We ditched the restaurant at our guesthouse to have dinner at the restaurant at the Jagat Niwas Hotel. It turned out to be a great choice. After climbing the steps to the rooftop restaurant, we were quite hungry and were seated promptly at a table with a beautiful view of Lake Pichola. The dining room was very elegant and romantic....

The food is poor and grossly overpriced. They give preference to foreigners over Indians. The waiters ignored our calls and kept going to tables where foreigners were sitting. This habit is prevalent in all of Udaipur but they would just not care about anyone else apart from the foreigners. The only good part about the place is the view. But... More

There is no doubt the atmosphere and view from this roof top restaurant is lovely, but we were so disappointed with the food we had a lamb dish which was tasteless, very disappointing!!

The food here is really good, but for me it's the setting. Gorgeous views across the lake with the 'Octopussy' palace floating right there in the middle. Stunning views, delicious food, fantastic service... This is a great place to eat 😃

This is a very pleasant little palace style hotel well located in the old city in Lal Ghat of Udaipur. The accomodations are quite nice. A little spendy, but it provides a lake view with every room having a wonderful window seat in which to bask in the views of the "The Venice of India". It's VERY hard to get... More

Both the rooftop restaurant and the next floor down have charm and great views across the lake. I had some of the best biriyani there. The portion was very generous and steaming hot and tasty. The good meal was really enhanced by being there just as lights were staring to come on across the city and you could watch the... More

While the food offered was tasty, with decent portions, I was surprised that they did not have local cusines (except a few options) and had priced it high (perhaps due to the international tourists), but the views from the restaurant (overlooking the lake) were breathtaking.

Food was pretty average for the prices you had to pay. Acts like a 5-star restaurant, but is nowhere near (this is comparing it to other top-end restaurants in India). To be honest, the cheaper laid back restaurants are 1000x better. Don't waste your time or money here.

This was worthy of comparison with the excellent Ambrai restaurant - the other side of the lake. We stopped here for a drink in the day initially. The little windowed seating areas over looking teh lake are a lovely place to cool down with a drink. We returned that evening for dinner and had an excellent meal. Good value, very... More
