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.
84 Barton Centre,
Perched upon the thirteenth floor of the Barton Centre, with an open-air terrace, Ebony serves European, Parsi and South Asian food, and gives a perfect view of the city. The restaurant, which overlooks the bustling MG Road, is an ideal place for a candlelit dinner.
The Tower Kitchen
16th Floor, UB City 24,
Vittal Mallya Road.
Located on the fifteenth floor of Canberra, UB City, the restaurant offers a view of the Bangalore skyline. There’s even a helipad! The restaurant is loved not just for the view that it offers, but also for its food and service.
45 Kalena Agrahara,
Set in a farm located in Bannerghata Road, the restaurant offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience. “There are seating arrangements under tree shades where one can enjoy a candlelit dinner or an afternoon lunch (except when it’s raining). You could also sit on the porch and eat while you soak in the countryside-like setting,” says Sonali, the owner of the restaurant.
The Taj West End, 25 Race Course Road
Described as being “too grand for just four walls,” Blue Ginger in Taj West End is an open-air restaurant that offers Vietnamese cuisine.
Teak flooring, fire torches, mood lighting, soothing waterfalls and more- India's first Vietnamese restaurant offers an unforgettable dining experience in an authentic ambience.

This rooftop multi-cuisine restaurant gives you a view of the city action and even if it's not ideal for a candlelight dinner, the ambiance is perfect for a date.
