We visited the Fort House restaurant whilst staying in Kochi. The situation is lovely, the gardens peaceful and the staff welcoming. To look out at the harbour whilst eating good fresh home cooked Keralan food was a delight.

I ordered grilled fish which was described as served in olive oil and lemon. When it came, it was covered in a thick creamy sauce. So completely NOT as described in the menu.

The staff were very polite and took it away. When they returned the fish was minus the creamy sauce. It was tasty but overcooked and my suspicion is that they just recycled the piece they'd given to me earlier.

The dhal was decent, not amazing.

On the plus side, it was very reasonably priced and a nice location overlooking the water.

great garnish works.The food is marvelous according to goa standards. We enjoyed athenic kerala prawn curry in jumbo prawns cost per plate was very reasonable and quantity was good for two. The white rice with kachia moru was the perfect meal for the afternoon

Fort House restaurant? - An awesome place to spend your evenings in Cochin, dreaming away on the cozy pier by candlelight, watching big ships and small boats passing by, feasting on delicious home style South Indian sea food and vegetable curries in coconut milk. Lots of gentle sea breeze - a great place to relax and a greater place to eat! We also saw that the Hotel Fort House with its exotic garden and cute neat rooms would be a great place to stay - just out of the ordinary!

We just happened to stay at this lovely hotel recommended to us by friends. During our ten- day stay at this very special garden hotel, we ate at a few other places. However we were gratefully happy to come back to eat at the Fort House restaurant. We just couldn't resist the lovely fish curry, pork vidaloo, dal, aubergine curry, just to name a few. Authentic freshly prepared food, friendly caretakers, obliging service, and of course their peaceful romantic atmosphere by the water made it the most enjoyable place in India for us.
