So what if the name of this restaurant is not accurate and has nothing to do with the location? This Silver Beach Cafe is located in the landlocked cacophonic Fort area. It gets a thumbs up from my well-travelled witty foodie guests.

Decor

Walk through the unassuming exterior into a warm, two-floored inviting space. Sit in the high ceilinged (exposed wooden beams) first floor which is bathed in daylight flooding in through the large glass windows.

Food

The menu zigzagged to include a vast array of dishes which is usually not an encouraging sign. But, happily most of the dishes delight. Pasta cooked al dente and a cohesive and delicious filling of the spinach and cheese ravioli to fish in harissa sauce with just the right amount of kick to it. Must try the thin crust pizza with sundried tomatoes, olive, and pesto. The gooey chocolate pizza with marshmallows makes for a sweet finale. However, the classic pepper and garlic fondue, Argentinean frittomisto (fried calamari), Quesadillas, enchiladas and Turkish mezze platter are okayish.

Minus Points

On the downside, the South African Peri Peri chicken was slushy and lacklustre. As was the molten chocolate cake. The wait staff was courteous and attentive (our order of roast chicken was not served) but could have shown a better understanding of the menu.

Our Point

This charming new, two-levelled Fort cafe serves reasonably priced World cuisine, from breakfast, through fondues to chocolate pizza. Appetizers (Rs. 300,) mains (just under Rs. 500.). Well stocked bar too. To end in Neil’s words “For these “foreign-returns” who were finding out that an idli from Santosh Sagar costs a dollar these days, the pricing was modest for the service and ambience offered”.

Doughnut fans this way please... sinful and loaded with calories! This madness is conjured up by passionate dough wizards who knead, twist, flatten, punch and bake behind a glass wall (at the Oberoi, Inorbit and Breach Candy locations only). Best sellers are the Colour Me Bad, Cool Blue Ice, Hazel Dazzle, Rainbow Surpise, Chocolate Spot and Raspberry Ripple. OC (orange-custard filled doughnuts), the popular Double Trouble, Midnight Beauty, My Original Donut and Dark Knight are some of the other options you have. Blush Factor, Original Sin, Choco Bomb, After Dark and Cinna-ster are some of those which have stirred up a dessert revolution of fresh and fluffy proportions. Pay your ode to the "O" – Ring Donut, Filled Donut, Classic Donut, Savoury Donut or Flavoured Donut – for breakfast with coffee or as just as a dessert. Ask about their doughnut and coffee specials. Order five doughnuts (priced at Rs.50 onwards each), they'll throw one in on the house; order nine, and it's rounded up to a dozen.rnP.S.
