Many of us look for the opportunity for some fresh air and great food? Here are few of those places which are cute, classy and offer some great food with a view and fine service. Some of them double up as a romantic place which can be a great way to spend Valentine’s or your anniversaries and birthdays, while others are the ones which are perfect for a Sunday brunch with your friends.
Upside Down, Koregaon Park, Pune
This restaurant is a favourite of many because of the very pretty outside seating area, perfect for a Sunday brunch with friends. The white coloured retro style chairs, with colourful upholstery and the verandah style setting, will take you in the mode to relax and the one you can not get out of, easily. The food is great too, a generous mix of Asian, Italian and the regular North Indian grub which keeps everyone involved and happy.
Cirkus Contemporary Kitchen & Bar, Kalyani Nagar, Pune
This property is a nice bungalow turned into a restaurant that has a sort of romantic vibe to it. Surely, it is one great place for brunching or even night munching but it can be really nice for couples to have some good time here. The pink chairs and the ambience is really cute kinds and offers some good change from the mundane fine-dine places in the city. The food is also great and they have almost everything: Pizza, Sushi, North Indian Kebabs and the mains which you can rely on.

Te Amo Barbeque, Chandan Nagar, Pune
This restaurant is set up on a terrace so it doubles up as a rooftop venue as well. The major attraction is the fact that it is really roomy and spacious so you can totally avoid the awkwardness there is, when the tables are too close. The ambience is spot on, the chairs and tables are about average but the food will compensate for the seating. The continental food is great here and so is the regular North Indian grub, the portion sizes for the mains are really well done and nice, you will really feel the value for the money you spend here.

The ambience and the vibe of the place is very much inspired by Greece and the way things are there. All white upholstery, curtains and seating that is pastel too. The food and service are great and a special mention goes to the cocktails. The menu is a mix of Italian, Asian and Indian but the Indian grub is what takes the cake here. Very nice Kebabs and Biryani, something that you will go here again to eat the same thing.
JW Food Truck, JW Marriott Hotel Pune
The flight of food trucks gave this star hotel the royalty to do it for their own good so they tucked away this sizeable food truck inside their garden which makes this one perfect location. Now, it is mostly a given that all of these food trucks are on the road and they do not offer much of a view as such. It is totally the opposite in this case and a beautiful, scenic garden accompanies the food truck with some awesome American Style Burgers, Hot Dogs and Milkshakes. On some days, there are flatbreads as well; the best part is they are all priced under Rs. 200 for one dish.
