I have been to Ebony on a date with my fiance. This restaurant is the most romantic restaurant I have ever been to. Located on the 13th floor of Barton Center, they have a inner dinning area and a outer one, I for one prefer the outer one as the view of this place is truly heavenly. You need to book your tables in advance as its always full. The staff of this place is extremely polite and friendly. I ordered Sangria's which by far is the best Sangria I have tasted. The food though is extremely delicious, we ordered Por-Pia Crab and Prawn rolls for starters, they were so delicious that we wanted to order another plate. Then we ordered Burmese Khaoswe which again was different and superb. I recommend these two dishes to everyone who visits this place. The music too is very romantic and apt with the ambiance.
If your looking to take someone special to a romantic place then Ebony is the best choice.
This place is located on the top floor of the Barton Center near MG Road and has a indoor restaurant as well as roof top terrace seating. Since it was raining when we entered, we opted to sit inside. Had a spread of Italian pasta and Thai curries and most of what we ordered tasted yumm. The best was penne rose which we ended up ordering again and had a sumptuous fill. For all that we had the bill came to about Rs 500-600 per person but the food was really good.
Got to admit - when I see & taste good food I give it top marks! Have been to this place a couple of times for just drinks & snacks as well as lunch & dinner. The Kakori kabab is probably the best I've had in Bangalore. So also with their bacon wrapped prawns. Lamb shanks were very succulent & soft on one outing & so was the mutton rizzala on another. Also their buffet is nothing to write home about - I guess its just there to cater to the office crowds around MG Road - which is why I give this place 1 star less. Otherwise the place makes for a fantastic outing esp when sitting outside on the terrace & looking out at a green Bangalore.
Went to Ebony tonight (a Saturday). Needless to say, reservation is a must, and so is sitting outside... The view is great and so is the ambiance, but the seating was disappointing, not worthy of a good restaurant. The food was amazing, and portions of appetizers were much more than normal. Desserts were also great. Service was poor, very slow, even had to remind them thrice for the bill. Overall, a good experience, but that was mainly due to the weather. If the seating is improved, it would become an amazing place...
Once you are in Bangalore, this is one place you will always hear about. On the 13th floor of Barton center, it provides a great view of the MG Road and UB City. Food is good. Better to reserve a seat prior to your visit, preferably in the open area.
