very good restaurant with amazing view on Shimla

This restaurant has a great location, on the 8th floor on the Combermere luxury hotel with panoramic view. Even a little bit more expensive than other places (not so much) it is a very good value. The food is excellent, any kind of style everything is tasty and delicious and the service is nice... read more

Excellent Food to begin with nice seating and service. The view is amazing too! Try their Pollo Asado Con Spinach you'll be elevated to another world. Cafe Sol Special burger was also good. Go with their recommendation and you wont regret it.

Went to eat here again from reviews on trip advisor. Fancied something different from Indian food. Very modern and quite trendy. Service was good and food excellent. Had a chicken and seafood mix with rice and veg. All very delicious but have to say the piece of fish was cooked to perfection. Not cheap tho compared to normal! But worth... More

The other time we went for cake and coffee as we were celebrating a birthday. Once again we were very pleased... More

Shimla unfortunately has a dearth of good eating places in mid-range, and Cafe Sol is one of the few places available. I have been to this establishment several times for the past few years.

Ours was a short trip of 3 days to Shimla, and hence we could not explore too many restaurants. But the ones which we did visit, Café Sol was by far the best one. The restaurant is a part of hotel named Combemere. It is located slightly off the main road (Mall Road) and you need to walk down a... More
