Expensive but good

We ordered a cocktail, a mocktail and a veg mezze platter.. Everything was beautifully garnished.. And was full of flavour.. One of the few places in Shimla which did not disappoint us.. Also, the seating area is nice..

Eating a real hamburger in India feels kind of spectacular, though the meet may be buffalo instead of cow - just guessing. The atmosphere might attract some people, but not us. It's like they're trying to look better than us, and better than they are. Food is fresh but boring. I could eat at places like this everyday in Sweden,... More

Calm and cool ambience. Desserts are absolutely brilliant! The chocolate pastries are a treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. The pizza was fairly regular stuff. Opt for a pasta instead, well done up with a great mix of veggies ! Go for the ambience and desserts.
