Fantastic ambiance. Classy service. Great Food. The decor is old world and there a few antiques worth spending a little time over in the dinning area.

The History is a great restaurant and the chef has done wonders with the menu. We spent a great time just reading and enjoying the menu - each dish had a little history, a provenance and details of the chef's interpretation. Very evocative! The First Class Railway Mutton took me back to the railway journeys of my childhood - and... More

We were very disappointed as the restaurant is not at all great. The food was very average. The waiters are below average. This place is not for Indians as they never bothered Indian customers and their requirements. There are many better places around.

Got in to an empty restaurant next day ( which was never full till we left !!!). Ordered our drinks and thought we would enjoy them before... More

I would like to add to Robert Johnson's review below, the content of which I completely agree with - - Made a reservation and asked for outdoor seating if available, was told there was no outdoor seating in the restaurant. We arrived at 7:30 to find an empty outdoor seating area that was apparently fully booked, and we were offered... More

There are two restaurants in the Brunton Boatyard Hotel: the History (old-style traditional indoors restaurant with mahogany panelling - a bit empty) and the Terrace, which is on an outside terrace, with an entrance through the History restaurant). The Terrace is a fish restaurant. You get to choose your fish (all very fresh) and it was very well presented and... More

A nice shady place to have a simple lunch and to watch the boat traffic go by. Waterside terrace in an old British colonial era boatyard.

Having enjoyed numerous great meals in Cochin we were excited to try History restaurant at Brunton Boatyard hotel. The instant we walked in we knew in trouble. The restaurant opens at 7.30pm. We arrived (2 of us) at 7.30pm (table booked in advance) to an empty restaurant only to be told by the stern restaurant manager that all the tables... More
