Old Harbour Hotel

Fort Cochin, Kerala

The fully-fledged restaurant has seating spreading from inside out to the walled garden and pool area. There’s no A/C in the restaurant so it can get hot both indoors and out.

*It’s worth noting here that the hotel has excellent eco credentials: solar power is used partially for both hot water and electricity.

Weather permitting, the garden area in the evening is the place to be: softly lit with candles and lovely diamond shaped lights on a string, it’s a very romantic setting and many guests eat here every night.

There’s a seafood barbeque in the evenings (which is first-rate) and cool Indo-fusion music plays in the background, occasionally displaced by live musicians.

Prices are on the high side but in keeping with the price bracket of the hotel’s accommodation, so this should not come as a surprise. Portions are big, there’s no cutting back in the name of haute cuisine.

Note that there is no dedicated bar, though drinks can be served to your table.

Continental and Indian dishes, with the latter being geared towards seafood and Keralan cuisine. We eyed the Keralan thali but instead enjoyed a nice, light pasta and a very tasty pumpkin soup.

Breakfast is a mix of both Continental and south Indian: eggs, bacon, juice, toast, cereals, idli or dosa, and good tea and coffee.

Good selection for vegetarians.

Dining nearby

There are some great little cafes around Fort Cochin, best known of all are Kashi Café on nearby Burgar Street (actually run by Old Harbour) and Teapot Café on Peter Celli Street. Both are great spots for breakfast, snacks and lunch.

For a first-class dining experience do try the restaurant at Malabar House on Parade Road.

For a really unique experience buy some fish at the seafront and get it cooked at a street restaurant on Tower Road.
