The only restaurant that is working in Renaissance. However the food quality has deteriorated a lot. Taste has taken a beating. The view though is very good. Ambience is also great. Service is good.

Good cozy place, you'll have decent cup of coffee/tea with good options of snacks. I was their in the times for Easter and they had one small party for one of the guests, so I enjoyed the food as well as the company thoroughly.More

All restaurants except this are remains open during the covid times though most hotels had stated limited outlets and increased few. It saves a la carte and buffet all meals. Requires mask at all times. The QR code is there on the table for all...to scan. However the menu on buffet has becomes reduced so choices are less. Ambience and seating is good with distancing.More

'Lake View Cafe' by Renaissance gives stunning views of the quaint Powai Lake. The soft outdoor lighting elevates the beauty of the place. The restaurant offers both outdoor and indoor seating. While the outdoor is more close to nature, if you prefer AC in the...hot and humid Mumbai climate, then even the indoor line close to the glass walls gives decent views of the lake. The access to the swimming pool is restricted.  One can't compliment the food as much as the ambience. We opted for the dinner buffet. There was no beverage or soft drink to start with. The corn soup was too thick in consistency. The white pasta was kinda raw. Risotto was good but, like most other dishes on the menu that originally tasted pretty bland, had to do with some seasoning. Biryani came without the customary raita. Paneer Makhanwala was good and made up for the loss of raita with the biryani. Onion kulcha was freshly prepared and good in taste. Desserts had limited vegetarian options with a Black Forest Mousse that tasted more like Blueberry. And as against the Stone Cold Hokey Pokey ice-cream promised on the menu, the ice-cream were the regular Havmor packaged cups. Plain average! While the spread was decent, the taste did not quite live up to the ambience.  The service also left a lot to be desired. Even the indoor dining area was infested with mosquitoes and repellents were arranged after quite a while, on request. Considering this would be a daily nuisance, the hotel needs to find a permanent solution.  The average dinner buffet is priced at Rs 2500 per person. We got a 50% discount through Dineout yet didn't feel it was value for money. A random online search showed room tariff inclusive of Breakfast and Dinner at approximately Rs 6000. Perhaps that would be more value for money! Ambience: 4/5 Taste: 3/5 Service: 3/5 Hygiene: 3/5 Value for Money: 3/5More

The buffet has vast options including Asian, European, Indian counters among others. We had both lunch and dinner buffet on the same day as per our staycation package. In dinner many lunch items were repeated but given the vast range its not a big issue....Food quality is a above average to good.More
