We started on our gastronomical journey with Pineapple Ginger Martini (Rs500) and Espresso Martini (Rs550). The Pineapple Ginger Martini is a mixture of pineapple and ginger where the ginger overshadows the tangy taste of sweet pineapple. Espresso Martini tasted more like cold coffee. From The Shot Bar were ordered B52 (Rs799) and Mocha Shot (Rs299). The fiery B52 shot tasted like sweet fennels while the Mocha Shot was a mixture of Old Monk and dark chocolate.

We were then greeted with Manchurian Sev Puri (Rs200). A flat Manchurian tikki was served with sev in a sev puri style. The tikki was soaked into the Indo-styled Manchurian sauce. We were then offered Paneer Makhani Tacos (Rs325) and Indian Tapas (Rs310). Regular Indian styled paneer makhani was placed on soft tacos and was garnished with onions which were soaked in vinegar. This fusion is a win! The Indian Tapas consisted of Pahadi Chicken Tikka, Chicken Tikka and Dakshini Chicken Tikka, each one placed on laccha paratha, accompanied with laccha onion. From the soups, we had Classic French Onion Soup (Rs325) and Wild Mushroom Soup (Rs575). The Wild Mushroom Soup is thick and creamy while the Classic French Onion Soup tasted more like caramelized onion.

Our host later came in with Cheesy Churos (Rs300) and Avocado Cheese Cake (Rs425). The churos were served with jalapeno sour cream and cheese sauce. The cheesy churos weren’t cheesy enough through they were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The cheesecake was layered with cream cheese and ripe avocado. Instead of baking, the churos were deep fried. Moving to main course, the chef served us the Balinese Curry (Rs250 for veg, Rs350 for chicken, Rs375 for fish). The veg Balinese curry was coconutty and thick and was served with vermicelli noodles. We concluded our meal with Poping Chocolate Gateau (Rs370). Every bite of the dessert was like a drop of heavenly chocolate.

The Mirabella-styled tacos and dessert is winner while the Balinese Curry with Madras curry touch should be a must try. The service is good. Not only the staff is very friendly and attending, but the chef and the mangers personal look after their guests. The portions of food is decent and the pricing is so so. So if you are in the mood for a romantic rooftop experience or a chilled garden-styled café or are simply looking for a decent Mediterranean meal, The House of Mirabella is the place for you.
