Bangalore restaurant reviews Continental

Vicky's La Terrazza

Saturday, October 24, 2009Me! In words

It was Mom's birthday and I had given her a choice of places we could take her to celebrate. She decided on continental and I just had to go back to Vicky's La Terrazza to sample more of the menu. This time round we went in the evening and the place looked lovely. Dim lighting and a semi-open terrace made for a lovely setting.

For starters we had the chicken fingers with black olives in mayo. Hot and crispy, these looked very much like their fish counterparts and tasted just as good. The black olives were chopped up and dunked in mayonnaise making it at once rich and a bit tangy. A nice combination with the hot chicken fingers.

Kiwi and Litchee ice teas and good old lime sodas were the thirst quenchers for the evening. Though Vicky's does serve wine by the glass and bottle we decided not to go that way. And of course for Anoushka the mandatory garlic cheese bread.

For the main course I opted for the Ravioli do pollo arrabiatta. This was chicken stuffed ravioli yum yum!! in arrabiatta sauce. When the dish came, straight from the oven to the table, I was a bit sceptical about the quantity and thought I may need a salad to top the meal off. However, half way through the dish I realized that I may actually have trouble polishing it off. This was all thanks to the sinful cheese melted on top.

Sudhakar had the Chateaubriand with mushroom sauce, well done with mashed potatoes on the side. The mashed potatoes did not have a creamy texture but were nevertheless good. And the steak was too was excellently done with the mushroom sauce being the crowning glory.

Mom and dad, owners of small appetites in comparison to us shared a mixed grill - this had chicken breast, beef steak, lamb sausage and bacon garnished with pineapple, fries, veggies and fried egg served on a plate. This also comes with a sizzler option. A lovely combo of all the meats

Ask for what desserts are available, because not always do they have all that is mentioned. Most of the desserts are made in limited number and therefore may not be there. We had the almond creme brulee and the Mississippi mud pie. Both of which were heavenly.

This is the second time I am visiting Vicky's La Terraza. You can read the earlier review here. Service is good and you can be assured of having a nice and quiet dinner. The place doesn't get too crowded and is good for that romantic dinner. Parking though can be a hassle since there is no designated parking spot. The bill came to roughly Rs 1500.
