A very busy restaurant one of the few in Kerala that serves beer and wine, probably the reason why it had people queing at the entrance. Lots of locals use this restaurant as well as the tourists. Always a good sign. If you want a harbour view table it would be best to book in advance. Food and service I... More

By the seaside, calm waters, gently floating boats and in the evening the birds flying and gliding gracefully - sitting with your companion, a glass of wine and contemplating, What a quiet delight!

I can't say much about the food as the service was so bad that we had to get up and leave - we ordered a beer, waited for 15 minutes, got a bottle, asked for glasses which did not come for another 15 minutes till the beer became warm.. we kept calling the waiters who were passing us and finally...

The restaurant has tantalizing view of the back water with floating ships and boats. It serves very good seafood with wine and beer. The service part is disgusting. They have few number of waiters and hence we have to wait patiently for a waiter to arrive in front our table.

My tuk tuk driver recommended this restaurant, and I enjoyed it so much I returned. The quality of the food is high, the prices are low, and the seaside atmosphere is great. Very casual and friendly, and the food both times was wonderful, if not more than I could eat! Had to go easy the second time, as portions were... More

The restaurant is in heart of Fort Kochi by the side of the lake and the cuisines, especially choices of seafood are awesome. The main advantage is that we can have fresh seafood and other dishes are also nice. Moderately crowded always since the restaurant is famous and in prime location, they always keep the quality of the food they... More

Had 2 meals here while we were there, as this restaurant was recommended by a friend. It is by the water and is always very packed with diners. Service is average but food was worth the wait. Don't expect super-duper service by the waiters... The seafood is fresh but the breads (naan, paratha, chappati) are mediocre. We had the prawns,... More

The food here is overpriced and mediocre at best. We ordered the fish and shrimp which were on display in the display fridge. After placing the order, however, we were informed that the fish was "booked" by another guest at the restaurant. We observed that only one more guest entered the restaurant at that time and their order took precedence... More

As you sit by the shore, listening to the sound of little waves, watching the quiet reflections on the water on a moonlit night, sipping your favorite drink, you will never think of leaving this place. Seagull is not just a building, which provides you food and drink, but this is a place which gives you a complete dining experience. The hotel stands is a gracious landmark of the city, showcasing contemporary Indian influences along with the country's colonial past. The Hotel Seagull, which we see today, was the brain child of sri V S Krishnan,who was a musician cum businessman. This Hotel was once a residence-cum-furniture maintenance workshop of a French-rosewood exporter named C J Revel, whose business, house and factories were based at Thalaserry. The main structure of this Hotel was a simple residence and the adjacent extensions were remodeling and repairing workshops. Later, krishnan modified this simple residence cum workshop into a magnificient property named "The Hotel Seagull" in 1980. Every corridor and modification of this hotel has a history to say and a story to tell. Travelers with a yen for history and heritage will find Seagull and Fort Kochi engrossing. Over the years, the building stood as a silent witness to the passage of time and the creation of history. The Portuguese, the Dutch, French and the British came and went. The country freed itself and embraced democracy and the ownership of this grand edifice changed hands. Today, it has become a favorite haunt of foreigners. We have taken every care to present you the rich traditions of a bye gone era along with the taste of local flavors.
