Restaurants with a view

When we hear ‘restaurant with a view’, several images flash across. For the Silicon Valley, it normally translates into punching buttons in an elevator that usually opens to a rooftop space that offers a view of the city’s skyline.

Bangalore is growing, and it’s growing fast. This being said, restaurateurs are taking advantage of these new heights – quite literally. While some prefer the old fashion garden view, other are more inclined to rooftop panoramas. Either, dining with a view does evoke a sense of calmness.

Here is a list of some of our favourite restaurants with a view.
