Went to the West View Grill at ITC Royal Gardenia tonight for my wife's birthday. Absolutely the best spread of grilled meats I've ever eaten in my life. I can't recommend this place enough if you are a meat lover - you'll have a ball. They had everything - squids, octopus, massive tiger prawns, lobsters, halibut, trouts, quails, spare ribs, lamb chops, tenderloin et al and you are free to eat as much as you please.

The spread includes a selection of appetizers, soups, main course i.e. the grill, cheese, dessert and finally tea or coffee. For the quality, quantity, service and ambience, I'd give it 5 stars.

Paid around 5 grand for two including two glasses of decent wine and a 500 rupee tip. Superb value for money.

Very nice! I am tempted to check this place out. Do they have a vegetarian grill too? Other day I went to Caperberry next to Manipal Center on Dickenson road. Interesting space. Star chef Abhijit Saha was on vaccation. Had a few starters - Tapas platter etc. Found them a bit on the oilier side! Spanish cuisine I believe.

^ Dosa only for Re.1.
Apparently a local MLA is trying to 'give back to society what he got from it'.

Ho hum.

Guys any recommendations for a nice French restaurant in Bangalore. This would be for a large group of at least 12 people.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Any idea about a restaurant called medici which also happens to be in Indiranagar.

Edit: According to this link, the French quarters seems to be closed.

^^ Strange, I havent been there for a couple of months so dont really know. Why dont you call and find out? I think I saw it open a few days back. There is another place called masala hut or something next to it which is under construction, maybe the person saw that. French Quarters is open only during Lunch or dinner hours so thats also a possibility.

NO idea about medici bro, sorry.

In Koramangala, we had Mexican food last week at the "Oceans". The food was decent. We had Tacos & Burritos. The restaurant is located on the Koramangala Club Road, close to Shanti Sagar.

Are there any other Mexican food restaurants in Koramangala ?
