After our Rohtang trip, we visited 1947 and it didn't disappoint us. It has one of the best Italian food which you will not find anywhere in India. Located near Beas, if you are in Manali. Be there :)

After a morning trip to Solang, we visited cafe 1947 for lunch and immediately fell in love with the place, as we stepped down the stairs. Ambiance: Could not be better. They have both indoor seating and outdoor seating by the river. It is not one of those fancy restaurants but rather a cosy one. The owners are music enthusiast... More

The restaurant is located in old manali ,flowing by its side is a small water tributary. Pasta here is good . Also the desserts are good to try. The sitting offered is both inside and outside so atmosphere is overall good.

Food is not that good. The staff is rude. They need to work on their people management skills. The place is over-hyped. Never going back again.

The first time I visited this cafe, I was amazed at the theme. The owners being music enthusiasts, have modeled the cafe's theme on Metal Music. The menu too is vast and includes the likes of : Slayer Pizza, Burger of Bodom, Metallica Pasta etc. The meat dishes here are to die for. So are the Masala Chai and chocolate... More
