We stopped by for a late lunch on a weekday. It wasn't crowded and service was almost too fast - we'd have liked a little gap between the first and second course, but the mains had arrived before we were done with the salads and starters.

That said, the food was just awesome. The arugula pear walnut salad was perfect, and the Spanish prawn starters (can't remember the name) were different, and yum. We both ordered different fish dishes, and both were very well done.

The chocolate truffle cake is to die for. It is super rich and as if that wasn't good enough, they serve it swimming in a coffee sauce - and somehow all of this still doesn't feel like you're adding weight to your stomach! I would definitely love to visit this place again!

we've been here earlier and had enjoyed our visits, but this month it felt extra special. we went there for the first time with our toddler and took the seat next to the large windows. ordered ice ea and cold coffee and desserts (which are fabulous by the way) and it started pouring! this is an enclosed roof top cafe so we were safe from the rain and were greeted with rain laden breeze all the while. needless to say our daughter had a blast. unfortunately they didnt have the black bread available (which we had picked up the last time and had loved).service was good. would go back!

Stopped by on a rainy weeknight for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised...

* Location-Cmh rd, and very easily accessible. However, there is no valet, and hence parking might be difficult to find, especially over weekends.
* Ambience- very Bistro-ey :) warm & cozy feel to the place. It's on the rooftop, and surrounded by trees. reservations recommended! especially over weekend given the few tables. They need to open up a few windows or get a slightly busy exhaust as the kitchen was cooking up some heat..also a few signs or labels in the lift to indicate where the cafe is, would be great.
*Food-definitely amongst the best European in bangalore. Good, varied menu. The sausages and schnitzels look really amazing. Portions are quite generous. We ordered mushrooms as appetisers, the meat loaf, beef roulad and for desert, lemon pie and Philadelphia cheesecake. Deserts were really good and fresh, but our favourite was the Bavarian meatloaf- Juicy, succulent and well seasoned. One of the very best I have had so far. The orange mojito is definitely a must try.
* service-friendly and courteous. Helpful staff.
Overall, a definitely pleasant and relaxing place, to chill out with friends and family. I will be back for sure.. ;)

Stumbled upon thus quaint restaurant by chance.
First impression for was a very casual place with thoughtful seating arrangements and as it's on the 3rd floor, quite airy to enjoy the Bangalore weather.
Met the owner (a German gentleman), and was happy with the hospitality received.
They paid attention to the fact that my daughter was with us, and ensured that we enjoyed the process of the bartender making her a virgin mohito... They even customised a watermelon drink for me!

Talking about the food, can still feel the excellent preparations on offer. The meat loaf and the sausages are highly recommended, and can't go back for some more....

Overall, a great experience of hospitality and food!

Have been there recently and wondered how I havent been here before.
Its on the roof top with a nice view. A simple setup but warm. The service was also wonderful with great attention. Loved the food with good european flavors. The prawns from the appetizer section was great too.

An excellent place for a quiet evening.
