A great little retreat in Chennai...lovely atmosphere and very relaxing. Seems very popular. Cafe is excellent. Just nice to get away from the noise and sit in peaceful gardens. Food is very good. Salads are refreshing and you can get a wide selection of cakes and pastries from their bakery counter. Would recommend.

Amethyst is among the finest cafes in Chennai outside of five star hotels. Very good food, good presentation, superb ambience and moderately expensive prices make this place a must visit. Their soups, salads and pasta are top class.

This is the most beautiful restaurant in Chennai. Really chilled atmosphere in the middle of a garden. Housed in a cottage. The food was average but i would definitely go there for a nice evening for coffee, sandwiches and deserts.

Gladly surprised to find this place when I meet a friend last week in Chennai. It's in the middle of the city but is extremely calm and relaxing. They have both outdoor and indoor sitting. Couldn't shop as we turn up late but did have dinner there. Food wasn't hot enough when served but quality and taste was pretty neat.

Right in the middle of the city ,and beautifully landscaped Amethyst should be on your list if you are in Chennai and want to meet a friend for a quiet evening with some good snacks . The florist at Amethyst is one of the best in Chennai... More

If you want to sit back relax and have a meal in the midst of the hussle and bussle of the city, this is the place, great ambience in between a garden totally avoiding the paa and pee sounds of the horns which blare on the roads. You get some good food, but service is at its pace, since its... More
