    Make V-Day Special With A Sumptuous Meal By The Pool, Under The Stars At This Hotel!

    What Makes It Awesome

    Chilly evenings, grill and barbeque by the pool under the stars is one of the best date night options we can ever give. Yes, we are always high on love. Where do you find a spot like this in Chennai? The Gateway Hotel IT Expressway has a new pop-up restaurant by the pool. Moonlighting, soothing music, laid back atmosphere, free-flowing gourmet steaks, and grills, with a regional twist. Can the night get any younger?  Don't get surprised by the small setup, the team of chefs belts out some of the best barbeque in town. We started our meal with Caesar salad and Beetroot Carpaccio which tasted crunchy thanks to the rocket lettuce and walnuts balsamic punch.  The grill menu is a non-vegetarains' paradise. They have specials like Sundried Tomato and Caper Garlic Prawns, Barbecued Squids Jumbo Rings, Grilled Lobster Thermidor - Mustard & Sparkling Wine Flavored, and Moroccan Spiced Lamb Roast. We give the Barbecued Pesto Chicken Skewers a thumbs up for its spicy flavours. The meat was soft and taste incredible with wine.  Whoever had a problem with broccoli overdose? Get them grilled, dipped in cheese sauce, and eat away to ecstasy. As for the marination, choose from different styles like tandoori, harissa, Moroccan, Spanish, Mongolian, and / Mustard Mushroom. We absolutely loved the Mediterranean Grilled vegetables that came with stuffed tomatoes, multi-pepper, baby corn, mushroom and vegetables, zucchini skewers.  You also get to choose fomr their selection of freshly oven baked bread rolls - Bagel, focaccia, ciabatta, grissini, lavash, rye, multigrain, whole wheat, and garlic bread with herbs.  Once you are done mascaring these exotic grills and barbeques, move on to the dessert counter. We had the Mango Mascarpone Cheese Cake (this melts in your mouth with a mango after taste), Selection of Forest Berry Tart (a little sweet and sour), Coconut Chocolate Opera (how many coconuts is too many coconuts? We loved this one that didn't have a coconut overdose), and Dark Chocolate Mousse (our pick because we love chocolate more than our own lives). 

    What Could Be Better

    The meal is only grills and barbeque. It's a pure European experience, don't expect the usual main course.
