A good option

For either a quiet outside lunch with a view or evening entertainment with the inside bar and lounge restaurant this is worth it for those who don't mind spending just a little bit more.

Had dinner and drinks here with friends.We sat outside by the river and it was a perfect ending to a great day. We were in India during the heat wave this past summer and took a weekend trip to Manali where the temps were much cooler, and being able to sit outside in a sweatshirt and pants, felt like heaven....

Difficult to locate without GPS. Parking was another bother on the winding lanes. But definitely a place to visit for a cool evening meal. Must have ample time on hands as the name suggests.

The location is very prime, the heart of Old Manali. It has got a restaurant which serves delicious food, a bar and an open area to sit outside and enjoy the nature, just adjacent to a stream. Enjoy live music!

Food is fantastic- Portion sizes are generous I would recommend sitting outside as your right next to a river of fresh water and views of the mountain never seems to get old! The cocktail menu was lovely and the was the perfect way to spend evening with friends!

This is well located in Old Manali with a garden terrace overlooking the river. The food was standard really. The mocktails were really thirst quenching and juicy. But we ordered a mohito cocktail and it was so bad! A nice little place overall though.

This place was a whole new experience. Cozy interiors with large windows and comfortable seating. There are dinning tables in the back lawn beside the river. This particular setting is way beyond explanation the lush green hills and small huts, beyond it one can see the snow covered peak. They play soothing music and staff were friendly. I would strongly... More
