Sea View Hotel: "A Beachside Gem" Sea View Hotel Tip by ashutoshg

Sea View Hotel, Mumbai: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Location, location, location.

Sea View, a bunch of shabby cottages clustered around a large, open deck overlooking Juhu Beach, is a great place to enjoy a lazy weekend (or weekday) afternoon.

Platters of seafood, prepared in a variety of styles from Goan to Tandoori, washed down with quantities of beer is the way to go.

It's a perennial favourite with certain types (C List Bollywood directors, aspiring actors/models, "dealers" of all sorts and aircrews on layover, to name some) which makes for superb people watching and explains the rent-by-the-hour cottages.

That said, the restaurant is suitable for families from noon to dusk with the beach easily accessible via a flight of steps. Kids love mucking around in the sand while parents watch indulgently from the deck.

End a family afternoon out with a sundowner or keep drinking into the night when the seamier lot comes out to play.

The service can be a bit patchy, they accept cash only and the menu is relatively pricey but (location, location, location) I rate it among the best places to enjoy a sunset in Mumbai.

Favorite Dish: Tandoori pomfret
Fish fingers with tartare sauce
Fried prawns
Steamed rice with fish/prawn curry
