Dinning in the courtyard of this hotel is really quite magical and in previous years we have had wonderful food and service here so this year we were looking forward to a special evening but sadly it was not to be. Although the restaurant was not particularly busy the service was sluggish and indifferent and we chose two different starters... More

Beautiful hotel, we had a lunch here. The food was amazing. The swimming pool is right in the middle of the hotel, as soon as you enter and it is not very big.

Have been here before for lunch. Went for dinner. The fish is excellent. Great ambience. Mosquitoes beware! It was a dry day to boot. Both Kerala specialities that one can't blame the restaurant for.

We visited this place for lunch and started at the bar in the first floor. Many art works are on display here. The Barman did not even bother with us and walked and was busy talking with foreign tourist in the restaurant below; a sight I see so often in India. We had to send for him and it really... More

I am writing about the bar at Malabar House, not the restaurant. We have eaten at the outdoor restaurant before and it is nice. But on this trip, we used the upstairs bar several times, and we enjoyed it every time. The bar is a different scene than most of Fort Cochin; if you are looking for local atmosphere this... More

This isn't a fine dining restaurant. Service isn't very good. Food is nice but not sensational. Wish we had gone somewhere more authentic rather than this somewhat safe option. Good points were the bar upstairs before dinner and the live music which we were well back from.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for dinner while staying eat Fort Kochi. I am vegetarian, and I did not think that this would be an issue in India however the menu was fairly limited. They had plenty of seafood and meat options, however. I had the trio of Indian curries (veg) and I found that it was really... More

Great place to have awesome food with good service. Location is easy to find, price is on the high side but quality and taste makes up for it.

We came here 3 times during our stay in Cochi. Lovely grounds, attentive service and tasty (if pretty expensive) food. Our final time here was on NYE. Lots of nice entertainment layed on, but the set menu for this was a little underwhelming. Definitely worth a visit, even if just for a lazy glass of wine. It will be Indian... More
