These Outdoor Restaurants Offer The Best Views In The City


One of the most incredible experiences of staying in Mumbai is the sea, which cannot be said for other inland cities in India. For people who love to spend their evenings eating out, the city offers plenty of best view restaurants, including unadulterated vistas of the sea and amazing deals at selected times of the year.

Scroll below to read about outdoor restaurants and bars that offer stunning views of the city – making it perfect for everything from a date night to brunch with colleagues.

1. Estella, Juhu

Estella, Juhu - Live More Zone

Located on Juhu Tara Road, this outdoor restaurant offers an endless view of the sea that’s probably unmatched in all of Mumbai, even if other options on this list are quite up there as well. They have a relatively huge property, too, especially considering it’s in Mumbai.

If you’re there to finish up work in the afternoon heat, you can always sit in, but if you’re there in the evenings or night when the weather is pleasant, make sure to get a table in the outdoor area for best effect. Their menu is a melange of fine dining, bar food and quirky cocktails, so make sure to know what you’re going to order to go along with that view beforehand.

Where: Nichani Kuttir Building, Juhu Rd, Chandrabai Nagar, Juhu, Mumbai.

2. Aer, Worli

Aer, Worli - Live More Zone

One of the more outdoor restaurants on the list, Aer in Four Seasons in Worli, has been on the top of most bars-with-a-view lists for quite some time now. We especially love it for its view of the glittery South Mumbai skyline infused with the sea, as well as its bright neonish decor that has stayed the same throughout the years yet still never feels old.

While they do have food options, it’s primarily a place known for its cocktails and other spirits, so definitely make the required arrangement for driving back home before you head here.

Where: 1/136, 34th Floor, Dr E Moses Rd, Worli, Mumbai.

3. Lake View Cafe, Powai

Lake View Cafe - Live More Zone

A bit different from the other places on this list, Lake View Cafe in Powai doesn’t offer a sea view. Instead, the view here is that of the Powai lake, and if you know what we’re talking about, you’d be heading here quite frequently as soon as the monsoons hit. Situated inside the iconic Renaissance Hotel, the vibe here is calm and fancy, so make sure to dress your best.

The best bet for food here is not to have any of it and instead go for something {or a lot of things} from their bar menu, as it’s extensive as well as varied enough to keep you going through the night. That’s not to say that it’s not great for food as well, as they have plenty of options on their North Indian/Italian menu/Continental menu to gorge on along with the drinks.

Where: Lake, PLot No 2 & 3B, ground floor, near Chinmayand Ashram, Powai, Mumbai.

4. Dome, Churchgate

Dome, Churchgate - Live More Zone

Located on the eighth floor of the InterContinental Hotel, Dome has a spectacular view that is truly unmatched. Boasting an open-air cocktail lounge, the restaurant offers an informal atmosphere, ideal for a post-work drink session. The menu features premium cigars, wines and spirits, an extensive variety of grilled meats, seafood, and vegetarian delicacies cooked live in the terrace’s open environs.

Tip – Plan ahead and get here a little before sunset and watch the Marine Drive Promenade lights coming on as it gets dark.

Where: 135, Marine Dr, Mumbai.

5. Koyla, Colaba

Koyla, Colaba - Live More Zone

Offering unforgettable views of The Taj Hotel and the Arabian Sea, Koyla is a perfect place to seek solace from the city’s hustle and bustle. The décor is very subtle with a Middle Eastern vibe. The Mughlai style of cooking inspires the food – don’t forget to order their Achaari Paneer, Lehsuni Palak, Chooza Biryani and Ghosht Lababdar.

PS: They also have sheesha that is tobacco-free and cost less than INR 100.

Where: 3/23 Kamal Mansion N.A. Azmi Road, next to Radio Club, Apollo Bandar, Colaba, Mumbai.
