Restaurant 51 is located in mattachery facing the vampandu back water. Nice food and service. Most exiting is the view and ambience.

This amazing location couldn‘t be better. One of the most modern restaurants in Fort Kochi. The service of the young guys was simply perfect in comparison with all the other restaurants. The food was okay, my salad was a lil bit Boring but the main...was tasty. The negative point, and this was the most disappointed thing in most of the restaurants, that they couldn‘t sell any alcohol or wine. If I eat like this for dinner, with this atmosphere, this view and this kind of food, alcohol should be not missing. Please go for the license because it‘s so necessary to offer this.More

The restaurant is part of Xandari Harbour Hotel and has tables set indoors or on the terrace, as we were the only diners when we arrived, we a party of 3 decided to sit on the outside terrace overlooking the river. The ambiance and decor...throughout was very good, with good attentive service. There was a good selection of both Asian and European dishes on the menu. We ordered the Calamari with Blackened Vegetables and Salad, Gourd and Mushroom Curry and Mattanchery Chicken Curry complimented with Rice and Dosa bread. All of the meals very good, especially the Mattanchery Chicken Curry, which was nicely spiced. Overall a very nice dining experience in a perfect setting.More

We went to restaurant 51 for the ambiance with the a lower expectation on the quality of the food. Our realization upon arriving that the ambiance at night wasn’t up to par, and the food didn’t taste great at all. Our curry was reheated, our...tapioca chips were stale, and our minestrone soup was flavourless. For the record, this is an alcohol free entity that serves really good thirst quenchers and has an amazing quality of service with its friendly staff. Do not go here for the food, we were disappointed even with low expectations to begin with. However, do visit the place for a decent view and great alcohol free drinks served up by very friendly and attentive staff.More

Yes, we happened to stop here for breakfast, on one of the days in Fort Kochi. The restaurant is right next to water, very helpful staff, and very unique ambiance. They have a small corridor with all the spices on display with its history explained!...The clear glass bottles with lemon, mint, coconut, pineapple pieces inside were really there to drink and it was very nice. Not to forget, the break fast itself (egg benedict, scrambled and uttappam) was delicious.More

We happened on this place while walking back to our hotel and stopped for a milkshake overlooking the water. Despite being the only customers, the drinks took around 20 minutes to arrive. However, they were delicious and we really enjoyed the views from the terrace....Stunning modern pool area - we would consider staying here as it was a real oasis of calm in the centre of the city.More
