Go to this two year-old, warm and sprawling restaurant set amidst the quietly elegant surroundings of the NCPA. The menu continues to bristle with new excitement, the latest must try are the new sections of vegetarian main plates and “pilafs”. Must ask for the flavour-packed Zereshk — Iranian Barberry Pilaf with succulent Baby Lamb. Even the Greek Pilaf Spanakorizo — Spinach Tomato and Fresh Dill with Feta and Potted Rice is worth trying. Farrokh Khambata and his Levantine cuisine (the anachronistic name for the eastern Mediterranean — Spain, West Asia, Italy and Turkey) has the city eating out of his hands! Amadeus’s centre piece remains the wood-fired Cocas from Catalonia — a Spanish version of pizza, that has generous portions of rectangular crisp flat breads coupled with a wide choice of toppings — a sure hit with the gourmet as well as the uninitiated palate. Veggies rejoice! Superb Cajun Potatoes with Liquid Goat Cheese Sauce, Arancini Barley Risotto and even the mains of Pinto Bean Enchilada and Corn Water Chestnut Steak with Gazpacho Sauce and lusciously creamy Sard-stuffed Mustard Piquillo are must tries. While some of the dishes are fine-tuned to the Indian palate, others like the Pork Belly (rich, tender and cooked sous vide) are tailored to hit the sweet spot with gourmands. Butter-poached Salmon with Kaffir Zest and the Mushroom Filo Mille Feuille are winners too. There have been a few underperformers (lacklustre Lamb Albondigas, Paella and the Filet Mignon). Must try the recently introduced sinfully dark and dense V 8 Chocolate Cake (eight luscious layers of chocolate), the best Crème Catalan in town, paired with Mango Tequila Chilli. The all-wood bar (holding court right in the centre) and the dining hall sprawling around it are comforting. The menu offers comfort to those who want it and adventure to those who don’t.

The walls of this resto-bar will draw your attention as soon as you enter it with the pictures of music legends donning the walls. If those don’t, the live band performance certainly will. Sitting at the heart of Nariman Point this beautiful and funky place has a acoustically treated ceiling with digital prints of swirling flamenco dancers, Dali-inspired bar top (of pressed glass bottles) and bar stools and tables (sculpted by the famous Arzan Khambatta) set the mood right for the evening. Monday through Thursdays are reserved for background music, and live events are slotted for Fridays and Saturdays. House DJ and Guest DJ on most nights. An array of tapas and small plates to eat while you drink sangria and cocktails (Earl Grey Martini and Hibiscus Bellini recommended). A great and affordable wine list of Spanish, Chilean, Argentinean, World wines with traditional high-end wines and bubblies from France. They have a great selection of Single Malts, whiskies and vodkas too. To top it all, Dom Perignon has a special bottle label printed for Amadeus. Perfect place for a perfect evening.

Overpriced good food. We had a range of tapas. Lamb, sea food, veg and meats. When we asked for the portobello, they said it was out of stock and then had the audacity to ask if 'button mushroom' would 'do'!
Furthermore, iced tea - ultra sour! Twice. To be fair, they didn't add it to the bill in the end after I had rejected it. Prices are outrageous for food that is fairly good and not awesome.

Amadeus is situated in Nariman Point and has a stylish, low-lit lounge that morphs on a Friday and Saturday night into a sangria-fuelled hotspot for South Bombay's old-money crowd. There is live music and DJs, It also mainly rolls out western dance, but will throw in a few Bollywood teasers.
