Very nice cafe with great ambiance. Serve great coffee. The menu looked good too although we never ate here. Very cool and attentive staff. I would consider staying here if we returned to Kochi in the future

Went for lunch after reading good reviews, ordered a burger, which was the only thing on the menu apart from sandwiches. Took 15 minutes for them to inform me that they were out of fish and meat........left for somewhere else.

Excellent Kiwi / Indian cafe. Excellent wifi and friendly service. We came here twice during our stay in Kochi. Prices are a little higher than other places but the place is very comfortable. There is a great menu and drinks are made with ice from mineral water

This is the best place in Kochi Fort for a healthy breakfast - large fruit salads, muesli and curd with eggs done the way you like and toast with butter and jam. If you're a coffee addict, the espresso is delicious. It has free wifi and is a great place to hang out with comfortable chairs and sofas.

We came several times here for breakfast, and we will definitely recommend it! Great food, really fresh and always with delicious fruit. Cozy and laid-back ambience, you will need time though: service is a bit slow. Good wifi connection! Also, they have a travel desk. For us they organised a driver for a day-trip to Munnar, which all went smoothly.

I have never stayed at this place but yes I went there to see the place for my future stay. It was very nice place; I met the guy who runs this place, he was really cool.

I stayed here with my sister last week and also 3 years a go when I first visited Kerala. The service is impeccable and staff are super friendly and chilled out. There's always music playing and drinks served and its an excellent location to base yourself in prior to exploring the rest of Kerala. The rooms are spacious and clean...

I stayed at Oy's guest house for three nights at the end of January. My first room had bed bugs (!!!) so I had to move to a different one. They have no minimal cleaning standards especially when it concerns the shower and toilets which were quite disgusting. When I changed room I was 'welcomed' by cigarettes butts behind the...

Basic rooms, reasonably clean, friendly owner, fairly cheap. Is right on main road so noisy in front rooms so recommend asking for room at rear of property. Also check if room price includes tax/breakfast. 5 min walk from main strip at fort Cochin.

“There are only three rooms - a/c is not necessary and is hard to control - we found it so cold we asked for it to be switched off after the first night, which then reduced the bill from 1800 or 1600 - we were quoted both figures at different times.... down to 1200. There are frequent power cuts but Oys does not have its own generator.”
