The History & Terrace Grill (International)

Kochi is a melting pot of cultures, and the menu at this restaurant inside The Brunton Boatyard Hotel reflects this. You’ll find a diverse mix of food, from Syrian roast duck to Keralan fish curry, and the intriguingly named ‘First Class Railway Mutton Curry’. Time your visit for sunset, when the views from the harbour-side terrace are fabulous.
