Terrace Grill (closed in monsoon season) offers seafood. They also offer a complimentary sunset cruise for all their in-house guests. Cooking demo in the evenings, tea and snacks before the cruise are some of the added extras you get while staying at the Brunton Boatyard.
Our Opinion : Perhaps one of the best located properties in Cochin and the only property that has sea-view from all their rooms. A bit pricy but is well worth paying the extra if you are looking for that special touch. Great cuisine, friendly staff and great ambience. The ferry next-door can be noisy but rooms have sound proof windows.
