why havent i yet written bout this hide out of mine? one of my fav places to have a rendezvous with anyone... mostly my first preference to meet someone for the first time and chill out! This place is more of a leisure lounge and not a cafe per se. So though i do agree with the review below, i think it is how its meant to be. The place is thoroughly meant for whiling away time, with the comfort of nature and fine breeze in the evenings, but of course not without the best of company u wud love to be with. But sometimes its jus so ideal to jus sit alone and ponder... for hours! So i shall give 5 stars for ambiance and experience but...
Yes the service is almost not present, unless ur a regular and kno the waiters by name. The service is late since most peopel come here to spend longer periods of time. The place is for the sophisticated, priced absolutely extravagant but i guess that makes sure to filter the unwanted crowd they don wish to attract and maintain a class of their own. I kno many places that started chic but lost its class sooner than we cud imagine.
The food is good, not great, you can choose the eco-cafe (chamiers) over amethyst in this regard, but considerin the fact that amethyst is a trend setter in such open air cafes which was followed by places by mocha, ashvita and chamiers, we have to give it to them. I guess there is no more hookah sellin here, mocha has taken over that speciality now. Anyways my favourites here are the omelletes, fruit juices, frappe!, and the yogurts. But of course if you are out to treat urself on food, this is not the place to hit!
The 60 rs surcharge and the better service to diff color skins are news to me, its been a couplea months and its time i make a visit again to kno better!
