The food is ok. But the restaurant is on the top floor of a hotel and has very good view and good atmosphere. We had dinner there. There was live music.

The pool was an infinity type and the bar was next to it without seating and waiter service. A most pleasant spot to relax after watching England getting hammered at cricket!

Sitting in the open on rooftop, enjoying the pleasant December weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Food was excellent and great ambience. Even service was par excellence. Overall a perfect place for an evening. The pastas deserve a special mention.

This is a very popular bar/restaurant adjacent to the roof top pool of the Hotel Raintree, St.Mary's road, Chennai. The view is quite good, the cool breeze in December, very invigorating. The pool itself is quite small, but on the pool side, you can enjoy the happy hours from 3-7 PM, while enjoying the ambiance around. Ideal place for a... More

Good Ambiance and Good Service. Starters very good. But the main course , especially the briyani was very average and meat was not well cooked. Need lots of improvement.

Above Sea Level offers a 270 degree panoramic view of Chennai. A great place to unwind with a cold beer after a day in the office and take in the view. I didn't eat here during my stay but the tables always appeared to be occupied so that must tell you something.

We dropped by one evening to have a small dinner and a drink at the restaurant. The evening breeze was strong and cool. The night views of Chennai was great. The food and drinks were good as well but we received quite a shock when the bill came. The wine attracted a 58% VAT which was not indicated on the... More

Being a sucker for outdoorsy restaurants, I am a regular at Above Sea Level. This is one of those places that never fails to disappoint. The menu is really interesting- my all time favorite is the hummus platter. The north Indian food is simple yet really tasty! The selection of drinks is great, and I love the cocktails! Definitely a... More
