If you want to get away from all the crowd in the center Varanasi and relax watching the holy waters of Ganges and the stairs in a beautiful restaurant, than you should hire a Rickshaw and ask the driver to take you to the Assi Gath (Assi Stairs). There you will see the Festive Villa. Try to get a table... More

We had almost every breakfast, lunch and dinner in this place during our stay in Varanasi. The food was very tasty, friendly service and nice views on the ghats. Highly recommended!

Blessed food. Blissful view on the Ganges. Awesome staff and the owner Babu bhaiya is a very friendly person. You can also get your currency converted. Felt like home.

After watching the aarti in Assi ghat we wanted to grab quick dinner, so Festive Villa was a great option. located right on the ghat the view is wonderful. Food and service was average, price okay. Dad went to the washroom and said one needs to watch the head, else there can be a nasty bump.

No Delhi belly here! We ate here twice whilst in Varanasi. The owners were extremely friendly, the service good and the food was delicious. The view is great for watching the evening ceremony. A peaceful haven in a bustling city. Definitely worth a visit!

Refreshing drinks and a nice view, the owner comes out herself to take your order. She is friendly. For a real Indian experience, go at sunset to the upstairs balcony... for the swarm of buzzing insects and families of geckos that surround them. Nice place all round.
