“Almost there but not quite”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I was there on a national holiday for lunch with my wife. The place was quite crowded but did not seem so. that was a plus. I hate places that seem like there is no place to eat. The decor was quite nice down to the mosaic floor which seems very mid eastern. The place obviously had a up-market feel about it. Nice. The menu arrived but disappointingly, just one. For a place of this appearance, I would have expected a menu per person, at least where there are just two people. Anyway, I asked for another and got it promptly. I ordered a chicken shawarma, a roasted moroccan fish and some lamb kebabs. The fish was decent, the shawarma was a a little too sour and could have been a little more flavoured (please note not more spicy, more flavoured). The lamb was also decent. One thing is that the portions are quite good. We had two mocktails (since it was a dry day) which were well prepared and presented. One thing I must mention here. I am not an expert on middle east/Mediterranean food. To me it seemed more like basic north Indian food. They do have a Italian portion in their menu which I did not try. The service was good. The waiters knew the dishes and explained them well as we ordered. They were always discretely present. Finally down to the cost. For the kind of food, the ambience and the class of restaurant, it wasn't too bad. Slightly on the higher side but tolerable. Worth a visit.

“Sunday night out, left a lot to be desired !”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

We went for a Sunday Night Out, but overall experience left a lot to be desired!

Situated on the 4rth floor of Mani Square Mall located on the EM Bypass just beside Apollo Gleneagles Hospital is supposed to be a Wine n Dine Mediterranean affair.

Access and Car parking : Easy and ample. If you can locate M S Mall,you would find Mio Amore and car parking is the Mall's huge parking facility at the rear. Sunday there is usually a crowd though.

Decor : Minimalistic. The lanterns hanging from the ceiling adds a tad of glam. Eating Plates are a peculiar red,yellow and blue color - looks very cheap. Cutlery are plain ordinary.

Food : Usually there is a buffet spread even on weekends. They have a facility to cook as per your wishes,but mostly its a fixed menu on the buffet,with frequent chance of serving bowls becoming empty. We had to remind them to replenish the bowls countless times. Taste is not exactly Mediterranean and avoid Mutton Shish kebab at any cost,its just pathetic. Desert was Indian in a restaurant which serves Mediterranean food !

Price : Expensive for what they have on offer. A very so-so experience.

“Good ambience but average food”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I had been to this place few times mostly because its located near my office.The ambience is good and when it had first started the menu looked interesting.I happen to try out few of their lebanese salads and other dishes.....they are pretty bland which is sad as the place looked promising.
