One of the best places to eat in Old Manali. They serve very good continental and Italian food. Almost everything on the menu is good. The ambience is fantastic and overall an excellent place to go.

The restaurant is amazing. The food was great. There are many options for seating which is great. We sat by the river outside and the view and the noise was amazing. Loved hearing the flow of the river while we enjoyed our authentic Italian pizza. The place is not pricey at all. Few things that can improved upon are when... More

This cafe is in the beginning of up hill road for Old Manali or just after the bridge. Food was awesome, we came here at night and nobody was there at that time however the noise made by flowing river water was very soothing to ears and that rejuvenated us completely.

Stayed a week in Manali and found ourselves coming back daily to Cafe 1947, the Iced Coffees were a favourite of mine! The staff were friendly and it was a laid back chilled atmosphere.

This was our second time at Cafe 1947 and it was even better than the last time. Great ambience, by the river, cool seating arrangements and good value for money. The pastas are of good quality and very well done. The tiramisu is one of the best I've had. And the chocolate cake is so decadent and out of this... More

Around Old Manali, this was my personal favorite. All the cafes have pretty much the same sort of menu- comfort food and drinks. But this one has a fantastic outside seating area right next to the river, games and good music inside, clean bathrooms and a really chilled vibe. It's also a bit cutoff from the regular old manali road... More
