Nothing pretentious here, good place for local fare, well presented and very good to boot. Long way from haute cuisine, but was fresh and we enjoyed it all. Waiter insisted on showing me the various fish to be sure I was happy with our choice. We were. Plus, they serve wine and beer, which now Kerala has gone dry, is... More

Though the restaurant was packed with people, we managed to get a table (for 2) very quickly and that too right by the sea. Needless to say, the views are spectacular and there's the cool sea breeze that relaxs you. The food is great too. We ordered for a few dishes and we're surprised with the quantity. I had anticipated... More

We came here for lunch with a local friend. After paying tourist prices for meals at the pricey hotels we were staying at we were pleasantly surprised by the value for money here. The food was great and very fresh. Staff were friendly and polite.

This place is very busy as it has a great location on the water and liquor licence which can be challenging to find in the region. Food IS good but tables are filthy, FILTHY. We were told no reservation taken and arrived to find tables reserved! The manager is the rudest person I have ever encountered. When questioned about the... More

The location next to the water is really good. Food can be improved. It was a bit too oily. Service was slow which could be because it was a very busy day...

We spend two hours in this place and still didn't get served our complete order and whatever was served after an hr of wait it was uncooked. Extremely poor service and I sincerely don't recommend anyone to come here.

As you sit by the shore, listening to the sound of little waves, watching the quiet reflections on the water on a moonlit night, sipping your favorite drink, you will never think of leaving this place. Seagull is not just a building, which provides you food and drink, but this is a place which gives you a complete dining experience. The hotel stands is a gracious landmark of the city, showcasing contemporary Indian influences along with the country's colonial past. The Hotel Seagull, which we see today, was the brain child of sri V S Krishnan,who was a musician cum businessman. This Hotel was once a residence-cum-furniture maintenance workshop of a French-rosewood exporter named C J Revel, whose business, house and factories were based at Thalaserry. The main structure of this Hotel was a simple residence and the adjacent extensions were remodeling and repairing workshops. Later, krishnan modified this simple residence cum workshop into a magnificient property named "The Hotel Seagull" in 1980. Every corridor and modification of this hotel has a history to say and a story to tell. Travelers with a yen for history and heritage will find Seagull and Fort Kochi engrossing. Over the years, the building stood as a silent witness to the passage of time and the creation of history. The Portuguese, the Dutch, French and the British came and went. The country freed itself and embraced democracy and the ownership of this grand edifice changed hands. Today, it has become a favorite haunt of foreigners. We have taken every care to present you the rich traditions of a bye gone era along with the taste of local flavors.
