  • You can dine at Ecstasy even if you are not at Sathyam Cinemas for a movie; mention Ecstasy at the entrance gate to gain parking access (free, upto an hour). Generally, you are cordoned off to a (paid) parking lane corresponding to the movie you are watching
  • Mikael Besse’s other contributions include the, relatively mass-market, cylindrical donuts, black forest pastry-sandwiches and flaky puffs at SPIC movie refreshment counters. At the moment the Mikael Besse runs an international Pastry & Hospitality development consulting service
  • Mikael is proud of his skills as a chocolatier, and a box of bonbons from Ecstasy would rival Chennai’s best and are unsurpassable at their price-point

Amit Speaks

4.0 /5

In 2007, much before La Folie opened to critical and commercial success in Mumbai or even before L'Opera offered its first dainty macaron to Delhites, Mikael Besse set up an avant-garde patisserie inside a Chennai cinema hall. Ecstasy’s sleek minimalism still stands out as uncommonly purposeful; from buttery leather sofas and leaning nambe glasses, to warm mugs along with a pot of Valrhona Grand Cru hot chocolate, the experience is disorienting yet comfortable. It nearly manages to conceal the absence of Mikael Besse. A sense of ‘auto-pilot’ invariably starts creeping in when you notice that while some of Besse’s best creations (flak, half baked cakes) come out as good as the last one, gilded promises like the striking fig mikata, Chennai’s most Instagrammable dessert, desperately needs a taste-test. Tedium of predictability further implores the question: will Monsieur Besse return with something cutting edge or, will he join the list of expat-Chefs who came, conquered and went back?
