Great Music and good ambience!

We entered Johnson's cafe quiet late on a Saturday night. The security guard won't take us in because it was already 11 and the place was jam-packed but after endless requests (and standing in the rain for half an hour) we were let in. The place is quiet nice..the best thing about this place that... read more

The most pathetic breakfast experience I have had in Manali so far. Stale food..exorbitant prices for grubs and "couldn't care less" attitude.. We are currently in Manali living at the Johnsons lodge next door and don't still know why we decided to come here for breakfast. First the kitchen wasn't ready..it took a good half an hour for the food... More

We visited this cafe after reading the good reviews. Although the ambience and view lived up to expectations, the food I felt was average and expensive for the taste. Not more than a one time visit.

The best Food and especially the Death by Chocklate I have ever had. They mix small quantity of Kalhua in DBC and that makes it more yummy.

The worst experience we've had on our entire trip which lasted 12 days around Himachal which should speak a lot. We got into the restaurant and were greeted by an extremely rude attendant who was outright brash and didn't seem like he wanted to serve us. We waited for 15 mins for someone to take our order and finally left... More

Visited in October 2014 with my better half specially to try their famous Trout fish which was amazingly delicious. If you want to try trout fish with different flavours, this is the place to go..
