The Best Rooftop Restaurants in Delhi

Estimated read time: < 6 Minutes

I woke up this morning with a glow on my face and a twinkle in my eye.  All thanks to the dream I had last night. It was so beautiful and vivid that I hoped fervently that my dream would come true…the dream of sipping my favourite Rosé while relaxing on my imaginary rooftop restaurant overlooking the open grasslands of a hilltop. This set me thinking and I wondered if we take into consideration the view (not the crowd) that we would get to see when we decide to go to any eatery?

If not open grasslands on a hilltop, Delhi can offer you an aerial city side view that can make you feel on top of the world, especially in this beautiful weather. I have curated a list of the best rooftop eateries in Delhi for you:

Triveni Terrace Café

Tucked away in a corner far from the chaos of the city, this café embraces art and nature in one aesthetic frame. Their “beetroot halwa”, a variant of the classic “gajar ka halwa” is a mouth-watering dessert delicacy. It is one of those places where you can enjoy a quiet coffee and book combo.

Whether you are looking  for a nook for a peaceful date or a venue for a grand bash, this European-style indoor place is a delish pan-Asian delight. What can be a better dining experience than one with a stunning view of our favourite monument in the city, the Qutab Minar?

This is my personal favourite. Overlooking the Aravalli ranges, it’s live grill counter, and of course, the breath-taking view, steal the show. The charm of this rooftop restaurant housed in ITC Maurya, one of the finest hotels of Delhi, will definitely leave you craving for more.

Head to one of these to enjoy a romantic date, or a drunch with your family or a night with your friends.
