The Drawing Room, Kochi


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2018 Winner

Location and contact

Situated at the northeastern end of the century old Cochin club, The drawing room is a lovely restaurant that resembles a quaint spanish patio. Enter through the arched doorway into a garden patio that leads to a roofed space with windows to views of the arabian sea and the ships that frequently sail by to and from the harbour nearby. With a menu that leans towards fresh seafood, the restaurant also offers a variety of soups, salads, Tapas style platters and mains. The atmosphere is elegant, yet casual. A quirky melange of scattered furniture, mixed china and whimsical mural art. Interestingly the vibe of the space transforms itself at night from a casual cafe to a space of warmth and elegance.
