Although Ozora opened its doors only less than two years ago, it has managed to redefine the idea of open-air restaurants in Kolkata. It boasts a fine dining ambiance and a gorgeous view that is truly mesmerizing. Relax with your date and enjoy their special cocktails while watching the sun dip slowly into the skyline of this city. You will also like their fruit hookahs. Ozora is situated on the 20th floor of a popular mall in the city - Acropolis Mall. The decor is excellent for taking and posting your pictures on Instagram and the plush setting coupled with the beautiful views will take your breath away. The cozy vibe will make you come here over and over again. Try out the hookah, cocktails, burgers, daab chingri, and Moroccan chicken when you are here.

The quinoa popsicles and dal makhani tart at this skybar are delicious and a must-try for fusion food lovers.

Tip from Trip101 local expert

Be it get-togethers with the family, hangouts with besties, or a romantic date with my partner, Ozora is my place to go. Not only is dining at 328 ft a one-of-a-kind experience, but it is also a stone's throw away from my place. The restaurant is located on the 20th floor of the Acropolis Mall and the food here is completely out of this world. Apart from the usual sweet corn chicken soup, reshmi kebabs, fish tikka, and chicken butter masala, I love their oyster shrimp, garlic fish, and roasted chili lamb. Make sure you try some of these recommended fares when you are here and you will not regret it - you have my word.

Posing against the backdrop of the city skyline The creamy Kitkat shake

I visited Whats Up! Cafe on a pleasant afternoon with my school besties and fell in love with the lively ambiance of the place. You can choose to sit indoors or outdoors, and both areas are beautifully decorated. I prefer the open-air space on the rooftop as it gives a brilliant view of the city. Plus, the cafe hosts live music performances on the rooftop on certain days. While all the cocktails here are worth trying, if you prefer non-alcoholic drinks, try the Kitkat shake. It's so creamy and indulgent that you'll be asking for more! Since it's really popular and almost always full, it's best to visit this cafe on weekdays or at odd hours.

PaPaYa Modern Asian Bistro

Contributed by Trip101 Local Expert, Rituparna Pal

This modern restaurant on the 11th level of Magma House in Park Street is the perfect spot for foodies looking to spend quality time over innovative dishes and scenic views. It was love at first sight for me. The stylish interior, along with the floor-to-ceiling glass walls offering lovely views of the cityscape, is bound to impress anyone.

The eatery specializes in pan-Asian cuisine and serves them with a fun, modern touch. My favorites here are the spiked Berkshire pork bao and mochi ice cream - both look cute as buttons and taste delicious. They also serve a wide variety of sushi and sushi rolls, as well as Chinese, Thai, Korean, and West Asian dishes. Don’t forget to try the mocktails as well. My drink of choice is the Gondhoraj Long Island Iced Tea.
