They don’t just serve great food, but also boast of some of the most beautiful interiors in the restaurant space. This Valentine’s Day, sweep her off her feet by dining here and be blown away by their charm.
Lodi, The Garden Restaurant, Delhi
With our cities expanding, quite so often we long to eat out at a restaurant, which allows us to feel the wind on our faces. So if you are in the capital, drop by at the Lodi – The Garden Restaurant for some al fresco dining. The lush greenery and open sky above will only add character to your experience.
Imagine watching the waves hit the shore every time you take a bite of those souvlaki kebabs. Sitting atop a cliff facing Vagator beach is one of Goa’s most charming restaurants serving Greek food at its best. Make a reservation before dropping in to get the best table.
Mumbai may have a gorgeous coastline, but unfortunately does not own dining spaces situated by the sea. Estella seems to fill that gap. The newest sea-facing lounge in Juhu has a view to die for. Walk in with your date at evening to eat and watch the sun go down the Arabian sea.
How about dipping your feet in water as you two sip on some Margharitas? Cheesy it may seem, but Addah at O Hotel in Koregaon Park offers a unique dining experience. The rooftop restaurant boasts of great views of the city and a menu featuring Indian food. Works perfectly for a date night we say.
Om Made Café, Bangalore
A place with a cheery vibe and Mediterranean charm score high points for us any day. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Koramangala lies Om Made Cafe, which stands out with its spacious open-air dining section. The food is good, the ambience perfect for a lunch date or an early evening coffee meet-up with your favourite person.
Bar Palladio, Jaipur
Nobody can ignore this charming restaurant with blue interiors in Jaipur. Everything about Bar Palladio – from the hand-painted motifs on the walls, the opulent chandeliers to the pretty upholstery – the effort shows. Sit down for a lazy drink or eat in the garden under a star-lit sky – you will not be disappointed.
Indian Accent, Delhi
Set on the lawns of The Manor in Delhi, Indian Accent is the only restaurant from India on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant list. Choose to sit out for a delicious lunch on a winter afternoon or take in the good vibes indoors – it is a place where you can indulge in a fantastic meal with your beau.
Xandari Harbour, Kochi
Situated very close to Fort Kochi is Xandari with spectacular views of the harbour. A 16th century palace that is now converted into a hotel has a view to die for. Go for a swim or enjoy a drink by the infinity pool – take your pick!
Upre by 1559 AD, Udaipur
The best time to visit Upre would be dusk or late evening. Situated on the banks of the Lake Pichola, it offers picturesque views of the City Palace and ghats surrounding the town. Choose either a shamiana or table to be charmed by the vibe of this beautiful restaurant.
Cafe Carte Blanche, Pondicherry
The French quarter in Pondicherry is dotted with charming alleys and pretty cafes. Situated in Hotel de l’Orientis, Cafe Carte Blanche has a lovely French feel, and a menu with a mix of south Indian and French dishes. The colonial vibe is intact and the proof lies in the architecture of this heritage cafe.
