We had gone over for dinner at this recommended place and we didn't appreciate the lackadaisical service or the highly priced food/drinks as opposed to other nice places with great food. The food was also just average. The ambience is good but overall not something I would recommend.

The rating is only for the amazing decor, ambience this place has. We took a table in the open and as the time passed, the place was beeming with people. The music, decor made the ambience perfect. The food though was only a little above average. Worth going once if you are in Manali.

extensive and rather bizarre cocktail menu- from the classics to what can only be called a white wine spritzer with chunks of apple in it! the nuts and poppadums are free and there are heaters and a bbq area also- we didnt eat dinner here and it was quiet the night we came

I was on a family vacation recently at Manali for four nights after a gap of many years. On the very first day went for dinner at Johnson's Cafe to celebrate my mother's B'day. Each and every dish especially variety of Trout fish, Lamb & Chicken were exceptionally good. Service and staff is also excellent and good value for money.... More
