Good place for a quick bite!

I have been visiting Nainital amost every year, for the last 15 years, and Cafe-de-Mall is one of places I prefer, when it comes to ordering snacks or a light meal. The best items on the bill are cappuccino and french fries. Dosa and veg cutlets are also good enough. The food is prepared fresh... read more

I was quite dissapointed by the food at this place. The coffee was good but the sandwich and a few other dishes I've ordered on two occasions disappointed me.

We went to this place for dinner, the soup quantity is amazing, however the taste of food is not at all up to the mark as per trip advisor rating. Rates are reasonable but the food is real bad, we ordered chicken & it was uncooked.

Beautiful view of the lake from the table.....even more beautiful chicken do pyaaza.... Lovely ambience makes you feel closer to nature.... The bells of the Naina devi mandir can be heard clearly throughout the day from this place .. Dying to go back again....

We had some beverages here, so its not right to comment on the food at this place. The service was ok and the hot chocolate and coffee we had were decent. Nothing great to write about the ambiance or the service. The view of the lake from the restaurant was good.

This is a nice calm place with tasty food. Although the sitting area is small but has a good view of the lake. Staff was nice and helpful and the place was less crowded and very less waiting.

A fun place to eat. Located just across the naini lake, it offers a great view. The food is tasty & their amazing sizzlers deserve a special mention. Ate quite a few times at this place during my stay at Nainital & it never disappointed.

Both veg and non-veg served here, alas, both equally not good.A very small restaurant at lake side (opposite side of mall road). Hardly 10-15 people can dine at a time.We actually accidentaly got into this as there were no restaurant serving lunch at 4 pm.The food is not good neither the interior.
