Monica's restaurant is easy to be found. It has a nice terrace and you can see the fort. Staff is very polite. I ordered a vegetarian sweet and sour which was tasty and my partner really liked his paneer butter masala.

Monica's is just by the main gate of the Fort in Jaisalmer, above a shop. It has a nice terrace so you can watch the world go by in the busy streets below. We had a good chicken curry and a really delicious paneer and spinach one. If you like your food spicy, ask for it as ours wasn't spicy... More

Located right near the fort entrance, this restaurant serves excellent non-veg. They even paid attention to some of our special food requests.

The owner should definitely invest in at least one more waiter as the poor chap was run of his feet all the time. The food here was a little pricey (like everything in Jaisalmer) but the taste was very good. I highly recommend the Elaichi (Cardamom) Chicken, it was really nice and I've since cooked it at home. A simple... More

We had the veg thali and were very pleased with it. This restaurant is more expensive than the guides seem to think, but the food is of a high standard and you will not be disappointed

Ambiance manageable but lacks majorly in... More

The unlimited refill vegetarian thali for 200rp was on of the best thali's i had in India. The location was perfect in front of the fort gate, overlooking the street and fort. I came back after my camel safari, and the food was great again. Staff not overly friendly and you will have to call them over, but i didn't... More

People told me good things about the Monica, but the service was horrible. I don't speak hindi, a well located restaurant should have someone who can answer questions in English. We just left.
