Had been meaning to try this new restaurant in town eversince it was advertised in the local papers couples of months ago. Eventually managed to drop by for lunch with hubby last Saturday.
Located on the 7th floor of Tandis Center, one of the few and new modern shopping complexes ever built around the Tajrish area, the restaurant is well-positioned to take advantage of one of the sprawling urban centers in Tehran. Being on the topmost floor of the building, it offers a very spectacular and panoramic view of the city. If only the weather was less colder and less-polluted during these days, it would make a perfect dining out in the open air with its beautifully erected tents and spacious dining area.
Foodwise, I must say that Elysee caters one of the best selection of western style and seafood cuisines in town, after Bistango. The salmon and hamour fish menu that we had were excellent. The spacious interior, modern decor and lay-out and cozy atmosphere are just perfect for a fine dining experience.
From the website, apparently this elegant establishment is owned by the Saba Group of companies, one of the prominent business circles in Tehran, owning, among others, the Tandis Center itself, various cafe, bakery, supermarket and soon to be built Darakeh hotel chain in Iran.
Another perfect spot for an evening rendezvous with family and friends indeed...
