What we thought of it: Great food, better drinks and the who's who of the sporting, film and ramp world make this place a favourite with the suburbian as well as the south Bombay crowd. Make reservations if you want a table, or hang out at the bar and groove to the hip lounge music. The Mediterranean theme has been beautifully executed by the decor and this is complemented by the food and the beautiful people.
Definitely one of our favourite places in the city.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant and hence was keen to visit it. However, I was sorely disappointed and so was my friend who had visited the place soon after it was opened and had raved about it.....the food was medicore and a trifle over priced ...maybe because it boasts of the celebrities who come there....the same opinion was expressed by other people who visited it....
Went for the wine brunch last Sunday and we thought it was fantastic. Great food spread- and good service. Keep it up.
