For dessert, we had the homemade chocolate cake with ice cream. Very well made. The place has a great ambience as we were there on a Saturday night... read more

One of the most beautiful outside seating and once again good food including pasta and pizza. The place also has DJ night on Saturday. Service is slow but given the scenic place worth a wait.

The ambiance was nice, music loud but manageable. The menu had the right mix of dishes and we were all set for a real nice dinner. However credit needs to go to Johnson's lodge to mess up the dinner so thoroughly. The food was not done properly and was below par. We tried 3 dishes including couple of their famous... More

Although food was very good and we enjoyed and appriciated their place a lot but their prices are very high. Would recommend fellow traveller to give it a try to change taste.

Good variety of food. Staff friendly. Only downside is that it is a price level above other places in Manali. But well worth a visit as a treat. Nice breakfasts too.
