Restaurant Review: The Bubble Cafe in Kochi

Bubble Cafebubble cafe

The Bubble Cafe is located on Marine Drive at The Gateway Hotel. The hotel boasts five stars and has a beautiful view of Vembanad Lake.  The Bubble Cafe serves a buffet for lunch with international cuisine including, biryani, grilled lamb, steamed veggies, wide variety of curries both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, bread basket, and fresh appam, chapathi, and other Indian breads upon request, etc.  Desserts include pyasam, strawberry ice cream, chocolate mouse, fresh fruit, etc.  There is a wide variety of drinks and fresh squeezed juice including watermelon, pineapple, grape, and sweet lime.

Be aware that sweet lime is not lime-aid.  I ordered the sweet lime and it was actually orange juice called mosumbi.  We had the waiter and manager come over so we could tell them that this wasn’t sweet lime and they insisted it was. Liji had a conversation with them in Malayalam that started to get him frustrated.  They offered to get me something else, but I didn’t want to waste the orange juice because it was pretty good, it just wasn’t what I thought I had ordered.  So I drank the juice and Liji came home and looked up sweet lime on the internet only to find that it is actually orange juice (mosumbi). So now we know for next time.

Price for 2 lunch buffets, 2 fresh juices, 1 bottle water: Rs 1254.74 = $26.04

Over all I give this lunch buffet at The Bubble Cafe 3.5/5  I give the service a 4.5/5
