Dine Under The Stars: Outdoor Restaurants To Check Out With Bae


    Eating under the stars or out in the open-air has its own charm. A place to eat with a perfect outdoor seating not only sets the mood right but also gives us a common topic to kickstart a conversation: the view! So, here are some outdoor seating restaurants you must visit when you are on a date next!

    Estella, Juhu

    Estella, a lounge on Juhu Tara road serves amazing food, delicious cocktails and most of all, has an amazing view of Juhu beach that it affords. Estella boasts of being the first modern Australian restaurant. Their menu marries Australian essentials with Asian cuisine, and it’s a surprisingly good match.

    The Goose and Gridiron, Fort

    A pub, an outdoor café or the entrance to a secret society, The Goose and Gridiron is more than what meets the eye. The menu has a bit of everything, from your classic pub food – fish and chips, messy fries and more. They’ve experimented a little with the classic dishes too.

    The Marina Upper Deck, Colaba

    The Marina Upper Deck remains one of our favourite rooftop cafes with a wondrous view of the sea, especially when the rain comes pouring down. You can get everything from the usual suspects – paneer tikka, galouti kebabs, tandoori chicken, calamari fish, garlic bread, Bombay masala french fries and more. They’ve got continental as well as Asian food up for grabs as well.

    Cecconi's, Santacruz

    Everyone in Mumbai by now knows SoHo House. After all, it's the paparazzi's favourite. While SoHo House may be a members-only space, Cecconi's, their classic Italian restaurant, is open to all. You want to make the most of the weather sitting by their sea-facing tables. If you're a fan of sea-side restaurants and Italian food makes your heart skip a beat, then there's no reason why you don't need to visit Cecconi's. Go here and make the most of their food and ambience, and keep your cameras handy! 

    Shell Out: INR 3,000 for two 

    AER, Four Seasons

    AER is on the 34th floor of Four Seasons hotel, and has a gorgeous view of Mumbai. They play great lounge music that is loud enough to groove to but soft enough to be able to hold a conversation over without having to yell, ‘what?’ multiple times. If you're confused about what to wear, the dress code here is smart casuals, and men, we'd advise you to wear full pants and closed shoes. Ladies, keep it smart and keep it stylish. With a view like the one AER's offers, you can sip on some drinks and watch the sunset. 

    Shell Out: INR 4,500 for two

    The Dome, Intercontinental Marine Drive

    Whether you’re a tourist or a city dweller, you must visit the Dome. An open-air restaurant, you should book the table with the view of Marine Drive much in advance.  A good glass of wine and the perfect view will just add to the experience.
