2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Whenever I was visited this place, I am eated the Prawn. Quality was Excellent. But when I visited last time on 7th March 2013, I am eated the Prawn, the quality was worst,Prawn meat like a rubber.The Quality are changed. I am suggested to Chef to give Crunchy Prawn not rubber.

“THE PLACE TO DINE WHEN YOU WANT TO SPLURGE !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The place to go to in Mumbai when you are looking for great drinks & fine Mediterranean Cuisine, and in a mood to splurge !
Advance reservations are a must, almost impossible to get on weekends, this is a premier watering hole in the suburbs. Easier to get a booking on a weekday, which is what we did recently.
You can choose from dining alfresco in cool weather, or inside where it's air-conditioned cool but somewhat cramped & risk being bumped by customers or waiters in a hurry - unless you choose to sit with your back to the wall.
There is a good selection of inventive Cocktails & Mocktails along with the usual bar staples, and the wine list is modest with a reasonable selection, but quite pricey by the bottle. The Sangrias, Margaritas & Mojito we'd ordered were uniformly excellent. The staff took a long time to take our starter orders, & we had to repeatedly ask for some more bread for our party of six, but the Mezze platters we ordered were indeed very good. Our Mains were Chargrilled prawns - simply wonderful, tapenade-crusted Salmon - again excellent, & pan-fried river-Sole Meuniere - tasty but over-drenched in Lemon-butter sauce ! The Desserts - Vanilla Panna Cotta, Banoffee Pecan Tart & Caramel Bread pudding were good, but not of the same high std. as the food.
The service can improve, it was surprising to see the few waiters present harried & flustered on a weeknight even to handle a smaller no. of guests !
In short, a very enjoyable dining experience, but the steep prices do tend to sober you up when you pay the bill, so ideal for a special occasion !
