There is a slight mismatch between the cuisine served in this rooftop restaurant and the name that suggests the continent of Europe! That is because there has recently been a change in the plans of this once-grand restaurant. Still to find its feet, currently, the only eye-popping aspect of Le Belvedere is the view. Because of its proximity to the lawns of India Gate, do try and get a table by the windows. Position yourself appropriately and you can see Rashtrapati Bhavan and the whole sweep of India Gate. Alas, the Oriental food does not match up. What is billed as Kothe is regular steamed dumplings. Tenderloin with Black Bean is not bad.

Perched on the 20th floor of Hotel Le Meridien, Le Belvedere affords a beautiful view of Lutyens Delhi. With good food and drinks and the perfect ambience, this resto-bar remains one of Delhi’s hidden gems. A live band plays each day except Mondays. The oriental specialities have some good fare like the assorted dim sums, the wet noodles, Dragon Spring Rolls and Pork Spare Ribs. For drinks stick to the safe straights or if you must, then try Sea Breeze, Manhattan, Sex on the Beach, Rocky Special, Mojito and Martini. Other favourites are Lobster Belvedere, Chicken Black Pepper, Crispy Chicken and Baby Corn Butter Garlic SauceIt’s a perfect place for a quite dinner. Wash it down with a hot cup of Jasmine Tea. This resto-bar retains its old world charm.
