Mondegar is also on my must visit list when in Mumbai. I love to spend time here soaking in the Mario Miranda painting that covers all the walls of the cafe and generally the chilled out spirit that the place seems to exude. I especially enjoy the music that plays in the juke box - you can play your favourite number too by paying just 5 Rs. per request. The food is OK, and the service is prompt. At times, you may have to wait for a table to get free.

Thank Karishma K

Cafe Mondegar is one of my favorite restaurants in Mumbai. The atmosphere is wonderful: great music from all eras playing over the speakers, beautifully painted walls, a diverse clientele, and fun waiters. I visited twice in May 2013 and was quite happy with both meals (a chicken dish and a nonveg sampler with chicken and fish cooked in a variety of styles). Great prices and good value in food. After eating we were able to stay a while to drink. A truly fun place for those looking to relax after a long day of sightseeing in South Bombay.

I visited it just yesterday...while shopping in Colaba...every single food item or drinks we ordered was horrible...
We ordered grilled sausages...the sauce was too sweet, omelette sandwich - was just ok, vegetarian arrabiata pasta - sauce tasted of vine but the staff refused of adding it, it was horrible tasting anyway, chicken lollipops - they were just ok but bright orange looking, courtesy the added color, which was a put off. Hot coffee hardly had coffee and cold coffee was not cold and thick.

Every inch available in restaurant has a chair and table, it's cramped like hell, the place is frequented by foreigners but for us locals, we found it not good enough...

Music plays only on the juke box, so if someone pays then its ok, else it becomes too noisy.

Service also is very slow

Cafe Mondegar, Mumbai is one of the hotspots of Colaba. This is a great watering hole for both thirsty travellers and revellers. We had the (mis) fortune of being there on a wrong day. The wait was long and the queue was unending because after all, was a Saturday evening!

After been offered the 'inside' cabin to accommodate ourselves (to which we politely refused) we were given the front facing table which was occupied for a very long time. A 'stand out' wait for almost an hour and we got this much coveted table for ourselves for a nice long drink. Believe me it was a great wait! The cafe is full of youngsters, ex-pats, wannabes, etc of the city and outside.

The front tables are recommended to watch the outside action while drinking, including the restless long queues of people staring at you and wanting to throw you out ! Great place for a drink and the Kingfisher draft beer jar is recommended while you wait-out the waiting and jeering crowd!

Go early on a Saturday evenings to enjoy standing and also watching the long queues...a must drink place.

One of the best cafe in Mumabi, loved it, went there in happy hours, nice snacks and atmosphere, went there on sunday night, had to wait for a bit, outside the cafe, but it was worth it.
DJ plays awesome tracks, walls are painted beautifully, if you drink and you are in mumbai its a must to try.
