5 Instagram-Worthy Restaurants To Check Out In India

Instagram-worthy restaurants

It is true that good food is largely responsible for a good mood, but that’s not enough to enjoy an outing at a restaurant anymore. We live in the age of social media where our decision to head to a culinary spot depends on a visually-appealing Instagram reel. For the team at ELLE India, it often means checking out the restaurant’s Instagram page to get a lowdown on the interiors. If it looks pretty, it makes the cut. And restaurants seem to have got this memo. Sure you could cab it down to your favourite spot, but it’s so much more fun on a Vespa. Hop on to your Vespa, catch the light and posing for the pictures. In fact, it might just make the perfect prop for your reel, its dual tone does stand out.

From enjoying a glass of wine in a cosy spot surrounded by potted plants or getting transported to an island vacation with breathtaking tropical views (while indulging in gorgeous and delicious plates of food), these 5 Instagram-worthy restaurants are perfect to elevate your ‘gram game!

1. Azule, Goa

You can never underestimate the power of natural lighting, especially during golden hour, and this picturesque beachside restaurant in Goa offers just that. You’ll want to wait here till the sun sets–who would want to miss another photo op, right? Bamboo roofs, wooden and wicker decor, a focal-point-worthy ‘embracing hands’ sculpture, and large rustic windows that allow plenty of breeze to flow within–define Azule’s interiors. Whether you want to stroll on the beach with a Margarita, or enjoy an  intimate dinner in a cosy cabana with lip-smacking European food, the upscale indoor and outdoor space allows you to be amidst the calming views of the sun, sea and sand while relishing global delicacies.

2. Zerua, Mumbai

Exquisite handcrafted cocktails against the backdrop of mesmerising skyline views merge to create an ambience for that perfect Instagram shot at this rooftop bar. Spread across 14,500 sq ft, Zerua offers delicious plates of sushi, fresh-outta-the oven pizzas and scrumptious grilled meals amidst tropical lush greenery, potted plants, earthy tones and Basque-inspired interiors designed by architect Ashish Kambli. The best part? The restaurant features air-conditioned cabanas so that you can sip on refreshing cocktails and indulge in Asian, Mediterranean and Indian fare in tranquility.

3. Pink Elephant, Hyderabad

The all new Pink Elephant makes you want to turn on your camera as soon as you enter with its picturesque lineup of mini elephants. The massive space is divided into the fountain courtyard, the monument room, elephant lounge, a luxurious private dining room and a private bar. The Elephant lounge, which is a great space to catch lunch during the day, transforms into a space for drinking and dancing by night. The Courtyard’s high ceiling area is fit to sip on a glass of wine or high tea with ample sunlight seeping through. The mouth-watering regional dishes presented in a mix of thalis, matkas and khurja crockery is a celebration of flavours to every region in India.

4. House Of Boho, New Delhi

With a fusion of bohemian aesthetics and hints of modern comfort, House of Boho creates an artsy ambiance for you. Think larger than life sculptures and paintings along with rustic elements that still bring the element of luxury as you dig into a delightful selection of handcrafted beverages, aromatic coffees, scrumptious fusion dishes, and mouthwatering desserts inspired by global flavours and bohemian influences.

5. Cosie, Pune

Staying true to its name, Cosie offers quaint nooks and corners to feast in a setting as stunning as the food. From the playful swing seating to the vintage charm and elegant lighting, this free-spirited villa has a relaxed, easy-going vibe along with decor and food that will uplift your mood. The best time to take a photograph is right by the windows where the lighting is perfect for the ‘gram-worthy shot!
