This one is an absolute delight. The place is utterly charming and colorful. The view is absolutely breathtaking! The service is a bit slow and the food id pretty average, but the staff and the ambiance totally makes up for it.

Tucked away but a real nice place. A great view from the balcony above the wall of the fort. Very unique 'seats'. Very friendly waiter. We had pizza and it tasts wonderful. The food is not expensive but very good.

This restaurant has really colorful decorations and if you sit out on the small balcony there is great views. However, much like other restaurants in the fort the food is of the multicuisine bland variety. There was very little flavour in the food, certainly nothing special. The service was good from our waiter, but it is a little more expensive... More

Someone may say another place created for tourists - maybe that's right, but it's somehow different than the others. The food is very good, and... More

I am glad we took the decision to stay here as coming from a city life I wanted a little peace. Jaisalmer is just an hour or maybe less away so the place is ideally located. It takes about 3 hours to see Jaisalmer. So you can come back to the resort and if you want peace you can acquire... More

Very nice place with an excelent view of the city. It has kind of a hippie style that feels very good and comfortable. The owner was very nice with us and gave us lots of turistic tips. The food was nice too and not too expensive. The masala chai was great, by the way.
