By far the best restaurants in Shimla. The food is contemporary, flavors authentic and menu never ending ;). They need to work on the ambiance a lot more - it comes across as average especially given the prices they charge for it.

Cafe Sol is at one end of The Mall in Shimla, You need to go down a few steps, and there is signboard on The Mall proclaiming its name, so do ask around. It has the usual mix of Italian and Mexican fare with the focus on being an up-market cafe, rather than a serious foodie restaurant. We had a... More

This place was hard to find, but well worth looking for. Very good service, lovely cakes good menu, great service and friendly staff. They have a big outdoor area which gives you great views over the valleys. Food was good and the beer was cold. Would love to go again.

Perhaps the only decent eating place on mall road. Good food, reasonably fast service. Good drink options, so hard to find beer and good food in one place. We had lunch on the mall road and in the same hotel(Combermere), the other restaurant on 5th floor ( serves Indian food). Food is bit over priced, it can cost easily 2000... More

We had two fantastic meals at Cafe Sol, both off their Mexican menu. All the dishes were delicious and probably the best non indian food we have had in our 3 weeks in India. Drinks were reasonably priced and there were a wide range of cocktails, mocktails and other hot and cold drinks like tasty iced coffee. There was an... More
