Wonderful view of the lake Pichola

A must place to have a relaxed , slow Lunch with a magnificent view of the lake Pichola. The restaurant has seating to ensue all guests have the advantage do the view. Small place with long dinning hours by guests, so plan accordingly. Food is a good blend of Indian and continental. Amazing... read more

This place, after all the good reviews, was sorely disappointing. I came for the food. The view is very impressive but that's where the positives end. The food was generally flavorless, with tomato soup that tasted like watery Campbell's and curry lacking the spices. And the chicken had bones! You say, duh, all chicken meat has bones. True, but generally... More

Did not stay there but went there for a lunch. Amazing food and super service. The restaurant overlooks the lake and it is a fantastic view from all tables. Must visit whenever you go to Udaipur.

Too bad that the waiters are so unhappy, grumpy and unhelpful. You have to wonder what causes such bad morale. Poor management, poor pay, bad tips. The food was ok but overpriced. Yet the location is wonderful and it is decorated beautifully.

We went twice at the jagat niwas restaurant and I liked a lot the food. The cheese naans are perfect, the meat is good and they have a bar license so they have a lot of cocktails. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

We stayed in Jagat Niwas Palace for 2 nights. We had dinner in the restaurant first night. We had booked the terrace table a week in advance but to our surprise they initially denied and when I firmly told that I had email confirmation, we were asked to wait for 15 minutes even when we reached on time. When we... More

The restaurant at the Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel is not only a beautiful location on the rooftop looking out over the lake, but the food is excellent! We ate dinner both nights here and loved every bite. Dramatic views of The City Palace as well.

Tried by recommendation from a certain guidebook, wasn't disappointed. Indian dishes were all good and tasty (we had couple of them, all among classic fare). Lassi was good too. Service was efficient enough. The only one thing I didn't like was the fact they allow customers to smoke at a table, which sometimes can be of a great disturbance to... More

We really, really wanted to love this restaurant - the views are spectacular, the flowers, white arches and sweeping staircase make for a beautiful sight. Romantic with a capital R. But then we ordered (actually we tried for about 15 minutes to order) a cocktail. The service was as poor as the cocktail. The lal Maas was acceptable, but the... More
