“Good food but watch out!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012 via mobile

Visited this place last Saturday with my wife and another friend. We had a sumptuous dinner and the ambience and food were really good. They have a limited selection of beers, so we were forced to have the kingfisher beer which is not of my preference! Another thing we experienced here which I was not happy about was that upon paying the bill, we counted the money twice amongst ourselves, and the waiter who was collecting the payment and we confirmed it was ok but after five minutes or so another waiter came back to us saying there was a rs.1000 short. This is the second time I have had the same experience in the same place so guys watch out and double check because the waiters at this place are upto mischief!

Its not cheap but the Ambience is wonderful, overlooking the Beach. The food is excellent and service was good. I would highly recommend a visit if you are nearby.

“Great location !”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

This place is supposed to be a happening joint to let your hair down after sunset, but I haven't gone after sun down so won't comment on that. We did go for the Sunday brunch. Super location, but the food was not great. Sitting out by the beach makes you feel like you're in Goa. And a Sunday brunch really makes it so relaxed and Goa-like. The brunch buffet was not great at all. The Veggie lasgna was passable, and the starters (paneer something, and crispy veg) were ok. There was a decent spread of desserts, but the mocha cheese cake tasted like bad coffee.
Overall, I'd definitely go back for an evening and check it out. But a must visit for the location!

“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Vie is my favourite date night place, the ambience is amazing, food is good too but they do need to work a bit on the service. Do visit it if you are looking for a romantic night out with your better half much better than the dome at intercontinental.

“Pretty little place...”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

We had gone last night to vie deck and lounge last night to celebrate our friend's bithday...a good choice we thought as we walked in.

In all fairness, the place was beatiful. We loved the wooden floors, the lemongrass frangrance that wafted through the place, the fluttering white draperies, the low lighting, the fact that the AC was NOT set at a temperature that turned the place into a freezer, the music was NOT at a volume where one has to scream to make oneself hear (why does this happen in most lounges? if i want loud music, i will go to a discotheque and not a lounge)

Coming to the food - the roasted tomato-basil soup was ok, so was the falafel. the hummus, however, sadly lacked flavour. We loved the couscous with grilled vegetables and the thai green curry and rice that we were served up - despite the fact that it was not on the menu. thank you, chef, for the same. but the biggest dissappointment came in the guise of chicken a la kiev - too much garlic stuffing that was still rather raw when it arrived at our table (now that was new as i never had a chicken a la kiev that had chopped garlic stuffed in it!), soggy crust, and chicken that lacked seasoning and flavour. the recipe needs serious work. The bill gave us a surprise too - we were charged for 6 sambucas instead of the 3 that we actually had. We could not understand the reason behind the 'confusion' - considering the fact that there very few diners last night. To their credit, the matter was settled amicably...but these incidents always leaves one wondering...

So, final takeways...great ambience, stick to the entrees and check your bill before your pay. Twice.
