve had lemon rice, appam, black chickpea curry, veg stew and veg khurma. All incredible and they were accommodating with making everything vegan, they had excellent understanding of what...vegan meant. Highly recommend!More

The food at this place is simply divine! The restaurant is tucked away in the courtyard of the Rossita Wood Castle Hotel and has a perfect tranquil ambience. Great fresh lassis and an amazing butter chicken dish. Nice and simple. The chef is very helpful...and friendly, even sharing his recipe!More

This is a beautiful restaurant/cafe, set inside a courtyard. The food and service were fantastic. We enjoyed a Prawn Masala and a Coco Fish curry and both were absolutely brilliant, the tastiest food we have had in India so far. The waiter was nice and...attentive and the chef, Altaf, came and spoke to us after our meal which was a nice touch. The food and drink are great value for money.More
