The restaurant (and hotel) are beautifully and simply redone so it is a v nice place to sit and enjoy a fancy meal. The food was all v interesting, with flavors that we hadn't had yet during our trip to Kerala which was also welcome. The service is also as sophisticated as expected. The only issue is that some of... More

The place is suited for those who wish to sample kerala portugese fusion food without the high spice quotient. The food is tasty but gentle on the stomach. The place is suited to celebrate special occaions like a quiet romantic dinner with soft live music. The service is excellent with the waiters always available to provide helpful tips. The place...

Went here with the idea of seeing how well my wife can produce their 'First class railway mutton curry' from Rick Steins Indian cookbook. I have to say she deserves a 5* review. The History restaurant was very good with some lovely prawns recommended as a starter and 3 different mains (including the mutton) that were all enjoyable. The service... More

From the moment you arrive at the Brunton Boatyard you know you are somewhere special. The place is steeped in history, the menu is like reading a history book too! Every dish we ordered was full of care and effort and the tastes were fantastic! The staff were attentive, knowledgable and smart. We really enjoyed our evening and felt like... More

We had dinner here and it was quite good. The terrace overlooks the Arabian sea and there's no better setting to have a meal. We had the traditional naadan chicken curry and meen polichathu and it was yummy.

We booked in for an early dinner as we had an early start in the morning. What a treat. Executive Chef Ajeeth Janardhanan looked after us and it was wonderful. We both only ordered a main meal but to our surprise we were given an Amuse Bouche of calamari followed by prawn bisque before our mains of fish of the... More

We ate there on four occaisions during our stay at Bruntons Boathouse and were pleased that each time a different menu was offered. (The History Restaurant has three different menus that are rotated and the Terrace Grill has a different fish menu.) The food paid a lot of attention to the historic cultural connections of the past and therefore provided... More

Dinner at The History was disappointing. Food was average but the bar had very few drinks available, the excuse being that there is a forthcoming ban on alcohol which as I understand does not apply to 5* hotels
