The 200-year old elegant Old Courtyard Hotel was buillt by the Portuguese when Cochin was their window to the spice trade. On summer evenings you can sit around and soak up violin and flute music or clay pot drum rhythms played by local musicians. You can enjoy continental-style cooking under the shaded colonnaded arches any night of the year. Step outside and you have spice shops, Chinese fishing nets, a Dutch palace and India’s oldest church on your doorstep. The ideal base for jumping off tours of South India and all parts Kerala.
The restaurant opens on to the courtyard to serve quality dining in a mellow atmosphere. Fresh seafood caught daily in the picturesque Chinese fishing nets are a specialty. The cuisine covers a delectable range of Kerala, Continental, Mediterranean and Asian flavours. During the season, enjoy live classical music.
