I must admit, I was not looking forward to another hotel restaurant meal. Boy was I ever wrong. Fort House is a moderate priced restaurant with a four-star view of the bay and its surroundings. The fish dishes were perfectly cooked and spiced, but not too spicey. And the Fresh Lime sodas went well with the freshness of the fish.... More

I read the reviews and decided to have lunch at the Fort House restaurant. We entered through a lovely garden and were offered a table by the water. Their service was excellent and our lunches arrive promptly. We had a shrimp curry and the garlic shrimp in coconut sauce and a serving of basmati rice. We also ordered fresh lime... More

The pier where we were sitting gave stunning views across the water at sunset and the atmosphere was lovely. Though the service was slightly slower the 2nd time we visited the food was nonetheless delicious and the drinks were lovely too (non-alcoholic). It is well worth a visit if you are staying nearby.

The entrance to this restaurant nothing less than spectacular. Why? It has a beautiful blend of rustic and ancient architecture with nature. A lot of thought has been put in the aesthetics of this place. The views of the sea where you are seated is mesmerizing. And yet I give this place just 1 star. I'm trying to convince myself... More

Food is good. Service a bit slow but acceptable. Price is not cheap. I particularly enjoyed the sea view along the pier. We got to see a family of dolphins swimming by.

Excellent food, not heavy, not too spicy, different from what other restaurants offer. Great service and amazing ambiance with great view Parking is a bit tricky probably the only negative but worth a visit!

On an incredibly hot, humid day (95 degrees, 95 percent humidity), this was a lovely spot for lunch. Sitting in the shade, with a breeze coming off the water, it felt almost cool. The food was very good, in ample portions. As we did through most of our week-long Kerala stay, we stuck with seafood -- a dry pepper fry... More

Will never return again. The appams were horrid and the last lot ( we were late diners yes, but thats no excuse) were chewy and indelible. Everything was lack lustre, uninspired and indifferent.
