Estella – a recently opened lounge in Juhu is perfect for a date evening. Delicious cocktails and impressive food awaits you.
What Is It?
Picture this. A sky splashed with orange, the aroma of the sea mixed with the flavor of Australian cuisine and a glass of champagne-laced margarita.
Making your dreams a reality is the fabulous Estella in Juhu. Dim lighting, excellent food and soulful music is the theme of the restaurant. While the open air space has Juhu Beach as the backdrop, the interiors are dimly lit, full of rich, earthy colours. By dim, we really do mean dim. The servers actually move about with tiny flashlights so you can see the menu.
The server delightfully tells us that the cuisine is a blend of Australian extravagance and an Asian twist. We’ve got to admit, this seems like a match made in heaven. We started off with Tasmanian scallops that are accompanied with a miso dressing. While the scallops were cooked to perfection, the miso dressing overpowered the scallops just a tiny bit. But all is forgiven with just one bite of the spectacular pan roasted John Dory. It comes with a crab, jalapeno and cream sauce and if I could eat this every day, I would.
Aah yes! We must warn you that if you’re a fan of cocktails, you’re going to be thoroughly inebriated by the end of the evening. Estella’s bar has got its drinks bang on. The Yuzu Sour we ordered was just as wonderful as it sounds. The smoky notes of Singleton blend beautifully with the sours to create a tart drink. The Smoked and Aged is another one of our favourites. Think Manhattan but with rosemary smoke and port wine.
We’d recommend the place for a fancy date night. Book well in advance for spectacular skyworks and don’t forget to put on a nice pair of shoes.
