Translated into French it would mean 'the garden', and sure enough, the cafe Le Jardin actually faces the verdant gardens at The Oberoi. It serves breakfast over a buffet, while the lunch and the dinner are mostly a la carte. One can sip a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy tranquil views through the tall French windows overlooking the gardens. To break the monotony of the buffet, the chef keeps the theme of the food variant. There is a lot on offer here from Continental to Indian and a different menu surprises delighted guests at regular intervals. Le Jardin also holds a Sunday gourmet lunch that is much loved by its regular clientèle. Keeping in mind that children accompany their parents over the weekend lunches, there are activities like face painting to keep them entertained. The outside space serves as a counter for the live grill on certain occasions. The beauty of the garden and the scrumptious food go down well with a glass of chilled red wine.
