Reading great many things about this, we had made special plan to dine here but upon reaching we were told the place was closed for 10 more days due to renovation. The surprising thing was that there was no renovation work visible and the person responding to us seemed quite disinterested in serving any customers.

Went a few times to Cafe 1947 while we were in Manali, and thoroughly enjoyed each meal had. Supreme Chicken Steak was excellent, and the Pizza was delicious, even better than the big brands. The ambiance was cute and music was really good. Definitely will visit whenever in Manali, and highly recommend it to all!

From my 7.5 year old son : I really enjoyed the pizza, it was the best pizza in India! I liked the live music and it was not too crowded. I really liked the board games and the fast service for food. From my 8.5 year old son : I liked the atmosphere around me. It was a nice place... More

If you are looking for the best wooden oven pizzas, then Cafe 1947 is the place for you. This place is located right next to the river and has the best ambience with a very great collection of music. Owned by two musicians from the hills, this place is definitely worth many visit.

Nice ambiance. Food is just about palatable. Location is excellent. Electricity is erratic therefore no cold bevrages. TOILET can be smelt from a distance of 15 feet. They dont open before 11am so not for early tourists. The owner loves to socialise wth the patrons hence the service suffers dramatically.

the cafe serves one of the best pizzas and lasagnas in old manali. the ambience is good and the best thing apart from the food is the guitar setup. there are 2 electric guitars and one acoustic one and all 3 are kept tuned unlike the untuned ones you will find at other places. they have 2 amps with one...
