Dome by Intercontinental is one of the quintessential Mumbai restaurants facing the sea. They have a wide array of food items. The ambience is an absolute win-win from the luxurious interiors to Mumbai’s favorite sightseeing spot right in front of you, it is divinity at it’s best!
Estella is a crowd favorite. This place has hosted some of the best sundowner parties with the salty Bombay breeze kissing your cheeks as the amethyst sky kisses the blue waters.

This one is a personal favorite and one of the cutest cafes in Mumbai with three outlets in Fort, Palladium Mall and Bandra. Firstly, three cheers to them for having all day breakfast and they offer the creamiest bagel and cream cheese, the luxuriously laid extravagant lebanese platter, authentic shakshuka, half fried eggs, garlic roasted baby potatoes, some of the fluffiest pancakes and waffles drizzled in maple syrup and nutella and rich ice cream sundaes that are to die for! The gist of the description is to just get going to these places and make your Galentine’s Day worth it!
