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

The building is a nice and the food very good. InSouthern India service tends to be slow. That is not the case here it is forgetfully slow. On our first evening we were slow to be served and when our meal eventually arrived we noticed a family with young kids who had arrived with us were upset as they didn't... More

This is a busy place with fab food. At times the service suffers because of this but fortunately not the quality of food. The food is a cushion on Indian and Mediterranean. The best tables are outside if you can get one (we could not as we hadn't booked).

When we arrived we were told there was 'no record' of the booking we had made in person two days earlier. We had to sit inside although we had booked outside. This was supposed to be a special treat for our last night in India. Meal was tasty, although we had better in India for a fraction of the price.... More
