I'm smiling from ear to ear. Your emails have this effect on me. Once again with thanks. I have called and contacted some of you and I'm sorry for not being able to follow up with many more. Will definitely do so. Please do keep writing in (rashmiudaysingh2010@ gmail.com, facebook), we will go lunching together, like I do with three vibrant young rising stars today. The Canadian-born vivacious sardarni Neeru Bajwa has been rocking Punjabi movies with her superb acting and is all set to do that with Bollywood. Her coactor, Chirag (Ram Vilas Paswan's son) inspite of living in Delhi is making waves in Bollywood with his winning combination of talent and good looks. And the creative producer of Chirag and Neeru's latest film, Neeraj Soni is as much a foodie as the actors (though Chirag prefers North Indian food) and is equally gifted and great fun to be with.nnFirst that Parisian-style wrought iron lamp post (with a sign hanging on it) beckons. Then the floor to ceiling glass wall (with the leather booth seating within) tempts us to walk in to this new quaint Europeanstyle Silver Beach Cafe. Never mind if the concepts are mixed up, God father" booths with hanging lamps, mahogany wooden interiors et al. And then to top it all, a charming and cozy Goarestaurant-style loft, a glass shelf stocked with international wines too. And interestingly it all melds into a charming whole.nnEqually mixed up is the food menu, however, it delivers neither taste nor value. It zig zags from Italy into Bali and Lebanon and even Japan. We order a string of dishes. Except for the well made cous cous salad with the perfect bite and moisture, the rest is either overcooked or underdone. Chewy Chicken Tangy curls (stuffed with spinach, parmesan cheese and mushroom,) dry and hard tempura shrimp, an undercooked pasta and a lacklustre Balinese lamb curry complete our meal (Rs 2000 for two). Most of the wines are unavailable and it's the chocolate pizza, (thin crust oozing chocolate (see picture), which revives our spirits, comforts and delights. Like my gorgeous guests."

Great location, great decor and ambience. Fabulous food!! And so reasonably priced. But... unfortunately the owner has perhaps hired some young and inexperienced waitstaff. We were blown away by all the actual elements of the dining experience. However, our meals arrived in haphazard timings, and my main course did not arrive at all. In the end we said forget it, and I ordered a coffee instead, which was the best coffee I have drunk in Mumbai. However we received the bill and I noticed an error. After waiting ten minutes (at least) the bill came back, again wrong. Eventually a third bill came; Rs 800 less than the first bill. It made me suspicious the young staff were trying to get some extra "10% service charges" added on, but maybe it was just incompetence. For such first-class food and environment, that is so reasonably priced, I'd be happier to pay a little more and get first-class service.
Favorite Dishes / Drinks: artichoke and potato salad, english cheddar stuffed tempura mushrooms

Silver Beach Café is a nice café like bar which offers good quality liquor and very good ambience for heart to heart talks. The international wine collection is my biggest attraction besides the Goan style interior which relaxes the mind and heart of one and all. The food variety is also impressive from Japanese to Lebanese they have everything that goes well with wine and other liquor. My favorite dish here is Chocolate Pizza and tempura shrimp. Silver Beach Café is a wonderful bar to spend evenings.
