Check out these 8 open-air restaurants in Mumbai
There is no better way to eat than with a breath of fresh air and breathtaking views. Whether you’re looking at the city’s skyline, its glistening coastline, or a bustling shopping street, there’s something magical about dining outside, especially when there’s a nip in the air. For a quiet meal, here are some of Mumbai’s most beautiful open-air restaurants and bars. Here are some of Mumbai’s most attractive restaurants and bars to enjoy an unforgettable meal.
AER – Bar & Lounge, Four Seasons Hotel, Worli
This roof bar on the 34th floor of the Four Seasons Hotel offers stunning views of old and new Mumbai in a natural setting (Haji Ali, the racecourse, the old Mill areas, the new skyscrapers, city lights, and the sea). After you’ve had your fill of the view, relax on the sleek white sofa next to the illuminated circular bar and sip a cocktail. Try the flavorless salt and pepper calamari rings, as well as the Avocado Mash Toast. The sticky, spicy wings of chicken slathered in barbeque sauce, on the other hand, are the hero’s dish.
What’s better than securing a table inside this Juhu hotspot is securing one on the slatted floor deck, which features dreamy cabanas. This seaside restaurant with spectacular views is also ideal for tourists. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and enjoyable. Like chef Rohan D’Souza’s cuisine. Everything you eat is brave and memorable, but a few dishes live on in your dreams. Signature shots on the table include the Zatar cauliflower puree and carrot foam, as well as the barbecue baby ribs flambé. It’s also a pleasure to work with the staff. They lean in close to your table to explain and enjoy the dishes. You obviously enjoy what you’re doing.
Arrive early to secure a seat, then order your first sangria (with perhaps steamed edamame on the side). After that, watch the birds and get lost in the rhythmic wave percussion until you reach the last order.
Restaurants aren’t always about the food; sometimes it’s all about the atmosphere. Gallops is a calm oasis and one of Mumbai’s most charming dining spots, with white picket fences, fairy lights hanging in the breeze from the trees, and candles. Dining here comes with the added benefit of a luxurious green race. Food is similar to service in the ancient world. The fingers are fantastic, and the Seekh Bhutte ki transports you to Chowpatty Beach. But it’s the Chicken A La Kiev that’ll haunt your gullible dreams. A perfectly charred baked Alaska could be a contender for the city’s best dessert.
Cecconi’s, Soho House, Juhu
Visit this stylish but relaxed area at sunset, when wood, rattan panels, and handmade brass lights create a green oasis. Request a window seat for the best view of the undulating waves and the sun below the horizon. It’s the ideal setting for chef Luca D’Amora’s classic Italian fare (think crusty pizzas and moist pasta). The lemon aioli calamari fritti has the perfect amount of salt, crunch, and chewing. With rosemary and charred potatoes, the lambs are slow-cooked and tender. The best dish, however, is an excellent Aperol with a deeply satisfying parma ham and burrata pizza.
Silver Beach Cafe, Bandra
This chic European-style bistro has recently opened its third location in Bandra, with a larger area offering indoor and outdoor seating. Misbah Kapadia, the interior designer, has warmly added wooden tables and chairs to the outdoor area. The curved layout creates the impression of a casual, neighbourhood café where you can grab a quick bite. The extensive menu, on the other hand, includes a variety of delicacies such as asparagus with champagne sauce risotto, sausage-paste chilli eggs, keto-friendly dishes, flourless chocolate turquoise cake, and more.
Asilo, The St Regis Hotel, Lower Parel
Asilo is India’s highest rooftop lounge, with a view of Mumbai. The open-air area is located on the 40th floor of the hotel and provides a bird’s eye view of the sea and cityscape. If you want to book a private area, it also has cabanas and secluded areas. Asilo offers sumptuous food to make your meal memorable, as well as classic and signature cocktails. Tapas, grills, barbecues, kebabs, shawarmas, and other options are available.
Gadda da Vida, Novotel Hotel, Juhu
Another Juhu lounge on our list is Gadda da Vida. The beachfront area is ideal for sunbathers sipping cocktails and sipping wine. If you enjoy watching sunsets, this lounge has a fantastic view as well as a casual and romantic atmosphere. The open-air seating is a popular hangout for locals. The food is a mix of Indian favourites like Jodhpuri aloo Tikki chaat and kalongi fish tikka, tacos, pan-fried scallops, brick oven pizzas, and so on.
Breeze Lounge, Powai
This upscale residential suburb has also become a popular choice for visitors seeking a variety of options. Breeze Lounge, which offers views of the city and Powai Lake, is ideal for a day or some time with friends. Choose dishes from Italy, Mexico, and the Mediterranean, such as quesadillas, hummus, and ravioli, and pair them with your favourite mood. Alternatively, pair a hot soup bowl with sandwiches and salads.
