I wish i could give them more than 5 stars because I went there on 1st Jan and the staff was overwhelmed with orders but they made sure that they greet everyone with same warmth and smile. Their menu is too unique and elaborate to only visit once.

The ambience and the food choices. A great place to bring families. I took family there for breakfast as well as for dinner. The food was great. Kids loved the choices. Mora than that, there is not many places in Fort Cochin you can get a strong European style Espresso coffee at 9 am. The gallery was an added bonus.

Been to david hall with family & friends, it had an art gallery at the entrance of the hotel . Ambience at the restaurant & bakery was good.

Staff were friendly & knew well what they were selling.

Their innovative probiotic juices were one of a kind and new to me. It was so nice to see the chef making pizzas live in front of our eyes.
Our favourite dishes were Korean chicken & their pizzas( thin but soft crust )

They pastries were one of a kind . Famous mattangerry plum cake was unique.

David hall fits in as a hangout joint for youngsters & a fine dining place.

An excellent place to relax and enjoy the experience of Kochi. Also known as Pandhal café, this café combines an active gallery with indoor and outdoor café seating in a 17th century dutch mansion. Just a few minutes from the sea the café is central for any visitor coming to Fort Kochi. The atmosphere is relaxing and they always play the best 1970s rock music. Staff are attentive, the chef is excellent and I recommend the Sunny side breakfast and for those who like sweets the dark chocolate cakes and French press coffee are exquisite. Gentlemen traveler rates this five out of five.

Wow! This is the place to visit not only for their art display but also to enjoy a meal over chilled beverages. They serve all cuisines but famously known for the pizzas made right in front of your table, if you happen to get that enviable table. They have plenty of beverages and food for the health-conscious. We ordered a glass of pineapple juice and berry lemonade followed by thin crust pepperoni
pizza, finger licking good. Service is excellent. Full marks for ambience, except for the smelly toilet with no ventilation. Beautiful place to spend with friends, over tea, snacks and a delicious meal.

It was built in 1661 by Dutch East India Company. It is believed that Hortus Malabaricus was compiled by the Dutch governor Van Heede and the Ayurvedic physician Itty Achuden here. During the British Colonial period it came under the Jewish ownership and came to be known as David Hall. Today this place is a popular art gallery. A café used to run in the backside garden which has now closed down.
