We give you 20 romantic date places in Mumbai for every kind of budget - and some special info on each!



1. Juhu Beach


romantic date places in mumbai 1

If you can look past the hordes of tourists on the main beach, pick up a gola and sukha bhel and take a romantic walk towards Vile Parle side eventually settling near the quieter Silver Beach. This one is perfect for a walking date - holding hands and discovering each other. Arguably one of the best dating places in Mumbai.


When to visit: Sundown


Cost for two: Starts at Rs 30 for sukha bhel

2. You, Me and Cuppa Tea, Belapur


romantic date places in mumbai 2

Vashi has the usual mall staples, but drive a little further on Palm Beach to Belapur for a series of cafes and bars frequented by the locals. On Parsik Hill is this hidden cafe with its warm interiors and a very enterprising owner. The knowledgeable and courteous staff help you through the extensive tea menu. (Not a place for coffee lovers!)

When to visit: Sunday afternoons


Cost for two: Rs 300

3. CCD, Deonar


romantic date places in mumbai 3

Our shock at discovering this place was greater than your surprise at finding it on our list! Unlike the other crowded, small outlets, the one is Deonar is near the hills and the famous RK Bungalow. Frequented mostly by the nearby TISS students and locals, this is a great setting for a quiet coffee before you head to your weekend getaway.

When to visit: En route your weekend drive.


Cost for two: Rs 400

4. Cafe Madras, Matunga


romantic date places in mumbai 4Piping hot idli with filter kaapi, or a hot sambhar-soaked vada are enough to warm you up and bond with that special person. If the wait is too long, avoid cutting your date short by adding in a walk at the nearby Five Gardens.

When to visit: NOT on a Sunday


Cost for two: Rs 450

5. Bayview, Colaba


romantic date places in mumbai 5

This one is a well-kept local secret. Seaview in Mumbai isn’t a rich person’s domain. Out of the clutter of 5-star options is the Strand Hotel rooftop. A fabulous Gateway of India view, cheap alcohol and candlelight - your wallet and heart are both equally happy!

When to visit: Sundown


Cost for two: Rs 800

6. Gostana, Bandra West


romantic date places in mumbai 6While this remains one of our favorite places for going solo, it makes for an intimate setting for two as well, if all you want to do is relax, read and enjoy yummy burgers. We always hope we get a glimpse of owner Arpana’s gorgeous dogs!

Cost for two: Rs 800

7. Le Cafe, Chembur


romantic date places in mumbai 7Chembur isn’t well-known for being date-friendly, with its own residents preferring pretty much any place else. However, amidst the Udipi joints and vada pav havens is a charming little cafe. Get a Sangria pitcher, start with the mezze platter and gorge on their pastas or mains. Service is slow, hence order first and talk later.

When to visit: Weekdays, because weekends is full of families gawking at couples.


Cost for two: Rs 1000

8. The Birdsong, Bandra West


romantic date places in mumbai 8This little cafe is tucked away in a Bandra bylane (i.e., you will not find parking). Walk in holding hands and enter a beautifully done up cafe with warm wooden interiors and doodled walls. Their hot chocolate is a must; in fact, this is a great place for all kinds of chocolate. Sit for hours and watch Bandra’s fashionable best. Ideal for a first date.

When to visit: Weekday afternoons and evenings


Cost for two: Rs 1200

9. Jumjoji, Bandra West


romantic date places in mumbai 9While the Britannias and Jimmy Boys are for all gourmands, Jumjoji has a great setting for a date with Parsi food. Their small menu is delicious, and the lighting plus limited seating is perfect for intimate conversations.

Cost for two: Rs 1200

10. Jamjar Diner, Versova


romantic date places in mumbai 10

Even in the middle of a thunderstorm, you can hear Michael Jackson’s entire discography while eating some Eggs Kejriwal. If you wake up hungover and remember rather late the brunch date you had made, Jamjar is your best bet with fabulous all-day breakfast options.

11. Cafe Mangii, Powai


romantic date places in mumbai 11While the chain is all over Mumbai, we picked this outlet because of the spacious seating and its proximity to the Powai Lake. Get one of the lake-view tables and indulge in conversation over their superb pizzas and wine.

When to visit: Sunday lunch


Cost for two: Rs 1700

12. Tasting Room, Lower Parel


romantic date places in mumbai 12Tasting Room is best enjoyed at leisure. Mostly because the lady is surely going to run straight into Good Earth and start planning some house decor reorganization. Bring her back to reality in style with the signature teas and sandwiches. There is a dining menu too. Highly recommended for heart-to-heart conversations.

When to visit: Anytime.


Cost for two: Rs 1800

13. Aoi, Bandra West


romantic date places in mumbai 13Aoi, with its paper birds and an ever-changing Japanese-inspired menu, is a charming little Bandra joint away from the Leelavati traffic madness. Do check on seating availability before heading there and try getting the bar stools. Create your love story while the chef creates delicious sushi and yummy katsu curry.

14. SmokeHouse Deli, Pali Hill


romantic date places in mumbai 14The erstwhile Yellow Tree was a favourite for its vibe, and the new SmokeHouse elevates that up ten notches. This one is closer to its superb Bangalore counterpart in terms of charm and the relaxed ambiance. Everything is usually good to eat and we highly recommend their various flavoured mojitos. Try getting one of the three outdoor tables as the waiters are the least pushy there.

When to visit: Lunch, extending to sundown


Cost for two: Rs 2000

15. Out of the Blue, Powai


romantic date places in mumbai 15

There is a stark difference between the two OOTB outlets. The Bandra one is noisy and family friendly, but the Powai one is quieter with a romantic setting on the balcony. Powai is full of many cafe options, but we would still go for OOTB because of the vibe and the fantastic food.

When to visit: Weekday dinners


Cost for two: Rs 2000

16. Big Bang Cafe, Bandra West


romantic date places in mumbai 16In the night-time, this is a crowded bar; but at sundown, it is a quiet, romantic sit-down above the bustling Bandra streets. Take advantage of their happy hours, get one of the tables next to the ledge and stretch out your romantic date to shake a leg on the dance floor a few hours later.

When to visit: Sundown


Cost for two: Rs 2000

17. Olive, Mahalaxmi


romantic date places in mumbai 17

Ladies, their fantastic outdoor bar is tiled. Ergo, avoid stilettos. Perfect mood setting, less noisy than its Bandra counterpart. Tip: for Rs 100 or so, the nearby stable boys will show off the racing horses to you and let you feed them.

When to visit: Dinner

Cost for two: Rs 3200

18. Gadda La Vida, Juhu


romantic date places in mumbai 18This one boasts one of the best sea views to be had in the area. The candlelight, yummy (pricey) food and the sound of the waves makes this a must-visit. Once there, you won't think of any other places to go on a date in Mumbai.

When to visit: Sundown (you won’t get the couch after)


Cost for two: Rs 4000

19. The Table, Colaba


romantic date places in mumbai 19

If this is where you are taking your lady, could we have your number, please? This is the place to let her know how important she is, over some of Mumbai’s best food. The place is a little hard on the pockets, but oh-so-worth it.


When to visit: Start of the month, while your bank balance looks healthy.


Cost for two: Rs 4000

20. Dome, Marine Drive


romantic date places in mumbai 20Dome at the Intercontinental continues to be the best location from which to watch the Queen’s Necklace at night. The beautiful white setting adds a touch of fancy to the place, and if this is a popping-the-question date, we definitely recommend this as the place to do it.

When to visit: Sundown


Cost for two: Rs 4000
