Seagull at Fort Kochi used to be must visit place for ages, it continues to be one even it lost its sheen after Kerala’s ridiculous liquor policy that impacted tourism negatively. We visited the place yet another time last week to recall old time memories. Location is superb, it overlooks the Kochi backwaters, port and you can see the lit... More

Ate here twice while in Kochi - try the fish fried. They are fresh that day and you can pick what you want. A bit more pricey in Indian standards but worth it!

Wandered around during the day looking for a restaurant for dinner. Liked the ambience and the view. Returned in the evening by auto rickshaw after the Kathakali dancing and very busy although early. Got last table on the covered terrace. Tasty traditional dishes and reasonably priced. I had the crab. Very pleasant evening and swift journey back to hotel.

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.
