I recently had dinner at the Malabar House which is a highly prized location and well known in Fort Kochi. The name Relais & Chateaux should alone stand for 5 star food and service. The food was delicious and really nice - with a twist of modern cuisine and being differnt - which is great. The service however was terrible and as a single female traveller you´re treated like the last person. Very last and remote table - slow and little service and not up to the hotels standards. The next day i had dinner at a differnt place which was not as fancy but wonderful service.

The setting of this restaurant was lovely. We went here expecting Indian fine dining and were very disappointed! Portions were exceptionally small and the flavours were nothing special. The waiting staff were very friendly as is the case in India but their standard of training was the worst we had in our 3 weeks in India! Our deserts were being served whilst there were still remnants of our starters left on the table! Value for money..it was the worst meal we had throughout our stay in Kochin.

We eat here for Xmas dinner and it was not good. The indian part of menu was fine and then they had roast turkey and xmas pudding, both really bad. They would have been better to have good indian cuisine rather than try that. Especially for the price . Also they do not serve spirits.

We visited twice because the food was so good, if you pick the right night they have live music which adds to the atmosphere, would recommend

A must to dine in when you visit Fort Kochi, Kerala, India. We called in a couple of times for a beer on our way back to our residence and were so impressed we decided to dine there. The food, service and ambiance were all superb so we went back again and again. Such a high level we expected to pay over the odds but we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth a visit!
